Raina will lead the young TEAM INDIA in Bangladesh.
Suresh Raina will lead India in the three – ODI series in Bangladesh. It is the best possible comeback for him. He was dropped from the team for Asia Cup. MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami are rested. Robin Uthappa earned his comeback after the success in IPL. Wriddhiman Saha was called up as a replacement of Dhoni as the wicketkeeper. He performed quite well in the IPL and domestic cricket. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
Varun Aaron, Stuart Binny, Amit Mishra, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Ambati Rayudu are retained from the Asia Cup squad. Many regular players are resting. This was an ideal opportunity for the youngsters. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
Kedar Jadhav from Maharashtra got in. He was the top scorer of Ranji trophy this season with 1223 runs. Left-arm spinner Akshar Patel also got in. He was impressive for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL. R Vinay Kumar also got selected. He led Karnataka and South Zone to three domestic trophies. Manoj Tiwary came back too. Parvez Rasool got another chance. He traveled to Zimbabwe last year. Mohit Sharma also gets a chance. IPL success worked for him. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
Raina’s previous experience of captaincy came in a tri – series in Zimbabwe. India failed to make the final of that tournament. They lost to Sri Lanka and the hosts. He also led Team India in a five – ODI series. India won that series in the West Indies. Raina’s batting and shot selection was poor at that time. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
Uthappa and Saha have the most worthy comebacks. Uthappa last played for Team India in March 2012. He had a decent first-class season this year. He also had a splendid IPL. He scored 40 or more in 10 consecutive innings. This is possibly a world record. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
Saha is known for his keeping skills more than his batting. He has been frequently warmed the bench in Test cricket. This IPL have put him ahead of Dinesh Karthik. Karthik kept wicket in Dhoni’s absence in the Asia Cup. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
I still feel this team should have been different. Selectors should have gone for Sanju Samson, Karan Sharma, Karun nair, Manish Pandey and Manan Vohra. These players were outstanding in this IPL season. Cheteshwar Pujara, Manoj Tiwary, Parvez Rasool & Stuart Binny, all were out of form. These players should have been dropped out. live cricket streaming bangladesh vs india.
