Team India will hold an optional practice session on Sunday as they gear up for the upcoming Test series. Ravichandran Ashwin joined up with the squad in Chattogram and has begun training solo for the series. Cheteshwar Pujara and KS Bharat are also expected to begin practice on Sunday. The duo played the second unofficial Test against Bangladesh A in Sylhet.

However, the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and others will take a rest having played the 3rd ODI on Saturday. Meanwhile, Umesh Yadav however should hit the nets alongside replacements Saurabh Kumar and Abhimanyu Easwaran. Jaydev Unadkat is called up to the Test squad but is yet to travel to Bangladesh.

Shubman Gill who did not feature in the ODIs is expected to partner KL Rahul at the top of the order. Rishabh Pant was released from the ODI squad but is part of the Test team. However, it is unclear whether the left-hander reported back to the camp. The 25-year-old is a crucial cog in India’s Test set-up and will keep wickets if fit. Bharat is back up and has already acclimatized to conditions in Bangladesh. KL Rahul is also an emergency option.

It is an important series for Team India, with their hopes of a WTC final appearance hanging in the balance. India need to win all of their remaining six games to stand a chance to play the summit clash at the Oval. After the ODI series loss, the Men in Blue cannot afford any more slip-ups on this tour.

India Test Squad: KL Rahul (C), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara (VC), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), KS Bharat (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Navdeep Saini, Saurabh Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat
