The match will be played at Hamilton’s Seddon Park at 06:30 IST. India, runner-up at the 2017 World Cup, is in little conflict as they have lost consecutive games in a mega event.

So far, they have played five games in the competition – losing three and winning two so far.
On Saturday in Auckland, they lost their last game to the favorites for the Australian title by six goals. However, there were a few positives for them as half a century of Mithali Raj, Yastika Bhatia and Harmanpreet Kaur helped them hit 277/7 first. However, a solid contribution by Alyssa Healy’s baton, Rachael Haynes set the tone for the chase before the incomparable 79 coxswains Meg Lanning and Beth Mooney played their part in subduing the lively Indian side.
Meanwhile, the women from Bangladesh have played four matches in a row and are currently in seventh place in the table. The team led by Nigar Sultan showed a lively performance, despite being last in the standings. In their previous match, they were very close to defeating the West Indies Women on Friday. They were in the group for 136 and failed to chase 141. Their spinners Salma Khatun and Nahida Akhter were the choice of their bowlers, both ending up with identical 2/23 spells from their 10 overs. However, their hitters didn’t step up to get the team across the line, losing by just four rounds.
