India’s batting issues
India’s batting faltered in the first warm-up match against New Zealand on Saturday, but they will have a chance to correct it against Bangladesh.

The Indian team was unable to produce good cricket as their batting line-up failed badly, the top order batsmen hurt them the most, they only managed to get 22 runs against New Zealand.
The warm-up matches started with upsets as Australia beat England and India was beaten by New Zealand. The failure of the top 3 batsmen had a ripple effect on the rest of the line-up.

Their opponent Bangladesh is fresh to play their next match as their previous game was abandoned by rain. They are ready enough to play their opponent and put a decent total on the leaderboard. Bangladesh will be participating in the World Cup banking on their unbeaten run in the tri-series against Ireland and Windies.
The Tigers, on the contrary, would be disappointed after their opening practice game against Pakistan didn’t see a single ball being bowled due to persistent rain. Bangladesh will try to start their tour with a win.
Both the teams will try to win and gain some winning momentum which will help them in upcoming big matches. Widely considered the dark horses in this edition of the World Cup, Bangladesh has a bunch of talented players who can outplay any team on their day.
Australia beat Sri Lanka and hosts England beat Afghanistan in the warm-up matches played yesterday.
