BAN vs IND – 1st ODI – Team Previews
When it comes to international cricket, the year 2022 has not been good for Bangladesh but when it comes to any series at their home ground, Bangladesh has surprised everyone with their performance. Team India will definitely face healthy competition from the hosts.
Even before the beginning of the series, Bangladesh received a major blow as their skipper Tamim Iqbal won’t be available for the whole series because of an injury. In his absence, Mushfiqur Rahim or Shakib Al Hasan are expected to lead the team. Litton Das will be the man to look out for as he is in great form and can give a tough time to the visitors.
Another major blow to Bangladesh cricket is that their primary pacer Taskin Ahmed will be unavailable for the 1st ODI because of his back injury. The whole responsibility of the pace attack is now on Musftafizur Rahman. In 11 ODIs in 2022, Rahman has picked up 12 wickets at an economy of 4.35.
After sending their secondary team for the New Zealand tour, team India will be welcoming the senior players back into playing XI. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul will be available to play against the hosts. However, Jasprit Bumrah is still facing injury time and won’t be participating in the whole series.
When it comes to the ODI format, the senior players like Rohit and Virat have not played bigger roles for the team. They would like to start the series on a positive note with the help of Shikhar Dhawan who is a great form. KL Rahul’s recent performance is a major point of concern and his inability to score is becoming a pain for the whole team.
India’s finest ODI batsman right now is Shreyas Iyer, who is in incredible form. With 1 century and 5 half-centuries in 11 ODIs in 2022, the right-hander has scored 566 runs at an average of 62.88.
Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar, Axar Patel, and Washington Sundar will be responsible for the bowling attack. Sundar proved his worth as an allrounder against New Zealand and would like to continue the momentum.
