The Indian pacer Mohammad Shami won’t feature for India in this three-game ODI series against Bangladesh starting from 4th October, Sunday. This news was out just before the first ODI.

The first ODI between India and Bangladesh will be played on 4th December at 11:30 PM (IST) in Sher-e-Bangla cricket stadium, Dhaka.
