India is set to assess their bench strength as they face off against Bangladesh in their final Super 4 match at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today at 3 pm.

Shreyas Iyer, who was sidelined in the last few matches due to a back spasm, is poised to make a comeback. Suryakumar Yadav, yet to find his footing in ODI, will also be in contention for a spot. Mohammed Shami is expected to replace Mohammed Siraj in the dead-rubber.

India have stamped their authority in the tournament with dominating wins against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. They will face co-host Sri Lanka in the final on Sunday.

For Bangladesh, this tournament has been a forgettable one under the leadership of Shakib Al Hasan. They have been plagued by injuries and struggled with poor form throughout.

Bangladesh will be without the services of Mushfiqur Rahim against India, who is taking time off to be with his family.

Heading into the World Cup, a victory today for Bangladesh could prove to be morale boosting.

Squads:
India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur, Prasidh Krishna, Tilak Varma

Bangladesh: Mohammad Naim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Litton Das (wk), Shakib Al Hasan (c), Towhid Hridoy, Shamim Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Mahedi Hasan, Anamul Haque, Afif Hossain, Tanzid Hasan, Tanzim Hasan Sakib
