Bangladesh had an incredible home series against Pakistan lately. Not only did they whitewash the visitors for the first time in the 3-match One-Day International (ODI) series, but also clinched the one-off Twenty20 International. Moreover, they also put up a solid performance with the bat in the first of the 2-match Test series that eventually ended in a draw, before letting off the hook in the second encounter.

The Pakistan series done and dusted, Bangladesh now gear up to host 2-time World Champions, India. The two teams are scheduled to cross the swords in a one-off Test match, followed by 3 ODIs.

However, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza seems acquainted with the obliteration that their neighbouring country possess in the sport.

“Actually India is stronger than Pakistan regarding their batting line – up and spin department. Indian spinners are in superb form which is evident in Indian Premier League,” a precautious Mortaza was quoted as per saying by the official Bangladesh Cricket Board website.

He continued: “We will go through a bigger challenge. We could face it well if we can rectify our mistakes in the last completed series. It is not really possible to correct all these things within a month but we can try at least.”

The tour is scheduled to run from June 10-24, with Fatullah and Dhaka being the only two venues for the one-off Test and ODIs respectively.
