IND vs BAN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He didn’t play in the last encounter but the Indian setup could be looking to use this encounter as one to recall Rishabh Pat back into the test cricket setup and give the player chance to regain much needed confidence. He’s capable of scoring runs against a lacklustre opposition and will be our choice for this docket of our Dream 11 setup.
IND vs BAN Dream11 Batsmen
Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma ended up faltering in the first encounter in what were rare failures for the duo but the two hardly fail in two successive clashes. And on such an iconic occasion, both will step out hungry for runs, looking to dole out electric displays and set a statement to see us opt for the partnership from the home side.
Mayank Aggarwal joins them after garnering the 243 runs in the opening slot in the first innings of the last encounter as he cut short Bangladesh’s bowling efforts as he opt for all the batting picks from the hosts for this one.
IND vs BAN Dream11 All-Rounders
Jadeja might have gone wicketless in the previous match but with the 60 runs in his kitty with the bat, the player is more than deserving of a spot in our Dream 11 side. His role with the bat as well as more than ample overs to send down his enticing and ominous brand of spin make him the ideal all-rounder for this contest to see us make him the first choice for this clash.
Scoring 38 runs in the second innings as well as getting the one wicket with the ball sees us make Mehidy Hasan Miraz the first choice from Bangladesh alongside Mahmudullah.
IND vs BAN Dream11 Bowling Order
While the two wickets apiece in each innings of the first test match were more than enough to pint us towards Umesh Yadav’s pick for this encounter, his escalated role as a bat further saw him hammer down a spot in our Dream 11 unit. Across the last two test matches he’s played in, the player has been asked to go out and express himself freely with the bat, something which has seen him win us over with his 6s seeing him get 25 in 10 balls the last time around.
The seven wickets in the previous match as he took 4 in the second innings to guide India towards a sweeping win see us get in Mohammed Shami as the second quick from the Indian contingent while from Bangladesh we have the two bowlers come in as well. Abu Jayed got four wickets in the last encounter to see us move in for him along with Taijul Islam
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to make Kohli our side’s captain for this encounter while Rohit will be the vice-captain.
