Bangladesh Tour of India 2019-20 Schedule, Teams and Stats

Bangladesh Tour of India 2019 T20 & Test Schedule, Squad, Stats & Fixtures

Bangladesh will be touring India soon with the three-match T20I series slated to commence from the 3rd of November, 2019. Ahead of this crucial tour for Bangladesh, the selection committee, spearheaded by MSK Prasad, rested captain Virat Kohli for the T20Is, keeping his heavy workload in mind. Rohit Sharma will be captaining the team in the 3-match T20I tournament. Sharma is otherwise the Indian vice-captain in the limited overs format. Kohli will return for the two-match Test Series against Bangladesh that is scheduled to start from 14th November, 2019.

26-year old Shivam Dube from Mumbai has been selected in the international team for the very first time for the T20Is. He will be the replacement for all-rounder Hardik Pandya who is still recovering after undergoing his back surgery. Dube has already debuted in the first class and List A formats in the year 2017. He was chosen ahead of Vijay Shankar as the second-choice team all-rounder since he is known to be a big-hitter. MSK Prasad, the Chairman of the selection committee, stated that previously the team had Hardik Pandya and then experimented with Vijay Shankar. He added that the entire selection committee was in agreement that Dube was a suitable pick for this role.

Prasad added that Dube’s USP is his aggressive batting style and good performance in West Indies for the India A side and also in the ODI games versus South Africa. Sanju Samson, the skilled wicket-keeper batsman, has found a place in the T20Is as a back-up wicket-keeping choice after Rishabh Pant who has retained his position as the first-choice pick.

Yuzvendra Chahal, the leg-spinner, makes a comeback into the T20I team and pacer Shardul Thakur from Mumbai also finds a place in the squad. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been rested by the selection committee while fitness issues led to the omission of Navdeep Saini as per reports. MSK Prasad also stated that Bhuvneshwar Kumar may return from his injury-forced absence in the coming series versus the West Indies. He also talked of how Shardul Thakur was selected since Navdeep Saini was not available for selection.

The Indian team remains the same for the two-match Test series versus Bangladesh. The 15 players featuring in the test matches versus South Africa will play against the Bangladesh side. Shahbaz Nadeem, the left-arm spinner, who scalped four wickets on his debut versus South Africa in Tests, was not taken into account for selection. He was not in the original team for the South African series and was drafted in as a replacement for the game in Ranchi once Kuldeep Yadav got injured.
