India's spin department looked very ominous in the warm-up match against Bangladesh. The spin twins Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal spun Bangladesh out of the game despite a solid partnership between Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das.
They both took 3 wickets each and demolished the middle-order of Bangladesh. Bangladesh was bowled out for 264 runs and India won the match by 95 runs. India's massively improved spin department forced the critics to prophesize India as the World Cup champions.
