To Win Match
Bangladesh 17/4 | Tie 25/1 | India 17/100
While a stiff task awaits Bangladesh have notched recent upsets over India and also have a handful of promising emerging stars at their disposal.
Veteran batter Tamim Iqbal is still at the heart of the ambitions of the Tigers in ODI cricket though and he skippers the team.

Taskin Ahmed has been able to unsettle India before and he might be key with the new ball in hand.
Rohit Sharma returns to lead a strong India team out to put Bangladesh in their place.
It is unclear if Virat Kohli will play the first match of the series given how important he will be to India’s bid to reach another World Test Championship final.

Ishan Kishan might be the man who gets his opportunity to shine in this series with his devastating batting.
Verdict: India 17/100
