Fair to say India’s batting has let them in both ODIs so far. The two batting stalwarts Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli have failed to get going. Barring Shreyas Iyer, no batter has shown consistency. Worst, apart from Rohit Sharma, India won’t have the services of Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar. The two pacers are out due to back stiffness and hamstring trouble respectively.

During the Toss, Rahul remarked, “Injuries are not great and we’ve had a few of them. But it also gives opportunities to new guys. Two changes obviously: Rohit and Deepak are injured. So Ishan Kishan and Kuldeep come in. We’ve always had the quality as a team. Right now it’s important for us to get better as individuals and get runs in different conditions.”

“Haven’t played one-day cricket for a long, long time. The focus was on T20 cricket. We always want to win and give our best for the country. But sometimes it doesn’t happen. There’s never an international game that doesn’t have pressure. It’s a new wicket – different conditions. Important for us to assess, be brave, and put the pressure back on them. That’s what Indian cricket has done over the years” Kl Rahul Added.

Here’s How Twitter Reacted To Ishan Kishan’s selection In The Playing XI vs Bangladesh:

The Indian team in Bangladesh has been beset by injuries, with several players, including captain Rohit Sharma, joining the list. It is unclear whether the captain has been completely ruled out of the series.

Rohit, who received a ‘blow on his thumb’ during the second ODI in Dhaka on December 7, is expected to be available for the second Test (December 22-26). KL Rahul will captain the team in the first Test (December 14-18).
