Team India has opted for a full-strength squad led by Rohit Sharma and featuring the likes of Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli as they take on Bangla Tigers, who are a strong opponent in their home conditions. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohi will be seen together for the first time in a Test match in Bangladesh.
Mohamedali Budhwani, CMD, Toyam Sports Ltd. (TSL) said, “We at Toyam Sports Limited (TSL) are extremely proud to come in as the Title Sponsor of the India versus Bangladesh ODI series.
