INDW VS BANW TEAM PREVIEWS
India Women have now lost their two previous matches and seem to lack that killer instinct needed in pressure situations. The performance against Australia was quite good with the bat but the bowling was unable to make the breakthroughs needed.
Still, despite that dip in performances India is the overwhelming favorite to win this match. Its batting order is much stronger than Bangladesh’s. You can bet on almost all of its top-order batters to get some runs in this match. We recommend exploring the Over/Under betting markets for players like Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, Mithali Raj, and Harmanpreet Kaur.
The depth and power in the Indian batting lineup are superior to anything that Bangladesh has.
The bowling lineup for India has been a big concern. Jhulan Goswami is continuing to plug along but she is nowhere near the bowler she once was. Meghana Singh has been quite inconsistent as well and we think she may miss out on selection.
India may opt to go in for an extra spinner since the surface is the same one that Pakistan beat West Indies on (and that one was already spinning quite a lot by the end of the match).
Bangladesh Women managed to get the better of Pakistan Women and came within a whisker of beating the West Indies Women as well. It has been a good World Cup for Bangladesh so far but we think it may struggle to pull off an upset in this match.
Bangladesh’s batting is very fragile. Fargana Hoque, Sharmin Akhter, and Nigar Sultana are all decent batters but they tend to throw away their wickets even after they get set. A collapse is never too far away with Bangladesh’s batting and we think they are particularly susceptible while chasing down a big total.
Bangladesh’s bowling has some good spinners that will pose a threat to India’s batting but overall, here too we see a lack of depth and quality. Salma Khatun and Nahida Akter are probably the only bowlers that you can think of backing.

PROBABLE PLAYING XIS FOR BANGLADESH VS INDIA

PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER: HARMANPREET KAUR
Harmanpreet Kaur is India’s most successful batter in this competition so far, having amassed 256 runs from five matches averaging 62. At the same time, she finds mention in the top-five batters list as well. Kaur’s unbeaten 57 runs off 47 deliveries at the back end of the first innings, helped India in posting a mammoth total against Australia in the last game. The power-hitter would once again be looking forward to playing a match-defining knock against Bangladesh.
PROBABLE BEST BOWLER: POOJA VASTRAKAR
Pooja Vastrakar has been one of the most consistent performers for India with the ball in hand, as she has registered eight scalps from five games at an average of 15, which is simply outstanding. She had finished with figures of 2/43 from her 10 overs at an economy rate of 4.3 by picking up the big wickets of Rachael Haynes and Ellyse Perry, respectively. The promising pacer would once again be expected to provide vital breakthroughs during India’s next fixture against Bangladesh.
