India team to reach Bangladesh tomorrow
DHAKA, Nov 30, 2022 (BSS)-A full strength Indian team will reach Bangladesh tomorrow (Thursday) for a first bilateral series in Bangladesh since 2015.
The India side, a close neighbour of Bangladesh is scheduled to play three ODIs and two Tests over the month. Both squads will be led by Rohit Sharma.
India named a strong team for both the formats of the cricket but notably, Jasprit Bumrah - currently recovering from a back injury - has not been included in either team. Prithvi Shaw doesn't find a place either.
In the last bilateral series in 2015, India lost their first ever ODI series to Bangladesh by 2-1. The solitary Test between the two teams was drawn. India held the edge before rain washed out the game.
A Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official informed that the India team will land here at 6.40 PM. They will do their first practice here at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Their tour will start with ODI series with the first match on November 4 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. The second match will also be held at the same venue on November 7 before the two teams play their final ODI at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on November 10.
Chattogram will also host the first Test, slated for November 14-18. The two teams will then travel back to Dhaka for series-ending Test from November 22-26.
India will return to their country on November 27.
