The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 has been a whirlwind of surprises. From the shock defeat of the defending champions by Afghanistan to the unexpected fall of the mighty South African side, the tournament has kept fans on the edge of their seats. Amidst these dramatic turns, India has stood tall, living up to its reputation as pre-tournament favourites. Now, in the city of Pune, they are set to lock horns with a resurgent Bangladesh—a team that has enjoyed a recent edge over the Men in Blue but has historically faltered on the World Cup platform. With such intriguing backstories, this match promises to be a spectacle.

The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune has been a batsman's paradise. With an average first innings score of 307 runs since 2017, teams batting first have crossed the 300 mark in three out of five ODIs.

It has been nine months since an international match was last played at this venue.

Veterans like Mushfiqur Rahim have stepped up, but the team's overall consistency is a concern.
