India vs Bangladesh: IND Playing 11 vs BAN, 2nd Test.  India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Match will be played from 22 to 26 December 2022 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Bangladesh. Prior to the Test Series, both the teams squared off against each other in the three-match ODI series, which was won by the hosts Bangladesh by 2-1.

Team India registered a comprehensive 188-run win against Bangladesh in the first Test of the series at Chattogram. With just one more Test remaining, the visitors would be looking to end their tour with a whitewash and earn some valuable World Test Championship points.

It took the visitors only 11.2 overs on the final morning of the Chattogram Test to pick up the last four Bangladesh wickets and take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Their 188-run win and South Africa’s six-wicket loss to Australia shortly afterward meant the visitors are now second on the World Test Championship points table. They have another five Tests in this cycle, and if they win four of those, they will guarantee themselves another appearance in the final.

1st Test:- India 404 (Pujara 90, Iyer 86, Miraz 4-112, Taijul 4-133) and 258 for 2 dec (Gill 110, Pujara 102*) beat Bangladesh 150 (Mushfiqur 28, Kuldeep 5-40) and 324 (Zakir 100, Shakib 84, Axar 4-77) by 188 runs

India had a near-perfect Test where they ticked almost all the boxes. On the batting front, Cheteshwar Pujara had scores of 90 and 102* while opener Shubman Gill smashed his maiden Test ton. Shreyas Iyer scored a fine 86 in the first innings and Ravichandran Ashwin showed his value with the bat once again with a gutsy 58 down the order. His partnership of 92 runs for the 8th wicket with Kuldeep Yadav (40) turned the match in the visitors’ favor completely.

India were clinical with their bowling led by Kuldeep Yadav who made a terrific return to the Test team by picking up 8 wickets in the Test. The chinaman spin bowler’s 5-40 in the first innings broke the back of Bangladesh. Axar Patel was also impressive, taking 4-73 in the second innings when the wicket had eased out considerably. Fast bowler Mohammed Siraj bowled with a lot of heart and his spell of 3-20 in the first innings was one of the highlights of the match.

Rohit Sharma’s thumb injury hasn’t recovered sufficiently for him to be available for India’s second Test against Bangladesh, as the BCCI confirmed on Tuesday that the skipper will continue to sit out, along with fast bowler Navdeep Saini.

Left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat is also likely to be given a chance in place of Umesh Yadav. KL Rahul will continue as the Indian skipper.

Senior Indian batter, KL Rahul made his Test debut for India in the Boxing-day Test match in Melbourne against Australia in 2014. Since then, he has delivered some excellent knocks with the bat for India in the longest format of the game. He averages around 35 after playing 44 Tests.

KL Rahul will continue as skipper after Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the 2nd Test. KL Rahul led India to a 188-run win in his first Test win as skipper in his 2nd Test as skipper where he scored 22 and 23 against Bangladesh.
