India likely to go in with a three-pacer attack

On the eve of the Test match, Indian skipper Virat Kohli confirmed that Ishant Sharma will be returning to the side.

He missed out on the last Test against South Africa. It is also likely that India will play with three pacers in Indore. Rishabh Pant, who was busy during the team's practice session might still be left out in favour of Wriddhiman Saha.

Inexperienced Bangladesh look for a positive start to the ICC Test Championship

In the absence of Tamim Iqbal, Shadman Islam will have Imrul Kayes as his opening partner.

Newly-appointed skipper, Mominul Haque might decide to play it safe by adding an extra batsman in the line-up. Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam will be in the spin department while Abu Jayed and Ebadat Hossain will share the pace department.

The Indore pitch is still a mystery as far as red-ball cricket is concerned. Generally good batting wickets, the Indore turf might see some spin later on while assisting the pacers in the first few days. Rain is expected to stay away from during all the five days of the Test.
