Bangladesh Team News & Probable Playing XIs
Bangladesh hasn’t had any trouble adjusting to cricket’s longest format 22 years after its first Test match. This time, things became worse when Tamim Iqbal, their top run scorer, decided not to play in the opening Test. The innings will be started by Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Najmul Hossain Shanto. In the previous 10 exams, the pair’s average score was 22, on average. India may benefit from applying early pressure on the hosts.

India last faced England in a test match in the month of July. Without Rohit Sharma, Jaspreet Bumrah, and Mohammad Shami, KL Rahul’s team will have difficulty adapting to the 5-day schedule. Shubhman Gill will begin the first inning for him. Both have a pitiful amount of experience playing Bangladesh. Gill has participated in just one Test, compared to Rahul’s two this year.

India is the favourite to win this match.
There is a good likelihood that Bangladesh would view this as a fantastic opportunity to record their first Test victory over the visitors, given the rising injury list for India. India still has a very capable and seasoned team, and we believe they will be superior to the hosts. In Chattogram, we anticipate India will triumph.
