India vs Bangladesh on November 22


India’s opening Test against Bangladesh at the Holkar Stadium in Indore turned out to be a one-sided affair as the hosts won by an innings and 130 runs. It’s now time for the day-night affair at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The game under the lights have been the point of the tour with both teams, yet to play a game of such nature.Bangladesh will look to register their first points on the points table of the ICC World Test Championship.The visitors were bulldozed by an innings and 130 runs in the opening Test at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Mominul Haque and Co will have to perform much better in the upcoming match if they wish to salvage something out of the tour. The performances of Mushfiqur Rahim and Abu Jayed were the only bright spots for Team Bangladesh in the first match, as the Indian team outplayed them in all three departments. However, they will try to forget their previous performance and look to make history in Kolkata by winning their first ever Test against India.

Best economical pick – Fast forward a year later, and Mayank Agarwal is making headlines again with his stupendous show against Bangladesh. In the first Test the opener scored a stunning 243, his second Test double hundred of the year, to follow up a splendid 215 against South Africa last month. Agarwal has forged a formidable opening partnership alongside Rohit Sharma at the top of the order, and it looks like the pair is likely to stay together for a long time.

Top captains & vice captains – This will be India's last Test before their New Zealand tour, and captain Virat Kohli will try to get some runs under his belt ahead of the overseas assignment. The Delhi-born superstar scored a rare duck at the Holkar Stadium but given how talented he is, we can expect him to bounce back in style at Eden Gardens. Kohli has been practicing with the pink ball in the nets. Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh's most experienced player, waged a lone battle against the hosts in his side's ICC World Test Championship opener. Rahim emerged as the top scorer in both the innings, with scores of 43 and 64. The wicketkeeper-batsman was batting magnificently in the first innings before a classic in-swinger from Mohammed Shami rattled his stumps.

Smart pick – Mohammed Shami has formed a fantastic partnership with his teammates Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav, as the trio have been regularly decimating opposition batting line-ups even in home Tests. While Ishant and Yadav will be significant factors at Kolkata, all eyes will be on Shami because he has played a lot of cricket at this venue.

Cautions Pick – Whether it is his stroke selection or his untidy wicket-keeping skills, Wridhiman Saha is under considerable pressure and with Pant in the squad, this could be a crucial game for the Bengal glovesman.


My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Mushfiqur Rahim(Vice-Captain), Mohammed Shami, Mayank Agarwal, Ajinkya Rahane, Abu Jayed, Umesh Yadav, Ravichadran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Mithun, Imrul Kayes
