India vs Bangladesh 2022: Official ODI and Test Series Squad and Players List

Rohit Sharma to lead as we look at the official squad players list for the 2022 India vs Bangladesh ODI and Test series. 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday officially announced the Test and ODI series squad for the 2022 Bangladesh tour. Unlike the New Zealand tour which will have many senior players being rested, the Bangladesh series will see a near-to-full-strength squad for Team India.

The Bangladesh tour, which begins just after the New Zealand tour will see Rohit Sharma captaining the ODI as well as the Test side. As expected, KL Rahul shall be his deputy, who will take the duties from Shikhar Dhawan.

Team India will be playing a 3-match ODI series and a 2-match Test series starting December 4. While the ODI series shall be played from December 4 to December 10, the Test series shall be played from December 14 to December 26. 

Coming to the key changes in the ODI squad as compared to the ODI squad that was selected for the New Zeland, only Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Washington Sundar, Shaardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar are repeated. Rest 11 players are new ones. 

The reason to select a new squad could be that India wants to rest its key players just after the T20 World Cup 2022, and then try out new players in the ODI setup. Nevertheless, here’s the official squad and schedule for Team India for the 2022 ODI series vs New Zealand.

Coming to the Test squad, Team India will be playing almost a full-strength squad minus Jasprit Bumrah. However, India decided to go with an extra spinner in place of Hanuma Vihari, who seems to be dropped. The rest squad seems in line with the strengths. 

The Test series, which is a part of the World Test Championship is an important affair for Team India. If India don’t win 2-0, the final qualification, it would affect the qualification. Nevertheless, here’s the official squad and schedule for Team India for the Test series vs Bangladesh.
