India v Bangladesh hasn’t quite achieved the right to be called a ‘rivalry’ yet, but there has been a fair bit of needle in games played between the two teams in recent years. When the two go head-to-head in the second Champions Trophy 2017 semifinal at Edgbaston on Thursday (June 15), it will be with India, the No. 3-ranked side in the world, to be the runaway favourites, but Bangladesh, ranked No. 6, are certainly not going to give up without a fight, as they have shown so consistently in the recent past.
