The two sides had not clashed in the group stage earlier and will be meeting for the first time in the competition in the Super 4 stage, with a spot in the final on the line.
Bangladesh reached the Super 4 stage after beating Afghanistan comprehensively in their group match. They then faced Pakistan in their first Super 4 game, which they ended up losing by seven wickets. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim registered fifties while batting first but a late collapse meant they could only post 193.
India, on the other hand, saw their first game against Pakistan washed out due to rain. They were troubled by the seam bowlers of Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi, with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli both falling to the left-arm seamer.
Their game against Nepal was curtailed by rain as well, but Rohit and Shubman Gill took the team over, ensuring India qualified for the Super Four as the second team of Group A.
