The first ODI between India and Bangladesh will take place on the 4th of December at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. India’s regular captain Rohit Sharma is back in the squad to handle the captaincy duty for the team while Litton Das will lead the Bangladesh side.
Team India are coming after having a not-so-good ODI series against New Zealand where they started with a defeat. While the second game was abandoned due to rain, they failed to do well in the third one which eventually washed out as well.
However, over the years, these two teams have faced each other in 36 games, with India registering wins 30 times and Bangladesh winning on 5 occasions as well. With such a brilliant track record, the upcoming series is going to be an interesting affair.

The pitch at the Shere Bangla National Stadium is a neutral wicket which helps both the batters and the bowlers. While the batters will get the help, spinners also get the help in the middle overs as well.
Predicted Playing XI
India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (WK), Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami
Bangladesh: Anamul Haque, Litton Das (C), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Hasan Mahmud, Ebadot Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
A high-profile clash awaits as both teams will try to start with a win. However, Team India are a different side in the bilateral series and expect them to come out on top at the end of this game as well. Betway has also placed its odds in favour of India at 3.75.
