Team India were humbled 2-1 by a resurgent Bangladesh team in the three-match ODI series which the visitors managed to end on a high thanks to Ishan Kishan’s record double century. The Indian cricket team will now want to switch gears to prepare themselves for red-ball cricket as the first Test against Bangladesh gets underway in Chattogram on Wednesday (December 14).
Indian side will be led by KL Rahul with regular skipper Rohit Sharma ruled out after dislocating his thumb in the second ODI against Bangladesh last week. Shubman Gill is expected to take Rohit’s place at the top of the order alongside stand-in skipper Rahul.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be led by veteran all-rounder Shakib al Hasan with Tamim Iqbal missing both the ODI and the Test series with injury. The home side will have their task cut out against the world No. 2-ranked Test side India as they eye first-ever Test match win over them.
