After thumping South Africa at home, team India will await its next challenger which comes in the form of Bangladesh. The two teams will be squaring off in a 3-match T20I series which will be followed by a two-match Test series which will commence from November 14th.
The first of the three T20Is will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi followed by the clashes at Rajkot and Nagpur. The Indian selectors have rested skipper Virat Kohli for this series which means Rohit Sharma will be donning the skipper's hat. The agenda here is to try as many youngsters as the team can which will also clear their mindset of what will be the proposition of the team in the next year's T20 World Cup.
On the other hand, Bangladesh were hit by a big blow ahead of the series when all-rounder Shakib-al-Hasan was imposed a ban for two years by the ICC. Another all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the side in his absence in the T20Is. What beholds for a Shakib-less Bangladesh. Can the visitors make a winning start to their tour? We will have to wait and watch until tomorrow.
