India and Bangladesh will take on each other in the last Super 4 game of the Asia Cup 2023 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. This match is a dead rubber because India have already made it to the final, while Bangladesh have been knocked out. They narrowly lost to Sri Lanka in their previous game.
The Bangladeshi bowlers did a good job to restrict Sri Lanka to a first innings total of 257. Taskin Ahmed and Hasan Mahmud picked up three wickets each. In the chase, a knock of 82 runs from Towhid Hridoy took Bangladesh to 236, falling short of the target by 21 runs. Bangladesh’s batting was poor throughout the tournament and that was what hurt them the most.
India, meanwhile, are unbeaten in the tournament so far. They come into this game on the back of a win over Sri Lanka. The Lankan bowlers did a good job to restrict India to a first innings total of only 213. Apart from a half century from Rohit Sharma, none of the batters could make a big contribution. But the bowlers, especially Kuldeep Yadav, ensured that India won the game. Yadav picked up four wickets while Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja picked up two each.

India vs Bangladesh Match Prediction
Unless the Bangladesh batsmen do anything substantial, a win is going to be out of their reach. Their bowlers have done well but the batsmen have let down. India are thus the favourites to win this game.
