After consistently opposing the referral system which all other countries have adopted in bilateral contests, the BCCI recently relented and has chose to use it on an experimental basis.
Hameed will become just the second teenager to play Test cricket for England in 67 years; Ben Holliaoke appeared against Australia in 1997 at the same age, the only other teen to do so since 18-year-old Brian Close's debut in 1949.

"Bangladesh and we have got it here".
The BCCI threatened to cancel the opening Test unless judges ended the freeze on its bank accounts, saying it would be unable to fund the match if the order remained in place. The visitors look more vulnerable than ever and it remains to be seen how they cope against an Indian team which has been unbeaten at home for over three years. The mindset is not to compete anymore.

"Momentum will be a key factor on which advantages and disadvantages will depend on". England beat hosts Bangladesh in the first Test in Chittagong but hardly looked convincing. It made me realise that I need to up my game.
They have belatedly adopted the system which allows them and opponents to refer on-field decisions to the technology available in the third umpire's room, and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane acknowledges they will have to be careful to get their tactics right.
One good news for England has been the prospect of pace spearhead James Anderson returning earlier than expected from a shoulder injury.
