India suffered their first loss of the World Cup 2019 as they fell 31 runs short of England’s total on Sunday in Birmingham. At the same venue, India will take on Bangladesh to seal their berth in the semi-final. India most probably sure of their top four finish but a win can avoid any miracles. Bangladesh, on the other hand, has won three out of seven matches. They need to win both their remaining games and also expect England to lose against New Zealand as their NRR is quite less compared to other sides.

All the major stats and numbers ahead of the game between Bangladesh and India:

4 – India won each of their last four ODI matches against Bangladesh. The Bangla team defeated India on five instances in ODIs but only once outside Dhaka – in Port of Spain during the 2007 World Cup. The 2007 CWC game was the first meeting between the two sides in the World Cup but India won the next two meetings by 87 and 109 runs respectively.

81.75 – Virat Kohli has a bowling average of 81.75 in ODIs against Bangladesh; his best average in this format against any team. Kohli scored 654 runs in 11 ODI innings against them with three centuries and three fifties. However, since 2015, the Indian skipper scored only 148 runs in five innings at 37 average with a fifty against Bangladesh after averaging 126.5 until 2014.

96.6 – Rohit Sharma is averaging 96.6 in the ODI format against Bangladesh since the start of 2015. He scored 483 runs from seven ODI innings in this span with two centuries and two fifties. However, until 2014, Rohit averaged a lowly 14.6 as he scored 73 runs in five innings with the best score of 26.

154.5Virat Kohli has a batting average of 154.5 having scored 309 runs from six ODI innings. The dismissal against England was the first for Kohli in four ODI innings at this venue after scoring 244 runs. Kohli has three fifties here; all in the previous three outings.

279 – Mashrafe Mortaza has a bowling average of 279 in this World Cup. The Bangladesh skipper bowled 44 overs in six matches and conceded 279 runs but picked up only one wicket.

343Rohit Sharma’s 343 runs in the ODI format at Edgbaston is the joint-most by any player. Rohit scored 343 runs in five innings at an average of 85.75 at this venue with two centuries and two fifties including an unbeaten ton against Bangladesh in 2017 CT semis. Andrew Strauss also scored 343 ODI runs at this ground.

476 – Shakib Al Hasan has scored 476 runs alongside picking up ten wickets in this World Cup. No player before Shakib has taken 10+ wickets and scored over 400 runs in a single edition of CWC.

There are three instances of players scoring 500+ runs and 10+ wickets in all ODI tournaments but if Shakib scores 24 more runs, he will be the first to do this double prior to the knockout stage.

969 – Virat Kohli needs 31 more runs to become the 3rd Indian to aggregate 1000 runs in World Cup. Sachin Tendulkar (2278) and Sourav Ganguly (1006) have achieved this feat thus far.
