India will take on Bangladesh in hopes of getting their T20 World Cup campaign back on track after losing to South Africa in their last match. India have played three matches so far with two wins and one loss. Bangladesh, on the other hand, also won two of their first three matches and lost one. India, which is second in the standings, is higher than Bangladesh due to a higher net run rate. However, the race could be called out as Adelaide experienced heavy rain on the eve of the race.
The Adelaide Oval will host the T20 World Cup Group Stage 2 match between India and Bangladesh.
Both teams are vying to qualify for the semi-finals, so the weather will play a big role in deciding the group.
