After a pulsating T20I series which saw India beat Bangladesh, the two nations square off in the first of two Tests, starting 14th November in Indore. Although India rested a few players in the T20Is, Virat Kohli and Mohammad Shami are back for the Indians, who look to maintain a perfect record in the Test format this year.
On the other hand, Bangladesh did give a good account of themselves in the shortest format and even managed a win against India. In spite of the aforementioned, they will be regarded as the underdogs with their big guns, Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan not available for this Test series.

India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test
14th November 2019, 9:30 AM IST
Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore.
Only one Test has been played at the Holkar Cricket Stadium with India winning the match comfortably. Generally, the pitch does favour the spinners which could see either side play three spinners.
While it should be a good surface to bat on, spinners will come into play from Day 3, which increases the importance of the toss. The weather is perfect for Test match cricket with no rain on the cards at all.
