Two teams that have proved to be compelling bowling units this T20I season are India and Bangladesh and they are all set to face off against each other on Saturday.

India has had a consecutive winning record throughout this season and they have the upper hand this time as well, as they have previously been winning against Bangladesh, in all formats. Following the defeat faced against Australia, will Bangladesh survive this tournament and moreover will they be successful in breaking the strong dominance India has placed this season?

Ahead of Saturday’s India vs Bangladesh contest in Antigua, here are a few things you need to know.

Pitch Report: This pitch is well known to serve spinners as well as seamers.
