Team India’s tour of Bangladesh begins this Sunday with the ODIs. The tour consists of a 3-match ODI series and 2 Tests. Dhaka’s Shere Bangla Stadium will be hosting the first two ODIs and the last one will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. In this article, we will be talking about the ODI Records and the Pitch Report of the Shere Bangla National Stadium Dhaka for the 1st BAN vs IND ODI.
The three ODIs are a part of the 2020–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. However, as both India and Bangladesh have already qualified for next year’s World Cup, both these sides would be looking into this series as a preparation for the big event. With key players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul returning to the side, the Men in Blue would be having a strong side in front of Bangladesh.
Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mustafizur Rahman will be the star players on Bangladesh’s side who would be having a big role to play if their side is to win against the Indians.

Shere Bangla Stadium Dhaka Pitch Report for BAN vs IND ODI
The Shere Bangla Stadium Pitch is known for its spin-friendly nature. The pacers would not be much effective here as they would only find a bit of movement off the pitch in the initial overs. Batters would be able to play them with ease for the rest of the innings. However, as the match progresses, the spinners will be seen dominating. Due to the slow nature of the pitch, it would get tough for the batters to score easily.
A 270-run total would be a good total at the Shere Bangla Stadium. Captains should be looking to chase at this venue.
