IND vs BAN: 3 Indian Players Who Didn’t Deserve A Spot In India Squad For Bangladesh Test. India will travel to Bangladesh after playing against Kiwis at home in 3 T20Is and as many ODIs for a three-match ODI series followed by a two-match Test series. The three ODIs will be played on December 4, 7, and 10. All the matches will be played in Mirpur.
The series then moves on to the Test series with the first test in Chattogram between December 14-18. Both teams return to Mirpur again for the last and final Test between December 22-26.
India and Bangladesh have played against each other in 11 Tests, 36 ODIs, and 11 T20Is. The Tigers have never beaten India in a Test match. In ODIs, the Men in Blue have won 30 matches while the Tigers have just five games. One of those wins was in the 2007 ODI World Cup which back then was a big upset.
In 11 T20Is, Bangladesh have just won one game which was back in their 2019 tour in the first T20I in Delhi. Thus the Men in Blue have dominated Bangladesh well and truly across formats and the trend is expected to continue in the upcoming series.

KL Rahul had a torrid time in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2022. Although he had successful England and South Africa Test tours, his confidence will be low after his poor performance in the T20 World Cup 2022.
He should’ve been rested or axed and the likes of uncapped Sarfaraz Khan should’ve been tried in his place against Bangladesh in Tests. KL Rahul managed only 128 runs in 6 T20Is in T20 World Cup 2022 averaging only 21.33. He registered 4 single-digit scores after hitting the fifties in two games against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
