IND vs BAN 1st Test 2022: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

India will next take on Bangladesh in the Test series. The first game will happen in Chittagong. Here, we look at the pitch report of Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium and the weather conditions in Chattogram for IND vs BAN 2022.

The men in blue will be without the services of Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul will lead the squad in his absence. The likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will also not play against Bangladesh.

India will be under pressure to win the game. In the remaining 6 Tests before the World Test Championship final, India has to win at least five games. While the four-match series against Australia will be challenging, India has to, therefore, whitewash Bangladesh. For that to happen, India has to put on a strong batting display. The likes of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant have to step up. In the bowling department, R Ashwin will lead the spin attack while Mohammed Siraj and Umesh Yadav will be a part of the pace unit.
