India vs Bangladesh Kolkata test: Pink is the new red
India, Bangladesh to make their day-night Test debut today at Eden Gardens. It took India a new BCCI regime under maverick former captain Sourav Ganguly to take the pink ball plunge, a good seven years after the International Cricket Council approved the format to revive interest in Tests. Ganguly convinced the Bangladesh Cricket Board to agree to a Day/Night Test.

India-Bangladesh test series: India look to stay at the top
The hosts start as favourites to pick up 120 points from the two games against Bangladesh; the first Test starts in Indore on Thursday. Kohli returns to lead the side that recently won their record 11th straight series at home. Rohit Sharma has been on hot form, hitting two centuries and a double ton in his debut series as opener against South Africa.
Rohit Sharma, the indefatigable run chaser

Rishabh Pant’s mental strength will be key as he deals with a rough patch — and realises sports is as much about failure as success. For motivation, he has to only look at Kohli & Rohit.

Chahar's hat-trick hands India T20 series win over Bangladesh
Earlier in the day, India reached a promising total of 174 helped by half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer and K L Rahul. It was a maiden T20 half-century for Iyer (62 off 33) and the sixth one for Rahul (52 off 35). Iyer's entertaining knock came after he was dropped on 0.
Show intent at the top
India, while batting first at least, has approached the T20 game much like the way they approach the 50-over format. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are champions of the 50-over contest and have time to up the tempo after settling in. They have done that time and again in the last few years.

Can India afford to have three slow-starters at the top?
If one of Kohli, Sharma or Dhawan gets set, they will either drag the game deep or finish it off. If two of them bat well, India will surely win the game. However, India’s T20 strategy needs to evolve keeping in mind the bigger grounds in Australia where power-hitting will be at a premium at the T20 World Cup next year.
India look to try more combinations to prepare for the T20 World Cup
It is an interesting time for Kohli to miss out. One, it allows him an iota of rest in what is going to be a hectic schedule stretching into autumn of 2020. Two, and more importantly, it will allow him to watch this side from the outside.
