Bangladesh vs India: The first One-Day International (ODI) between Bangladesh Women and India Women will be played in Dhaka’s Shere Bangla National Stadium. The Indian side recently defeated Bangladesh in a T20I series, winning 2-1. As a result, Bangladesh would be eager to give it back, precisely as they did in the third T20I when Indian batters faltered terribly.
Unfortunately, due to the weather, Bangladesh has only played two complete games in their last six ODIs since December 2022. However, they were unable to win either game. They batted first against New Zealand in December 2022, posting a score of 180 for the loss of eight wickets on the turf, which greatly assisted batters. In response, New Zealand easily chased down the targets with only two wickets lost.
And in their most recent ODI, they crashed to 128 runs after losing all ten wickets in a low-scoring pursuit of 187. Their best recent performance has been in T20Is, which were played on the same track where Indian hitters were exposed, forfeiting eight wickets for 95 runs and nine wickets for 102 runs. As a result, they will attempt to shovel this hole wider.

India completely annihilated the English side in a three-match ODI series in September 2022. In this series, they will most likely bat with the same top six players. India has a well-established team and will use spin to gain an early lead in this series. Their main concern is resuming their batting form on this twirling track, and they will work hard to overcome this deficit.

The surface of Dhaka’s Shere Bangla National Stadium is spin friendly. Batters have struggled in the past, as evidenced by the average number of runs scored on this track.
Furthermore, the climatic circumstances favour bowlers, thus pacers will get some swing in the first few overs of the game. The team that wins the toss will almost certainly bowl to take delight in the wicket. The downpour is anticipated to occur between 30 and 50 per cent of the time during the game. Temperatures will hover around 30 degrees Celsius.
