We have a debutant from Bangladesh as well, in the form of Tanzim Hasan Sakib.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be playing their last match in this tournament. They have a lot to think about with their squad, especially with the big tournament coming up. They have not performed as expected in this competition, which is a big concern for the selectors. They have had only one convincing win against the Afghans. The batting unit has been out of form, and they were not able to showcase their skills as expected. They will aim to end this tournament on a positive note and with a victory. This match will be a good chance for both teams to take something positive out of it. One will look to change their squad a little bit, while the other will want to end the season on a high. Stay with us as we bring you the toss and team news soon.
India are having a really good campaign so far. They were the first team to qualify for the finals after beating Sri Lanka in a very thrilling encounter. Their skipper, Rohit Sharma, is in good form and has scored three consecutive half-centuries. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are handling the middle order really well, along with Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya cleaning things up and down the order. Jasprit Bumrah is having an amazing comeback and is bowling lethally. Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja also had a fantastic outing against the Lankans on a spinning track. Overall, the squad is looking great and balanced. Ahead of the ODI World Cup, this is a good chance for them to try out some of their players to determine their bench strength.
