Indian Cricket Team is due to play a 2-Test Match Series Against Bangladesh starting from 14th December. This Test Series is quite pivotal for India as they not only have to win the Series by 2-0 but win with a bigger margin. The Men in Blue are currently placed at the 4th position with a percentile of 52.08.
Bangladesh on the other hand who are out of the race would be keen to spoil the party of India. They are currently placed at the bottom of the table with a percentile of 13.33. Bangladeshi Tigers would be hoping to take a leaf out of the ODI triumph as defeating India in the Test Arena won’t be a tough task.
Abhimanyu Easwaran Called Up
There is uncertainty regarding Rohit Sharma’s participation in the Test Series. The skipper has gone back to Mumbai to consult with a BCCI specialist for his injured thumb. The right-handed batter is currently in Sylhet playing for India A against Bangladesh A. Easwaran has been told to join the national squad in Chattogram.
The batter has been scoring runs heavily as in his List A career of 78 matches, he has scored 3376 runs at an average of 46.2 where he has smashed 7 centuries and 21 half-centuries.
Fascinating Contest on Cards
The Men in Blue are a force to reckon with in Test Cricket. They not only have got a powerful team but a lot of match winners present in the team.
The management may play with 3 spinners as there are chances that the wicket would be spin friendly. Head Coach Rahul Dravid would be hoping that they don’t take Bangladesh lightly as an upset can’t be ruled out.
Bangladesh would be banking on the star all-rounder Shakib. The all-rounder knows how to fox the batters with his tricky variations. Bangladesh will have a strenuous task on their hands as India would be eyeing revenge for the ODI Series defeat.
