Still smarting after their loss to South Africa, India will take on Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval in a match that could determine the future of the side in the ongoing T20 World Cup. South Africa are currently leading Group 2, but India has the chance to regain that spot if they beat Bangladesh in Adelaide.
On the other hand, Bangladesh will be quite confident after its win over Zimbabwe. The match went down to the last ball and it was their first win of this tournament. India cannot take Bangladesh lightly, more so after their loss to South Africa.
