Bangladesh vs India Team Preview
After a not-so-impressing run in the World T20 Cup, the Bangladesh team will look forward to switching gears and going toe-to-toe against the Men in Blue. Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman L. Das will be leading the squad in the first ODI. Veterans like S. Hasan and M. Rahman will also help their team to register a win against India.
India is fresh off from New Zealand. While most of the matches of that tour were washed off, the Indian team showed small cracks in their batting lineup. R. Sharma is appointed as the Indian skipper for the series, while V. Kohli is joining the team along with other players. Young express pacer U. Malik has also been added to the squad after an impressive performance against the Kiwis.
