Cricket Match Information:
India vs Bangladesh second test match is going to be played in the iconic cricket stadium of Eden Gardens, Kolkata from Friday. India is on the top of ICC World Test Championship by winning all the six matches so far, whereas Bangladesh is at the bottom and are struggling with their test team at the moment. It will be for the first time in history that Bangladesh will be playing more than one test in India. It is going to be a historic moment for both these teams as it will be the first time they will be playing with the pink ball as well as the first-ever day-night test match. Though the behaviour of the pink ball is still unknown in Indian conditions, our prediction expert reckons that the class of Indian team will let them prevail.
- Tournament: ICC World Test Championship

- Cricket match date: 22.11.2019
- Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
- Weather: Hazy sunshine, Temperature: 29 degrees, Thunderstorms: 0%
- Team A: India
- Team B: Bangladesh
- Team A Captain: Virat Kohli
- Team B Captain: Mominul Haque
Virat Kohli will be leading team India in their first test ever pink ball test match against Bangladesh. This test match will also be the first-ever of its kind that will be played under lights as a day-night test match in India. This is undoubtedly a moment of pride for him and the Indian team.
India are currently at the top of the points table of ICC World Test Championship with 300 points after six games of cricket. They are head and shoulders above the rest of the teams right now.
With a winning start, India will retain the same squad that played and won their last Test match against Bangladesh. Hence, our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last test cricket game barring any injury.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Rohit Sharma
- Mayank Agarwal
- Cheteshwar Pujara
- Virat Kohli
- Ajinkya Rahane
- Wriddhiman Saha
- Ravichandran Ashwin
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Mohammad Shami
- Umesh Yadav
- Ishant Sharma
Bangladesh are being led by young Mominul Haque in this test series. Their regular skipper, Shakib Al Hasan, has been banned by ICC for one year hence, the responsibility has fallen on Mominul Haque’s shoulders. However, that event has led to Mominul being the first Bangladeshi skipper to lead his team in a pink ball test match.
With poor performance in their last test cricket, Bangladesh now have a chance to showcase the talent again in this game. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Mustafizur Rahman in this game of cricket.
Here is our prediction of Bangladesh’s playing XI:
- Mushfiqur Rahim
- Liton Das
- Shadman Islam
- Mohammad Mithun
- Ebadat Hossain
- Mehidy Hasan
- Imrul Kayes
- Mustafizur Rahman
- Abu Javed
- Mominul Haque
Expert Prediction: IND vs BAN
There it is then. India have finally agreed to play in a pink ball test match. It could have come sooner had they agreed to play with it in Australia a year ago. However, they deemed this moment to be right and as a result, Eden Gardens, Kolkata will become the first-ever venue that will host India’s debut pink ball and day-night test.
Bangladesh will also be playing their first cricket test match ever with the pink ball. Mominul Haque, who was nowhere in the leadership scheme, finds himself as the first leader of his nation that will play the pink ball test match. It is going to be both exciting and nervy test match for both these teams as they will fray into the unknown. This cricket game will be played with SG pink ball and there have been mixed opinions about it on how it is going to react under lights.
Indian players have had a few net sessions with the pink ball in the last few days. A few players like Cheteshwar Pujara and Mohammad Shami have prior experience of playing with pink ball in domestic games and those experiences are going to prove handy. Our prediction is of an Indian win despite it being a new challenge for them. The gulf between the two sides looked wider in the first test match and despite it being their first test match with pink ball, it looks hard to look beyond India as the winner for this game.
Toss prediction? – Batting first in the test matches in India is a no-brainer. The first two days are ideal for batting and from thereon it becomes bowling-friendly. However, this being a first-ever day-night test match, teams might do otherwise. Our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bat first.

Top Batsman – Rohit Sharma (IND), Mushfiqur Rahim (BAN)
