India vs Bangladesh Test Match 2017 Live Streaming on HotStar

Preview - India vs Bangladesh 2017 Test Match

England's long tour to India concludes with all success to India. Cricket fans enjoyed limited overs matches and now its time for the original form of cricket. India plays a test match against Bangladesh at Hyderabad before they face Australia for another long test series. Riding high on success, India are certainly favourites against minnows Bangladesh. 

India vs Bangladesh Live Cricket Streaming on HotStar
Live cricket streaming of India vs Bangladesh test match will be available on HotStar. Star Sports will provide live telecast on TV with live English and Hindi commentary.

Team Squads:
Indian squad:-
Virat Kohli (capt), Murali Vijay, Umesh Yadav, Jayant Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Karun Nair, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Abhinav Mukund and Hardik Pandya.

Bangladesh squad:-
Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Taskin Ahmed, Subashis Roy, Taijul Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Liton Das (wk), Mominul Haque, Shafiul Islam and Mosaddek Hossain.

This is a battle of unequals where Bangladesh is still finding feet in test arena. Especially against India they have never won a test match. Out of the eight matches, they have lost seven. They managed to draw the last match they played against India.

The only thing that goes in their favour is their good performances back home in limited overs against various teams. Although test match is completely a different ball game, they can carry forward some confidence from limited version of the game to test cricket.

Rahane is set to return. Kohli and Kumble have taken a tough decision of resting Nair who scored a triple ton against England. They had to give Rahane an opportunity who was out due to injury. Bangladesh will face a daunting task of bowling out the strong Indian batting line up. At the same time they have an uphill task of countering Ashwin and Jadeja.

Don't forget, the India vs Bangladesh match live streaming begins from 9.30am IST. And a bigger series follows. India vs Australia live streaming will also be available on HotStar and Star Sports from 23rd February.

India vs England 2016 Test Series Live Streaming HotStar Information

India vs England 2016 Test Series Preview

Surely you all would have watched the exciting advertisements on Star Sports. Virat Kohli and his men are gearing up to take a revenge against the England team. India faced defeats in last three test series against England. The advertisement this time suits right to the situation. The claim seems valid that India has an upper hand with such a strong track record in last couple of years. India has clinched test series wins against the likes of Sri Lanka, West Indies, South Africa and New Zealand. They have climbed up the ladder and reached the top of the ICC Test Rankings. On the other hand England is not the same team that toured to India in 2012-13. England would surely have a tough time around in India this time.

Team Form Guide

India has won their last three test matches while England has lost the latest one against Bangladesh. Before that they won one and lost one.

Captain's Inputs

Virat Kohli is pretty clear with the way forward. He said the team is not here to just compete but to win. His team has seen a lot of success since the time they toured to Sri lanka last year. Since then they haven't lost a series. Infact the series loss against England in 2012-13 is India's last defeat on the home soil.


The Spin Challenge

The biggest challenge for England would be the spin trio of India - Ashwin, Misra and Jadeja. These three have created repeated havoc in the opposition party. Sans Cook and Root, the other England batsmen may face a lot of difficulty playing against these three spinners.
