Indian cricketer MS Dhoni faced a lot of criticism after India’s first defeat in the ongoing World Cup. Dhoni faced the flak of the fans after he was unable to fire up while chasing a mammoth target of 337 runs. MS Dhoni played another slow inning in this World Cup after the Afghanistan and West Indies match.

MS Dhoni may not play in tomorrow’s game against Bangladesh as Mayank Agarwal has been called to replace injured Vijay Shankar. If Agarwal will play tomorrow then Indian skipper Virat Kohli will not hesitate to bench MS Dhoni as Rishabh Pant is already in the playing XI and can replace Dhoni as a wicket-keeper batsman.

Mayank Agarwal can open the innings with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul can go down to number 4 on his proposed position for this World Cup.

It will be interesting to see how will the Indian captain use Mayank Agarwal after Vijay Shankar got injured and he came in with ICC’s approval. There are also talks about that Virat Kohli might drop one spinner to bring in Bhuveneshwar Kumar in the playing XI but these are just speculations.

Probable Playing XI against Bangladesh:

Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma (VC), Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.
