India and Bangladesh gear up for Test series


The first Test of the two-match series between India and Bangladesh starts in Indore on Thursday (8:00 am UAE time).

Virat Kohli has returned to lead the home side after being rested for the recent Twenty20 International series.

Meanwhile, Mominul Haque is in charge of Bangladesh, in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan, who is currently serving a two-year ban for not reporting corrupt approaches.

India are high on confidence after completing a clean sweep over South Africa in their last Test series, while Bangladesh lost the one-off match against Afghanistan in their last outing in the longest format of the game.
