After a long break, the Indian cricket team and Bangladesh’s team are prepared to play ODI series. India will play three one-day internationals against Bangladesh while on a brief tour there. The Indian cricket team has already begun training there and will take on Bangladesh in the opening ODI on Sunday, December 4.

Before the toss for the first one-day international (ODI) between India and Bangladesh, the officials of BCCI confirmed that Rishabh Pant has been released from the ODI squad. Axar Patel was not available for selection for the first ODI too.

Kuldeep Sen is set to debut in the first ODI against Bangladesh. With Shami ruled out, and Shardul Thakur struggling for form, Sen got the fortunate opportunity to play his first game in the presence of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, and other senior members as well. Sen received his cap from skipper Rohit Sharma.

“Some injures and few issues, we got four all-rounders playing. Washington, Shardul, Shabaz, Deepak Chahar. Kuldeep Sen is making his debut. Myself, Shikhar and Virat up the order. KL Rahul will keep wickets. We hardly played many games in New Zealand, but we fought well. Some of the guys batted really well. World Cup is still far away, we don’t want to look too far ahead. We want to focus on what we have in hand and play accordingly,” said skipper Rohit Sharma during the toss.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Sen
