India and Bangladesh will play their first day & night test match on Thursday, 4th November 2019 at Holkar Cricket Stadium. It will be an interesting contest to witness as Kohli & Co take on Mahmudullah’s Men in the IND vs BAN 1st Test. After their defeat in the T20 series, it’ll be interesting to see how Bangladeshis will make their comeback in the test series. As India is currently ranked No 1 in the test rankings and Bangladesh is on Number 8 spot.
India’s tactic of using a completely young team in the T20 series turned out to be a very good move. As the young blood performed exceptionally well in the IND vs BAN T20 series. But for the Test Series, all experienced & senior players have been used including Mohammed Shami, Cheteshwar Puajra, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Wridhiman Saha, and Ishant Sharma. As Shakib Al Hasan has been banned from international cricket, Mominul Haque will lead Bangladesh in the 1st test.
India started the ICC World Test Championship on a High Note, as they are currently on the top of the point table.
