We preview the upcoming 2-Test series between India and Bangladesh – which will include the first ever day-night Test to be held in India.

Talking Points:

Why would Bangladesh's greatest-ever cricket overlook something so fundamental?

How public sentiment fluctuated over the hectic few days between the players' strike and Shakib's ban

The novelty around the day-night Test, and how that could actually give Bangladesh a small opening in Kolkata

Will Taizul Islam and Mehidy Hasan fancy their chances against a batting order that is likely to go after them?
