Indian middle-order proved their worth in the game against Sri Lanka after none of the top three batsmen scored big during the run-chase. The Indian bowlers showed their character in restricting the opposition after getting thwacked early on. India will need their skipper to score few runs leading into the final. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will carry the confidence of defeating the hosts in a huge run-chase and hope to end their T20I jinx against India.
