Best Possible India Test Squad for Bangladesh 2024 Tour

India’s Test squad for the upcoming series against Bangladesh likely boasts a formidable lineup across all departments. Led by Rohit Sharma, the batting unit includes stalwarts like Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Sarfaraz Khan, providing depth and experience. Behind the stumps, the team will rely on the dynamic duo of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant, who also reinforces the batting prowess as a wicket-keeper. There’s a big possibility that Dhruv Jurel could also be retained for his spirit and determination in the last two test matches against England.

Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Axar Patel strengthen their all-around capabilities, offering both batting stability and bowling options. India could feature the pace trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mukesh Kumar, and Mohammed Siraj in the bowling department. Kuldeep Yadav adds further depth in the spin arsenal. This well-rounded squad sets the stage for an exciting contest against Bangladesh, aiming to secure crucial points in the ICC World Test Championship.

ICC World Test Championship 2025 Final Scenarios

India holds the top spot in the ICC World Test Championship Rankings and will look to keep it as they take on Bangladesh. Team India is on a four-fight winning streak in Tests, all against England, who languishes at the bottom of the standings. After Bangladesh, India will play three Test matches against New Zealand, followed by five against Australia, which is second in the standings. India is almost sure to play in the finals, but any setbacks against Bangladesh might damper those plans, particularly as they have to tour Australia later this year.
