Bangladesh tour of India, 2019: Virat Kohli rested, Rohit Sharma named T20I captain, Shivam Dube called a maiden

Team India is ready for another home series. After South Africa, India's tour of neighboring rival Bangladesh is going to start from November 3. Team India was announced on Thursday. In Mumbai, the Indian selection committee announced a 15-member squad for three T20 and two-Test matches series.

Many young players have got a place in the team for the series starting on November 3. One player in this is Mumbai all-rounder Shivam Dubey, who has been named in the team after the injury of Hardik Pandya. He is also seen as a replacement for Vijay Shankar.

Mumbai's young batsman Shivam Dubey recently caught everyone's attention with his strong performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Shivam Dubey has scored 177 runs in 8 matches at an average of 88.50 while playing for Mumbai in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

India's squad for T20I series against Bangladesh: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Washington Sundar, Krunal Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, Deepak Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed, Shivam Dube, Shardul Thakur

India's squad for Test series against Bangladesh: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Saha (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant

Kohli was given a break keeping his workload in mind. Captaining in all three formats and being the premier batsman of the side, Kohli is an ideal candidate for burnout. He was expected to skip the T20 matches in West Indies after the World Cup, but he played. This time he has paid to heed the advice of the support staff monitoring the workload of the players.
