India enjoys a better record against their rivals in ICC tournaments. Virat Kohli's men have lost a single match in the ICC World Cups both ODIs and T20s.

Ahead of the tournament, India played two warm-up matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh and won both the matches convincingly.

As the titanic clash is in the corner, Indian players were seen practising hard.
