India will play a three-match T20I series and two-match test series against Bangladesh at home. The series will start from November 03 with the first T20I. Virat Kohli takes rest from the T20I series so Rohit Sharma will lead the team. Former Indian player VVS Laxman said that this is the best opportunity for team Bangladesh to beat India and he also said that the series will be 2-1 in favour of India.
“It will be a tough series for the home team since Bangladesh are travelling with a strong side, but I feel the series will be 2-1 in favour of India,” VVS Laxman said while speaking at the Game Plan show on Star Sports.
“Also with the form Rohit and KL Rahul are in right now, with (Shikhar) Dhawan looking at establishing himself, I am backing the Indian batting power to win the series,” he added.
“This is the best opportunity for team Bangladesh to beat India in their home soil since they have depth in their batting line-up,” he said.
“However, on their bowling department pressure will be more on Mustafizur (Rahim) to deliver since the fast-bowling line-up looks inexperienced compared to their spin bowler in the team. Mustafizur would need to play key-role in picking-up early wickets with the new ball since Virat is not there in the side and team India seems to be little inexperienced in the middle order.”
“There is a lot of inexperience in this bowling line up so I hope Yuzvendra Chahal plays all three matches. I think it’s a great opportunity for other young players like Krunal Pandya to win matches and bowl those tough overs to emerge victoriously,” he concluded.
