India vs Bangladesh 1st Test Dream11 Prediction: After a successful T20I series for the hosts, all attention diverts to the longest format of the game as team India prepare to take on Bangladesh in the first of the two-match Test series set to begin on Thursday in Indore at the Holkar Cricket Stadium. Following consecutive test series triumphs over West Indies and South Africa, India sits atop the World Test Championship standings and looks invincible at the moment.
On the other hand, the Tigers suffered a defeat at the hands of Afghanistan on home turf and a plethora of off-field issues have acted as an impediment in their preparation for this tour. Without a shadow of a doubt, the Blues start this game as overwhelming favorites whilst the tourists are capable of pulling a rabbit out of the bag but will need to conjure a miracle to stop this dominant Indian side from completing yet another victory.
India vs Bangladesh 1st Test Dream11 Prediction: Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Team, Pitch Report and Weather Conditions
India vs Bangladesh
14th November 2019
9:30 AM IST
Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore
Partly Cloudy conditions with few chances of rain and temperature ranging around 20 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
It will be a decent-enough batting track and will provide plenty of assistance to the bowlers, especially the spinners, who will come into their own as the game progresses.
Shakib Al Hasan won’t play a part due to his suspension whilst Tamim Iqbal misses out due to personal reasons.
Probable Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma made a sizzling start to life as a Test opener and alongside Mayank Agarwal provides the side a stable foundation at the top whereas Cheteshwar Pujara, skipper Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane occupy the middle-order positions. The pacers stole the spotlight in the series against the Proteas with an exhilarating exhibition of fast-bowling and will have their tails up coming into this game.
Imrul Kayes will partner Shadman Islam at the top in the absence of Tamim Iqbal and should look to make the most of this opportunity. The likes of Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahmudullah will have to raise their performances with the willow in hand considering the feeble nature of their batting unit and the intimidating potency of the Indian bowling attack. The returning Mustafizur Rahman and the spin duo of Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam are the key personnel in the bowling department.
Top Picks for IND vs BAN Dream11 Team:
Rohit Sharma scored a double hundred and plundered two more tons in the test series against South Africa. He is a mandatory pick in the Dream11 Team and should be named as the captain or the vice-captain in the side. The Indian skipper needs no introduction or any specific reasoning behind his inclusion in the team. But just to convince you, if you still need any convincing, he smashed an unbeaten 254 in the second game of the same series and the serial run-machine is guaranteed to garner plenty of points for your side. Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja are other must-haves in the fantasy side. As for Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim is a guaranteed pick whilst Mahmudullah and Liton Das could also prove to be smart additions to the Dream11 side.
