India vs Bangladesh 1st Test Live Streaming - Star Sports and HotStar


Return of test cricket! Sigh of relief. It is always fun to watch the real test in cricket which is well known as 'test cricket'. However successful the limited over versions of cricket may happen, the test cricket has its own legacy. India tours to Bangladesh for a bilateral series that has a test match scheduled at Fatullah followed by three ODIs to be played at Dhaka. Let us preview the first test match that will be played between India and Bangladesh at Khan Saheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. Live streaming and telecast of the first test will be available on Star Sports HD network in India with live Hindi and English commentary. If you want to enjoy live cricket match streaming on mobile, HotStar app is the right source for you.

Full strength squad: India has declared a full strength squad for Bangladesh test series which also includes return of Harbhajan Singh. Considering spin friendly conditions in Bangladesh, Harbhajan Singh can come in handy with ball as well as bat. He has played some match winning cameos in the recently concluded IPL 2015 tournament.

India Test squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), R Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Karn Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaaron and Ishant Sharma.
Bangladesh Test squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain and wicketkeeper), Shuvagata Hom Chowdhury, Litton Das, Taijul Islam, Jubair Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Abul Hasan and Mohammad Shahid.

Bangladesh in good form: Bangladesh have had a golden run in recent past and hence Indian think tank seemed to be in no mood to take them lightly. Even the ODI series will feature a full strength Indian squad led by MS Dhoni. Virat Kohli will lead the test team after Dhoni's retirement from test cricket. Bangladesh cricket team reached the quarter finals of ICC World Cup 2015. They lost to India in the quarters and were eliminated. On their way to the quarter finals, they had some remarkable wins. They also had a glorious ODI series against Pakistan recently where they won the series 3-0! So that certainly would be an alarming situation for Indian team and hence they took no chance whatsoever in selecting their best available cricketers.

India vs Bangladesh test cricket history: India played their first ever test match against Bangladesh in the year 2000 at Dhaka. Batting first Bangladesh managed 400 runs with Aminul Islam smashing 145! Sunil Joshi from India took five wickets. In return India managed 429 runs. Sunil Joshi scored 92 runs while Ganguly scored 84. Naimur Rahman took six wickets. Second innings of Bangladesh was bundled in 91 runs only. India chased down the small target losing just one wicket. Sunil Joshi was declared Man of the Match.

Since then India has played total seven test matches against Bangladesh. India won six out of them while one in 2007 ended in a draw. Notably these two teams have never played a test match in India. Hopefully we would see a test series between these two teams in India.

Let us hope we get some exciting test cricket with lot of youngsters involved this time. Indian cricket team would see a new life under the leadership of Virat Kohli and hopefully the team soars newer heights.

Meanwhile another tour for India has been declared. India vs Zimbabwe series will begin soon after the conclusion of Bangladesh tour. Watch India vs Zimbabwe 2015 live streaming on Ten Sports HD and HotStar mobile app.
