After a tighly contest T20I series, India and Bangladesh move to play the longest version of the game with the first match set to be played at Indore beginning from 14th November. While the second test, which is to be played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, is drawing all the attention as it is a day-night fixture, the first featuring India, the series opener is of massive importance as well. With Shakib al Hasan no longer available, Bangladesh will be playing under the leadership of Mominul Haque. Virat Kohli will return for India along with the other test stalwarts. While India are a stronger unit on paper, Bangladesh certainly aren't the ones to be taken lightly. Exciting cricket is certainly on the cards over the next few days.
No team in past eight years has been as dominant as India while playing at home. India have lost just one test match at home under the leadership of Virat Kohli and have been in rampaging mood in all other matches. India's mood in red ball cricket was apparent in the last series wherein they defeated Proteas 3-0.
Although the absence of Jasprit Bumrah would be a relief for the visitors, Indian bowling attack is by no means a lesser unit without him. Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami, and Umesh Yadav did incredibly well against the Proteas and the trio will be difficult to deal with for the Bangladeshi batsmen as well. Alongside a lethal pace attack, Indians have the luxury of two world-class spinners, who both can bat as well.
Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have been fabulous for India over the last few overs and playing them in the second innings has been challenging, to say the least, even for the best in the business. Jadeja has grown leaps and bounds as far as batting is concerned. This was evident by the fact that India dropped Hanuma Vihari in the last two tests against South Africa and promoted Jadeja up the order.
With Rohit Sharma performing brilliantly as an opener, there is hardly anything India has to worry about going into the upcoming series. They have experienced batsmen in Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, and Virat Kohli to follow the openers, who will not be easy to get past for the Bangladesh's bowling unit.

Bangladesh started their campaing in India pretty well, but they lost their way with back to back losses. Going by the statements of their players, the still have a lot of self-belief and will go in all guns blazing in the opening test.
Over the years, Bangladesh haven't been a force in the longest version of the game as they have been in the limited overs cricket. Additionaly, they have fared a lot better while playing at home as compared to while playing overseas. Having said that, the conditions in Indore will be as close to Bangladesh's as they can get anywhere in the world.
Bangladeshi batsmen were seen practicing religiously in the net sessions, which were supervised by Neil McKenzie. On paper, Bangladesh have a strong batting unit, albeit not as strong as they'd have liked with Shakib Al Hasan. However, lack of options with pace bowling could be a cause of concern for the visitors as picking up twenty wickets against the potent Indian batting attack would take a colossal effort.

Unless the weather is overcast and the surface is green, it is a general notion to bat first after winning the toss. In the subcontinent conditions, the decision to bat first rarely goes wrong primarily due to warm weather and dry wickets. With Indore's surface likely to be a paradise for the batsmen on the first two days, the captain winning the toss is expected to bat first.

The surface at Indore is known for its fast outfield and even carry through to the keeper. We are likely to see good assistance for the fast bowlers, at least when the ball is new and hard. Batting is certainly going to get easier thereafter. The weather is expected to stay warm on all five days and there is very low possibility of rain. Spinners will come into the picture should the test goes into the fourth and fifth days.

The T20I leg of this tour turned out to be a lot closer than expected. While India gained the control back in the last two matches of the series, their vulnerabilites were well and truly on display in the opening game. In the test series, however, India are going in with their full strength squad and the visitors will have to play out of their skins to challenge this Indian unit. Considering India's terrific record at home, their strong team on-paper, and their performances in the recent matches, they are firm favorites to win the opening game and take the lead in this two-match series.
