India Vs Bangladesh 2019/20: Second Test – India’s Predicted XI

Indian cricketers are getting ready to play the historic day/night pink-ball Test match against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens (Kolkata). It will be the second and final Test of this series that will begin on 22nd November. This match will run from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM local time. It will be the first-ever day/night Test match for the both teams.

At present, the Indian team is leading the Test series by 1-0. The hosts India dominated the first Test of this series at Indore as they won that match by an innings and 130 runs. While a draw will be enough for India to win this series, the hosts are surely looking to win this game too.

Before this historic last Test of this series, here we are with the predicted XI of the Indian national cricket team.

New Test opener Rohit Sharma has struggled to perform consistently in this ongoing Bangladesh tour of India. Apart from scoring 85 runs in one T20I, the Bangladesh bowlers have been successful to dismiss him one-digit score. However, in recent times, the right-handed batsman doesn’t stay in poor form for a long time.

Mayank Agarwal

India, Mayank Agarwal

While most of the Indian top-order batsmen failed to score big runs in the last Test, Mayank Agarwal stayed very calm and hit a superb double-century. His 243 runs knock was the second-best knock by an Indian batsman against Bangladesh in a Test innings.

The off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is in very good form at present. It will be interesting to see how he utilises the pink ball in this day-night Test match.

Ishant Sharma

With growing up experiences, the tall Indian pacer Ishant Sharma is becoming more dangerous with the ball. At present, he is very consistent in his rhythm. Also, he guides the other pacer by sharing his experiences.

Umesh Yadav

India, Windies

Since his return to the Test team, Umesh Yadav has impressed with his consistent line and length. The 32-year-old is picking up wickets consistently and it is making him more dangerous bowler.

Mohammed Shami

India Vs Bangladesh 2019/20: Second Test - India's Predicted XI 3

The world cricket is praising Mohammed Shami. Many believe that Shami is one of the best seam bowlers at present. His excellent reverse-swing bowling skills brings more important variety in Indian pace bowling. In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Shami is now a big asset in this Indian bowling line-up.

Kuldeep Yadav

Virat Kohli-led India may make one change in the Test squad as they may give an opportunity to the young left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. After playing six Tests, he has taken 24 wickets. During Duleep Trophy 2019/20, which was the day/night pink ball first-class game, Kuldeep Yadav was the most wicket-taker as he bagged 17 wickets in three matches.
