India is hoping to secure their place to their place in the T20 World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday night, with a match against Bangladesh likely to determine the second spot in the tournament.
After a pair of wins against Pakistan as well as the Netherlands, Rohit Sharma’s men fell to the group toppers South Africa on the weekend and must now get at least one more win to guarantee a place in the semi-finals.
The Tigers are on the same level as India in terms of points, but the Tigers are in the back of net run rate going into the game. A win could see the team move up to a second place with just one remaining game against Pakistan.
The game of India with Bangladesh will take place at the Adelaide Oval and is set to start at 7 pm AEDT.
