India lost the one-day international series against Bangladesh. The team will look to avenge their loss and make an impression in the upcoming two-match Test series.
India will take on Bangladesh in the first test of the two-match test series Chattogram on December 14. The first test between India and Bangladesh will begin at 9 a.m. IST, at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
The series is part of the ICC World Test Championship, with India in fourth place and Bangladesh as low as ninth. The World Test Championship final will be held at Lord’s the following year.
India’s Playing XI
KL Rahul will lead in this Test match. Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul Shreyas Iyer, and Ravindra Jadeja are among the batsmen. Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, and Umesh Yadav will lead the bowling attack.
Bangladesh’s Playing XI
