Rohit Sharma will lead India in the three ODIs vs Bangladesh starting on December 4 (Sunday) in Dhaka. The fact that Bangladesh plays at home makes this team even stronger. Yes, Tamim Iqbal will miss and Litton Das will take his place, but Bangladesh is still a strong side with a great team that often does well in their own backyard. Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mustafizur Rahman are some of the major names in the Bangladesh lineup. Another great player they will miss is Taskid Ahmed who was outstanding in the T20 World Cup.

India, on the other hand, will miss the services of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. Bumrah was already out with a stress fracture, while Shami was ruled out a day before the match due to a shoulder injury. Umran Malik has been roped in to replace Shami in the 15-man squad. Very surprisingly, Yuzvendra Chahal is also not included in the selection. He didn’t play in the T20 World Cup at all and most New Zealand matches were faded. There’s no point in not giving Chahal a continuous run when the squad knows he hasn’t been getting too much work lately.
