On the other hand, Virat Kohli’s team may look at this series as a great preparation in the lead up to the series against Australia, not that they have not played lots of Test cricket already with a five-match series against England not long ago.
Bangladesh’s best chance will be to win the toss and bat, else India will make it very difficult for them with the spinners coming into play as early as Day 2.
Here is a look at the expected XIs from both squads-
India: Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Karun Nair, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (captain & wicketkeeper), Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed and Kamrul Islam Rabbi
