In today’s blog we talk about the upcoming test series between India and Bangladesh.After the end of t20i series its time for the longer format series.It ll be a 2 match test series and unlike the t20i series here the Indian Team has gone for a full strength side.T20i series was more about experimenting keeping the t20 world cup in mind but then test series gets even more important because of the World Test Championship.
As said Team India is going in with a full strength side,We ll see the likes of Virat Kohli, Mayank Agarwal,Cheteshwar Pujara,Ajinkya Rahane,Ravindra Jadeja etc again.It ll be important to see if the bowling department will continue with its good form or not. Eyes will once again be ok openers, skipper and vice captain.As they form the core of the Team.It ll be interesting to see if young Shubman Gill will get chance or not.But then in place of whom is the big question.
Well eyes will be on our bowlers like Shami,Ishant, Umesh,Ashwin and Jadeja.Bangladesh are entering this series after a t20i series loss.They will miss services of Shakib and Tamim.They have a new captain in form of Mominul Haque and eyes will be on players like Mehedi Hassan, Mushfiqar Rahim, Mustafizur Rehman etc who have played before in India and have done well too.It ll be interesting to see how the new captain leads the side.
Other than this not much to speak about the series,might turn into a one sided series with India in the driver seat but then it’s cricket and anything is possible.2nd test match to be played in Kolkata will be a pink ball test which is a Day Night test match.This series is getting all the attention because of this pink ball test which is happening for the first time in India and is the first day/night test match for both the sides.
It’ll be interesting to see how much of crowd will gather,how the pink ball will behave, How players react to it, What new things we can see etc.Hence its an historical test series for both the teams.No 1 ranked team vs No 9 ranked team.Sounds less interesting but its not like how it sounds.Bangladesh has always troubled India and they will come all guns blazing with nothing to loose.
