Confident India has taken on Bangladesh in the second semi-final of the ongoing Champions Trophy here at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham today.
India has started today’s game as strong favourites as they had finished the group stage at the top of Pool-B with wins over arch-rivals Pakistan and South Africa.
However, they will still be wary of Bangladesh, who had entered the last-4 stage on the back of an upset win over New Zealand and had finished second in Group-A.
As far as the conditions are concerned, the rains that blighted the first week of the tournament have receded and the forecast is for sunny skies for today.
