Star Sports continues to provide live cricket streaming and scores for another cricket series that involves India. Hopefully the cricket fans enjoyed the IPL 2014 where KKR surprisingly clinched the title for the second time and proved their worth. Now it is time to move back to some international cricket. India has two back to back tours now. First they visit Bangladesh for a short ODI series which would be followed by a long tour to England. Please make a note, India vs Bangladesh 2014 live streaming will be available on Star Sports with English and Hindi commentary. High definition lovers can enjoy the live telecast of this series on Star Sports HD1 and HD2.
Getting back to the series, this was a recently planned series that was sneaked into the FTP between the IPL and the England tour. India has planned to send a depleted squad to Bangladesh as they are rightly providing some rest to the senior players like Dhoni, Ashwin and Kohli. The good news is a lot of youngsters will get an opportunity to play for the national side against Bangladesh. Few players who shined in IPL will try their luck in Bangladesh.
Here is the Indian squad to Bangladesh for your reference:
Suresh Raina will lead the team, the other players are Kedar Jadhav, Parvez Rasool, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ambati Rayudu, Stuart Binny, Amit Mishra, Akshar Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha, Manoj Tiwary, Mohit Sharma, Robin Uthappa, Umesh Yadav, Vinay Kumar.
A lot of young guns to prove their talent in the Indian side. On the other hand Bangladesh skipper seems unhappy with the Indian squad as he expected a full fledged opposition to play against them. He has shown some confidence against this depleted side and that throws a challenge to the stand by Indian captain Raina.
Kedar Jadhav from Maharashtra was the leading run scorer in this Ranji season. He gets a place in the squad. Akshar Patel was highly impressive with his spin bowling and some batting knocks when he played for Kings XI Punjab. Saha was impressive with his confident batting and comprehensive wicket keeping skills. He got a chance ahead of Dinesh Karthik. Players like Vinay Kumar, Tiwary, Rasool who have warmed the Indian bench in the past get another shot. It is good to see Uthappa back into the side after being the leading run scorer in the IPL 2014.
Overall India has a very comprehensive record against Bangladesh. Let us see if the home team can pull a rabbit out of the hat to win this series. Or will it be Indian team that will fly high with another successful tour to Bangladesh. Enjoy India vs Bangladesh live streaming on HotStar and Star Sports.
