Confirming Rohit’s ouster from India’s squad for the 1st Test against hosts Bangladesh on Sunday, the apex cricket board of India has also revealed that senior pacer Mohammed Shami and veteran all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja are ruled out of the entire red-ball series. Navdeep Saini and Saurabh Kumar have replaced Shami and Jadeja. Meanwhile, Abhimanyu Easwaran has been named as the replacement for injured Indian skipper Rohit for the first Test against Bangladesh.

The uncapped Bengal opener captained India A for the team’s two-match red-ball series against Bangladesh A. The latest addition to the Indian Test side registered noteworthy scores of 141 and 157 in his two innings. Easwaran was named the Player of the Match for his stellar knock of 157 against Bangladesh A. Easwaran was also a part of India’s Test squad for the England tour in 2021.

Indian vice-captain KL Rahul will lead the visitors in the series opener against Bangladesh. Opener Rahul made his Test captaincy debut against South Africa in Johannesburg earlier this year. The premier batter had scored a sublime half-century on his Test captaincy debut for the Asian giants. However, Rohit-led India was outplayed by the Proteas in the Johannesburg Test match.
