  • Bangladesh: Bangladesh has had a mixed bag in the Super Four stage. Their recent performance shows a loss against Sri Lanka but a commendable win against Afghanistan. However, they faced a setback with the absence of Mushfiqur Rahim, who will miss the game against India due to personal reasons.
