India will go into the series on the back of a record 11-match winning streak in home Test series and were ruthless in their 3-0 annihilation of South Africa. On the other hand, Bangladesh will enter without their top player Shakib Al Hasan and also lost their previous Test back home.

Bangladesh will be playing three T20 Internationals in New Delhi (November 3), Rajkot (November 7) and Nagpur (November 10) and two Tests in Indore (November 14-18) and Kolkata (November 22-26), which will host the first-ever day-night pink-ball Test between the two nations.
