As a large contingent of Bangladeshis follow the likes of Argentina and Brazil in the ongoing FIFA World Cup, their national cricket side will do battle against India in what is often an intriguing battle in the ODI format.

One of those battles was a memorable series for Bangladesh in 2015. Led by Mustafizur Rahman who had burst onto the scene with his cutters, the Tigers sealed a 2-1 win against a full-strength India team. Since then, Bangladesh have continued to be solid in ODI cricket, qualifying for the 2023 World Cup with ease thanks to series wins even away from home against South Africa and West Indies earlier this year.

For India, there is the need to nail combinations as well as understand their bench strength. They were poor in the ODIs in New Zealand recently, but the return of a few key players is a welcome boost in conditions that will be similar to those in next year’s World Cup.

Rohit Sharma’s team start as favourites, but Bangladesh are a chance. When it comes to ODIs on home soil, the Tigers are a tough nut to crack.

Shere Bangla National Stadium Mirpur Dhaka Pitch Report and Weather

Perfect weather is forecast in Mirpur, with sunny conditions and a top of about 29 degrees.

The Mirpur pitch is often tough to bat on in T20Is, but offers more opportunity for strokeplay in ODIs. In the last five ODIs since the start of 2021, the average first innings score is 211.8, brought down significantly by a second-string West Indies who made scores of 122 and 148.

In the ODI series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in 2021, the average first innings score was 263. The team batting first won all three matches. But, there is a strong chance of dew given this match is in December.
