He was also in the last Test squad against South Africa in home series but didn’t get a chance to make Test debut. In the last Test series against South Africa, Rohit Sharma was given the place as an opener. He proved his worth in the longest format of cricket.
The team will also look forward to winning the Test match to gain the points in the World Test championship 2019-21. Notably, India has consecutively won 11 Test series at the home. It will be interesting to see that can India continue the winning race.
Will Bangladesh break the record?
In the T20I series against India, Bangladesh broke a record. They won the first T20I match against India and ended their long record to be in losing side. Winning a T20I match might have given them much-needed confidence but they didn’t win the T20I series.
Bangladesh has never won a Test match against India. This time they might also try to break this old record and be standing in winning side. Mominul Haque has been given the responsibility to led the team in Test series.

|Mayank Agarwal||Opening Batsman|
Bangladesh Predictable XI
India is a comparatively strong team than the visitors. India has much- experienced players than in Bangladesh team. The old records also depict that India has always been superior to tigers.
In Indore, India has a good history of winning the matches. India played the last Test match in Indore against New Zealand where they registered a comfortable win. This Bangladesh team is playing under the new captain and is missing their experienced players. So, it is expected that India will win the Test match.
