India vs. Bangladesh Highlights of the day. First Test of the India tour of Bangladesh, Wednesday, December 14, 2022, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram.
Toss: India, elected to bat first.
KL Rahul: Looks like a good wicket and we’ll put runs on the board and use the footmarks later on to get wickets. There have been a few injuries but that gives an opportunity to the other guys. We’re playing Kuldeep among three spinners (Ashwin and Axar), and two medium pacers Umesh and Siraj.
Shakib Al Hasan: We would have batted first too but we’ll try to get some early wickets. It’s a little difficult, we’re playing a Test after a big gap of five months but we’ve prepared well. We’re playing two seamers, three spinners, and seven batsmen.
Bangladesh team: 1 Najmul Hossain Shanto, 2 Zakir Hasan, 3 Yasir Ali, 4 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 5 Mushfiqur Rahim, 6 Litton Das, 7 Nurul Hasan (wk), 8 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 9 Taijul Islam, 10 Khaled Ahmed, 11 Ebadot Hossain.
