India have decided to rest their regular skipper, Virat Kohli, from the T20 cricket series. In his absence, Rohit Sharma is going to be the skipper. Kohli is going to lead the side in the Test series.
India drew the T20 series in their game against South Africa played in India a few weeks back. Prior to that, they had defeated West Indies in West Indies. India have decided to bring some fresh blood into their T20 squad, keeping in mind two World T20 championships in the next two years. The likes of Shivam Dubey and Sanju Samson have been brought into the squad and are expected to play a part in the series.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of three pacers in the playing eleven. Yuzvendra Chahal should make a comeback into the eleven as well.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Rohit Sharma
- Shikhar Dhawan
- Rishabh Pant
- Shreyas Iyer
- Manish Pandey
- Krunal Pandya
- Washington Sundar
- Deepak Chahar
- Shardul Thakur
- Yuzvendra Chahal

Bangladesh cricket has been rocked by a scandal just before this tour. Their premier all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, has been banned from cricket due to the non-reporting of fixing approach from bookie.
Bangladesh have named their experienced player, Mahmudullah, as the skipper for this T20 series. It is never easy to replace the team’s star player and it becomes even more difficult when it happens to be under these circumstances.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of one left arm spinner in Taijul Islam to compensate for Shakib in the bowling lineup.
Here is our prediction of Bangladesh’s playing XI:
- Mushfiqur Rahim
- Liton Das
- Saumya Sarkar
- Mosaddek Hossain
- Mohammad Mithun
- Mustafizur Rahman
- Taijul Islam
- Al-Amin Hossain
- Mohammad Naim
- Arafat Sunny
Expert Prediction: IND vs BAN
Nobody expected this series to begin in so much limelight. Granted a Bangladeshi side has never been on these shores to play a T20 cricket series ever, but just looking at the way India decided to rest Virat Kohli from this series should give you how intense they thought this series was going to be.
However, this series has now got proper attention. One, due to the extreme conditions of Delhi, under which players are going to play on Sunday. The air condition has gone well below what is deemed as healthy in Delhi and a lot of attention has gone towards the scheduling of games in that part of the world. Secondly, Bangladesh have been the centre of attention in cricket world in the past few weeks. Their players decided to go on strike just days before the tour to fulfil their demands and then once that was sorted, the news related to Shakib broke out.
From a cricketing point of view, Rohit Sharma and Mahmudullah now have the responsibility of leading the sides. Both sides have some fine young talents along with a nice mix of experienced players. It is going to be exciting to see how the series pans out as Bangladesh are no longer the pushovers and they have challenged India in recent years. The conditions should suit Bangladesh as well and their spinners will be in the game for the entire span of the match. They say adversity brings the best out of certain individuals; Bangladesh certainly need a few of those individuals to stand up and deliver.
Toss prediction? – Delhi’s pitch has always been a mystery in recent years. The local side, Delhi Capitals, struggled to perform at their home ground earlier this year. With pitch behavior likely to be a factor, the team winning the toss should choose to bowl first.
