On the same day, another warm-up match will be played between New Zealand and West Indies.

India seek their final XI for the World Cup
India had benched Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar for the previous match against the Kiwis in London. Apparently, both the players had a niggle which restricted them from playing. As this is the last warm-up match before the tournament begins, India would like to see their best XI playing to get an idea of the form the side is in currently.
Bangladesh yet to solve Mosaddek and Sabbir dilemma
Bangladesh has a fairly balanced side and they would be really confident after winning the Tri-series in Ireland beating West Indies in the final. Now that Shakib Al Hasan is back, Bangladesh needs to choose between Sabbir Rahman and Mosaddek Hossain, as only one of the two youngsters might get a spot in the XI. The lineup and performance in this match may help captain Mashrafe Mortaza decide.
Unlike the previous match day, Cardiff will have better weather when Bangladesh and India play. There are minimal chances of rain while it is expected to be partly cloudy through the day almost. The pitch might have some extra bit of swing on it due to the overcast conditions but mostly it will be a flat wicket with lots of runs on it.
