Probable Playing XI


In spite of resting a number of first-choice players, India is still a formidable unit with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan opening the batting for them. While KL Rahul is expected to bat at number three, the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant assume the roles of floaters depending on the situation. Shivam Dube should be handed a debut with Krunal Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar forming a fearsome spin trio. Deepak Chahar’s spell with the new ball will be one to watch out for.

Bangladesh’s fortunes depend on Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyad, who captains the side as well. Soumya Sarkar and Liton Das should open the batting for them with Mohammad Mithun also expected to feature. The duo of Mosaddek Hossain Saikat and Afif Hossain provide the balance in the side. With Mohammad Saifuddin unavailable, the onus falls on Mustafizur Rahman to deliver against the Indians.

Top Picks:

Rohit Sharma’s record as a captain is exemplary with the Mumbaikar scoring a hundred as well. He is a must have in the side along with Krunal Pandya, who is a consistent performer for the Indian side. Rishabh Pant and Mushfiqur Rahim are picked as the wicket-keeper options for this game while the mercurial, Soumya Sarkar should also be backed to score some runs at the top of the order. Afif Hossain, who had a good showing in the tri-series against Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, is also a worth-while option while the trio of Mustafizur Rahman, Yuzvendra Chahal and Deepak Chahar comprise the bowling department of the fantasy team for this game.
