Bangladesh vs India
Dhaka Test: Taijul draws first blood on day two against India
Taijul Islam was in fine form on day two of the Dhaka Test, claiming three wickets and putting India under pressure by making runs difficult to come by. India were at 19 for none at the end of day one. But they got off to a shaky start on day two in response to Bangladesh's first innings total of 227. At lunch of day two, India were batting at 83 for three, with Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant not out for 18 and 12, respectively.

Although he tried to defend a delivery of the left-arm spinner, the ball hit his front pad first. Bangladesh appealed for an lbw, but the umpire was not convinced. However, the review revealed that the ball was indeed heading for the stumps and Rahul had no choice but to walk off the field. Shubman Gill became the next prey of Taijul. The ball hit his pad and the appeal for an lbw was convincing enough for the umpire to declare him out. India lost both openers with only 38 runs on the board. But the third wicket partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat was going well. However, their stand was cut short as Mominul Haque took a sharp catch at the short fine leg, allowing Taijul to claim his third wicket in the match, dismissing Pujara.

Dhaka Test: Bangladesh opt to bat first with two changes vs India
Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first in the crucial second Test of the two-match series against India at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka. Bangladesh made two alterations to their playing XI, swapping out Yasir Ali and Ebadot Hossain for Mominul Haque and Taskin Ahmed. India omitted Kuldeep Yadav, who had a successful first Test, and brought in Jaydev Unadkat. This will be only his second Test since his debut in 2010, having missed an astonishing 118 Tests in between, which puts him second in the all-time list for most consecutive Tests missed between appearances.

Nasum Ahmed included in the Bangladesh squad for Dhaka Test vs India
Nasum Ahmed, the talented left-arm spinner, has been selected for the Bangladesh Test squad for the upcoming second and final Test of their series against India starting on December 22nd in Dhaka.

He has taken 105 wickets in First-class cricket at an average of 30.25, 32 wickets in T20I cricket at 20.03, 5 wickets in ODI cricket at 25.60, 80 wickets in List A cricket at 27.28 and 71 wickets in T20 cricket at 25.23.

Shakib played the last ODI and first Test in Chattogram with that pain.

Taskin uncertain for Bangladesh vs India 1st Test
Bangladeshi fast bowler Taskin Ahmed’s participation in the first Test of the two-match series against India — starting on December 14 in Chattogram — is uncertain. After being unavailable for the first two ODIs of the three-match series against India in Dhaka, he featured in the last ODI in Chattogram, suffering yet another injury that might hinder his performance and put his involvement in the upcoming Test in question. “I just returned from an injury,” Taskin said during a media interaction on Monday. “The team management is concerned about my fitness.” Read more: BAN vs IND Test Series 2022: Test Championship Scenarios, Squads, Fixtures, Venues, Head-to-Head Record Taskin has expressed uncertainty regarding his availability for the upcoming first Test of the series, citing his injury and lingering doubts about his fitness levels. In the last ODI of the series that Bangladesh ultimately lost by a large margin, Taskin conceded 89 runs in nine overs — it was the worst bowling figure he had ever recorded in the format. It was clear that the pacer was not at the peak of his form. The second and last Test of the series will be played in Dhaka.

Along with Rohit, the Indian team will also be without pace-bowler Mohammad Shami and allrounder Ravindra Jadeja for the first Test, although they may be available for the second Test in Dhaka. Both teams had engaged in a three-match ODI series ahead of the Test series that Bangladesh ultimately won by 2-1. This marked the second ODI series win for Bangladesh over India, with the first victory coming in 2015.
Mehidy, Fizz carry Bangladesh to nailbiting win over India
Bangladesh pulled off an incredible one-wicket victory over India in Mirpur on Sunday. The outcome was sealed by a remarkable 51-run partnership between Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman for the last wicket, propelling the hosts forward in the series. Despite a dismal batting performance that saw Bangladesh lose five wickets for eight runs in the span of 27 balls - from 128/4 to 136/9 -, a win was unexpected for the Tigers. But Mehidy and Mustafizur led the hosts to a memorable victory against the odds. Mehidy remained unbeaten with 38 runs off 39 balls, featuring four fours and two sixes. Mustafizur also remained not out after scoring 10 runs off 11 balls. In pursuit of 187, Bangladesh got off to a slow start as they lost four wickets within 95 runs. Liton Das top-scored among the top-order batters with 41 runs off 63 balls, while Najmul Hossain Shanto was dismissed off the first ball, prodding a Dipak Chahar delivery towards the first slip. Liton and Anamaul Haque Bijoy managed to steady the ship with a 26-run partnership before Anamul had a close call when the umpire overturned a lbw call after the third umpire determined the ball was missing the leg-stump.

Along with Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz is the second spinner for Bangladesh. Kuldeep Sen, a right-handed pacer, is making his debut for India. He has 25 wickets in 13 List-A matches so far. Bangladesh and India faced each other in 36 ODIs with India winning 30 of those and Bangladesh only five (one match ended with no result).

Bangladesh- India back to renew ODI rivalry
Bangladesh and India will be locking horns in the opening ODI of their three-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday at 12pm (Dhaka time). India is set to return for a bilateral series after a seven-year absence, with Bangladesh having emerged victorious in the last encounter in 2015. This eagerly anticipated showdown is expected to be fiercely competitive, with both sides gearing up to unleash their best efforts. The absence of Bangladesh's star opener Tamim Iqbal and pacer Taskin Ahmed due to injury will give an advantage to India, who also have to make do without the services of the well-rounded fast bowler Mohammad Shami. This weakens India's pace attack, but the presence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the batting line-up gives them an edge.

The right-hander had a stellar campaign last year, amassing 500 runs with an average of 62 in 10 matches, including a century and four half-centuries. He also has a century against India from the 2018 Asia Cup Final, making him the one to watch out for in the series opener. The expectations on Bangladesh's left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman will be high as he recorded two five-fors in his debut ODI series against India in 2015 that helped the Tigers secure their first ODI series win over India. Despite struggling in recent times, Mustafizur will be expected to deliver an impressive performance when cricket is back home in familiar conditions. For India, Rohit Sharma will be leading from the front. The right-handed batter has three centuries against Bangladesh, indicating his fine form against them. Speaking ahead of the series opener, India captain Rohit Sharma said, “I think it’s going to be an exciting series as always has been. Whenever we have come to Bangladesh, they are a very challenging team and we have to play well to beat them. It is a very simple equation for us.” Rohit also said that he believes the rivalry between India and Bangladesh has been exciting for the past few years. He noted that for the last seven to eight years, Bangladesh's cricket team has improved tremendously and it is not easy for India to win matches against them anymore and they have to play good cricket to be successful.
