For a country whose cricketing story has perennially remained on the lines of possessing rich talent but achieving a very little, Bangladesh stand a chance to consume great lessons in Test cricket when they play India in the one-off Test. Having made their Test debut in 2000 and finally getting a chance to play at one of the toughest venues against most clinical of teams in the format 17 years later, Bangladesh must not miss the important aspect of learning on this tour, which will hold them in good stead in time to come. Bangladesh’s firepower may lure them into fancying bigger feats, but a stoic and determined approach to learn the art of Test cricket, is the need for a team which is tends to get swayed. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Bangladesh, One-off Test at Hyderabad

It can be labelled as a false sense of security or getting satisfied at small milestones, but Bangladesh have failed to remain consistent over the years. There is no dearth of talent; cricketers such as Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal are automatic selections in any side, but it is imperative to keep the focus on learning from those at the top and Bangladesh do not get such opportunities often. A team that went into oblivion in Test cricket for a very long time after their exploits in the 2015 World Cup, this one-off Test in Hyderabad gives them a chance to match their skill set with the best in the business and determine where they stand.

The tour of India for a one-off Test does sound harsh on a team whose players had been vociferous over lack of chances with the big teams, but Bangladesh will have to look more into what they can take away for the longer run, and not on rather what they can achieve.

A potent spin attack which had befuddled England in their previous Test at home is likely to lure Bangladesh into thinking they can achieve the same in India. But a win will only bring a few moments of ecstasy and Bangladesh may slip back into the hole, as it has happened in the past.

Not long ago, Bangladesh registered a historic win in a Test against England but went on to lose every single match on the New Zealand tour. The two previous series for Bangladesh only highlight inconsistency, which is an ill aspect of cricket as it hampers progress over a long period of time. India vs Bangladesh: All you need to know

The last two visiting sides in India — New Zealand and England, missed a very critical aspect of learning. Given the form India are in at present, there are claims of this team being capable of beating England and Australia in their backyard. Indians have become unrelenting with the ball as much as they have been with the bat, and thus, spending time in the middle against one of the best bowling attacks should be the goal for visiting sides with a very little chance to win.

Both New Zealand and England are guilty of squandering the opportunity to add rich experience of batting in India against the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. A few of their batsmen did show the intent to learn, with England’s teenaged opener Haseeb Hameed presenting a strong case. BAN chance to erase subcontinent follies in dicey one-off contest

Not just the batsmen, but bowlers too will be up against some of the best batsmen currently. While a battle between Shakib and Virat Kohli will be enticing, it will be a stern test for the likes of Taijul Islam and Mehedi Hasan Miraz to bowl against Indian batsmen who plundered a lot of runs against the Kiwi and English spinners. Murali Vijay has, in the past, shown frailties against the short ball, something which the Bangladeshis can exploit. Ajinkya Rahane, who has had a forgettable run with the bat in the ongoing ‘India Cricket’ season, is yet another batsman susceptible against short bowling.

“You also need to think that they [Indian batsmen] play spin well,” Shakib said after arriving in India. “I think they are the best in playing against spin, so it will be a big challenge for us. If we can do well here it will boost our confidence for the Sri Lanka series,” he added.

Shakib knows the importance of carrying confidence from once series into another, something that Bangladesh failed to do miserably on the New Zealand tour. Bangladesh can still draw a lot from their win at Chittagong over England. Teams that want to accomplish big do not repeat mistakes, and it remains to be seen how strong Bangladesh turn up mentally after the drubbing in New Zealand. Bangladesh can surprise India in many departments, but to not take this tour also as a learning curve could be regressive.
