The Indian Cricket team will be aiming a fresh start in the One Day International Circuit after their semi final exit in the World Cup, as they are now all set to lock horns against Bangladesh in the first ODI in June 18, 2015 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Bangladesh wins the toss and elected to bat first.
The squads are as below:
Bangladesh: Litton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan,Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, RA Jadeja, AM Rahane, SK Raina, R Ashwin, B Kumar, UT Yadav and Mohit Sharma.
The one and only Test match which was a part of India’s Bangladesh tour was washed out due to rain, and this ODI series is also under rain threat, as the monsoon in Bangladesh has started with full swing.
Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni is making his comeback and this is the major highlight of this ODI series. India consider this series as an important clash, and this is the main reason behind the inclusion of ODI specialists like Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the squad.
The team will be aiming to win the series 3-0, and this is quite essential to maintain their second spot in the ICC One-Day International rankings. Follow the Ind vs Ban live score here.
The match will be shown live in Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 3 in India and Bangladesh. Willow TV is showing the actions live for people in United States of America.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Cricket team is now in the path of revival, and they are not the same old minnows which we have seen in the first decade of the 21st century.
The Tigers recently white washed Pakistan and Zimbabwe, and this clearly indicates their form in this format of the game.
Consistent performers like Mashrafe Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal forms the spinal cord of the Bangladesh lineup.
