Indian squad for Bangladesh tour to be announced on Thursday: Schedule and fixtures
New Delhi : The BCCI will be announcing the Indian squad for a home series to be played in Bangladesh on Thursday, read a statement in a release. The selection committee will be holding a meeting in Mumbai to pick up the squad for a three-match T20I series followed by two Tests scheduled to be held between November 3rd and November 26th.
The announcement came hours after India crushed South Africa with a thumping 202 runs and an innings win in the third and the final match of the Test series, making it a clean sweep against them.
With that win, the hosts consolidated their top position in the ICC World Test Championship, adding another 40 points to their tally which now currently stands at 240.
On the other hand, Bangladesh cricketers have gone on a strike, raising doubts over the series against India. They players want the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to address their 11-point demands which include a 50 percent pay hike for first-class cricketers, expansion of national contracts, rise in match fees for domestic matches and improved benefits for the groundskeepers among others.
