Indian cricket fans are known for their obsessive love of the sport. Indore especially has a soft corner for cricket in its heart and the love knows no bounds. Hence the new that Indore will host the first match of India vs Bangladesh test series has us Indoris ecstatic.
The match will be held at Indore's International Cricket Stadium on November 14, hence the players of both teams have already reached the city.
What's the update?
Indore, it is time to be on your best behaviour once again because some of the best cricketers in the world are going to be in the city.
Indian as well as Bangladeshi players reached the city on November 11, to get a feel of the stadium and practice for the match ahead of them. At the airport, the international cricketers were met with fans who gushed over the cricketers and showered them with love and support.
The test match is the first in the series and it is a singular privilege that Indore gets to host it. There is a palpable tension for the match in Indore's air and it seems as though the entire city is gearing up for it.
India vs Bangladesh: Match Prediction
The home team looks to be rather confident with the support from fans and are currently in a really good form. The boys in white have been especially on a roll when we speak of the long format test matches. Kohli and his men are currently in the lead by 8 points when compared to other teams on the ICC board. The players are faced with several challenges ahead of them and are looking to secure a spot for the finals in the Championship.
As for the Bangladeshi side, they are a rather tumultuous sort. They have bested the Indians in the recent T-20 matches and are aiming to do the same. However, the planning and strategy required from their side still seems to be missing. At any rate, we can safely say that Indoris are in for a treat.
What are the players up to?
Many of the players are visiting Indore for the first time and a few were spotted by the paparazzi on the streets of Indore, checking out the local sights. In fact, Virat Kohli was seen playing Gully Cricket for what seems to be some sort of a promotional video.
The test match is scheduled to take place on 14th of November and we can't wait to cheer team India to victory. While the match is first in the series of many to come, it will play a major role in deciding the team's morale.
