Bangladesh are all set to host Indian Cricket Team in a 3 Match ODI Series and 2 Test Matches. The ODI Series is not a part of the World Super League and would serve as a stepping stone for the next year’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
Bangladesh would be hoping for a quick turnaround as their recent defeat against Zimbabwe in ODI Series has raised question marks over the team’s dynamics. The Bangladeshi Tigers need to focus on basics rather than playing too aggressively.
Bangladesh Announce Squad for India ODI Series
BCB has made some tough calls as they dropped the speedster Shoriful Islam & the off-spinner Mossadek Hossain which is quite shocking. The duo has been an integral part of the team. The squad also sees the return of the star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
Tamim Iqbal (Captain), Liton Kumer Das, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali Chowdhury, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Ebadot Hossain Chowdhury, Nasum Ahmed, Mahmudullah Riyad, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Quazi Nurul Hasan Sohan
Great Chance For Bangladesh
The Bangladeshi Tigers should take a leaf out of the 2015 triumph where they won ODI Series against India in Bangladesh. The team needs to quickly rediscover their mojo as there is only a handful of ODIs remaining before the marquee ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 event. Skipper Tamim Iqbal will have to be spot-on with his selection as India has named a power-packed squad for the series.
Head Coach Rahul Dravid & Skipper Rohit Sharma would be aiming to find an ideal combination. The management would be hoping that the skipper Rohit Sharma hits form as the batter had a forgettable T20 World Cup 2022. The right-handed batter has a knack of scoring big runs. It won’t be wrong to say that Bangladesh has a strong chance to upset India. Apart from the ODI Series, India’s focus would be on Test Series as those 2 Tests are part of the World Test Championship(WTC) where India has to win the matches by a huge margin.
