Mushfiqur Rahim blasted an unbeaten 72 off 35 balls to guide Bangladesh to a sensational five-wicket win over Sri Lanka last Saturday. Shardul was instrumental in India winning the fourth T20I against Sri Lanka and because of his exploits in the game, he was even awarded the man of the match.

Victory over Bangladesh would take India's tally to six points, guaranteeing them a place in the final on March 18.

"We needed that win and the desire really drove everyone starting from the players, the support staff and team management", Bangladesh T20 Captain Mahmudullah said following his team's extraordinary win last week. "We need to be smart to take that calculated risk", he told reporters in Colombo, saying his side had to compensate for its lack of power hitters. "Now we want to move on with the positives towards the next match", added.

India don't have key players including regular captain Virat Kohli for this tri-series meant to give the younger crop a chance. Against Sri Lanka, they did without a significant contribution from Shikhar Dhawan, instead relying on their middle order to win.

After their opening defeat against Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma-led India have bounced back with back-to-back wins over Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and sit atop the standings with four points.

Though India have highlighted numerous younger players on their squad in the Nidahas Trophy tournament, they remain the favorites to take home the top prize. It would be a blunder to go by what Bangladesh dished out against them in the first match, for here is a team that has a wonderful ability to surprise you when you are least prepared for it. Shikhar Dhawan, 3. KL Rahul, 4. Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), 7. Chahal and Vijay Shankar have performed well, chipping in with wickets without conceding too many.

Bangladesh: 1. Tamim Iqbal, 2. Mahmudullah (captain), 6. Sabbir Rahman or Ariful Haque, 7. But the Indians were hit hard by Mustafizur Rahman and Co, and hurt pretty bad, and they had to wake up and smell the coffee. Abu Jayed could get the nod.

India's Rohit Sharma has struggled with his form during the Nidahas Trophy series.

India would, therefore, have to bring their A-game to the storied R Premadasa Stadium on Wednesday. Rubel Hossain is another bowler to keep an eye out for, but besides that, the Bangladesh bowling is as ordinary as it gets. Alternatively, YuppTV is offering streaming of the entire tournament for a fee of $9.99, available at this link.
