Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Mithun has lauded Team India for winning the T20I series 2-1. He said Virat Kohli, the captain of Team India, is one of the strongest captains and the team he is leading is one of the finest in the world. Both India and Bangladesh teams have reached Indore and are preparing for the Test series.

When it comes to home Test match series the team is undoubtedly very strong, hard to defeat. These days we have seen the spinning and fast bowling are quite appreciable and fantastic.
