IND vs BAN LIVE Score: IND BAN 2nd Test LIVE – Bangladesh Batting FIRST: Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan have opened the batting cautiously for hosts at the greeny pitch of Shere Bangla National Stadium. Bangladesh have won the toss and opted to bat first. Jaydev Unadkat is the only one change for India in the second Test. The left-arm pacer has been given a chance after 12 years in the Test team. Kuldeep Yadav misses despite winning the player of the match award in the first Test. But Team India have still enough firepower to shoot down struggling Bangla tigers. India’s ultimate target is to qualify for the WTC Finals. India are currently 2nd on WTC Points Table. But a lot of things need to go India’s way. Winning the Test series in Bangladesh is one of them. Sony Sports Network will have IND vs BAN LIVE Broadcast from 9 AM.

India Playing XI 2nd Test: No Rohit Sharma, India’s batting order set to go UNCHANGED, selection headache in bowling options

The upcoming home series against Australia will be decisive in India’s bid for a second straight WTC final. But they also can’t afford any slip-ups against Bangladesh, who showed plenty of fight in the first Test.

With regular skipper Rohit Sharma yet to recover from his thumb injury, no changes are expected in the Indian playing eleven. The first Test presented a golden opportunity for the likes of Shubman Gill and Kuldeep Yadav. They made it count. Had Rohit been fit for the game, it would have been extremely difficult to drop Gill following his maiden Test hundred. However, that situation did not arise and Gill will be keen to cash in on another opportunity.

Rahul too would look to lead from the front after the disappointment of his two innings in the first Test. Like Chattogram, the pitch is expected to be slow and decent for batting, providing Rahul an ideal platform to get runs before the Australia series. It would be fair to say that Cheteshwar Pujara has consolidated his No 3 position with a 90 and an unusually attacking 102.

Bangladesh too will be confident of their chances. Rookie opener Zakir Hasan has shown he belongs at this level. Senior batters including Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim will be aiming to learn from their mistakes and make big hundreds. Skipper Shakib Al Hasan did not bowl in the second innings due to an injury and that is why Bangladesh have added left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed to the squad. Nasum is likely to make his Test debut on Thursday. Former captain Mominul Haque too could get a game.
