Historical context

This marks India’s second tour of Bangladesh in as many years and their third overall. In the previous tour in 2023, India participated in three T20Is and three ODIs. While India clinched the T20I series with a 2-1 victory, the ODI series ended in a 1-1 draw.

However, the tour was marred by controversy, with India captain Harmanpreet Kaur expressing dissatisfaction with umpiring decisions after the final ODI. Vice-captain Smriti Mandhana also emphasized the need for neutral umpires for subsequent tours.
