India vs Bangladesh is the 40th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, coming hot on the heels of India's last game against England. In the match today, India will want to bounce back after suffering their first defeat of the tournament on Sunday and seal their semifinals spot. Bangladesh too still have a chance of progressing to the next stage of the World Cup, if they win both their games, and other results in the tournament go their way. Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to bat first in the India vs Bangladesh World Cup cricket match. India have made two changes for the match, with Kuldeep Yadav sitting out in favour of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while Dinesh Karthik will take the place of Kedar Jadhav in India's XI.
