The Men in Blue won three matches on the trot against Ireland, Pakistan and the USA before the fixture against Canada was washed out due to rain in the group stage.

Is there reserve day for India vs Bangladesh Super 8?

Despite it being a crucial stage of the T20 World Cup, there is no reserve day for the India vs Bangladesh Super 8 match. This applies not only to this match but to all the Super 8 matches. If a match is washed out without a ball being bowled or is called off due to rain, the two teams will share a point.

At the end of the Super 8 stage, if two or more teams are tied on equal points, then the team with a better Net Run Rate (NRR) compared to other team will secure the top two finish in the respective group and qualify for the semifinals.

The reserve day will only come to place if the semifinals and the Final are affected by the rain or bad weather.
