Soumya Sarkar is set to continue opening in place of the injured Imrul Kayes and will partner Tamim Iqbal at the top. They capped off a year ago with back-to-back victories over New Zealand and England, doing plenty of damage in limited-overs cricket.
Kohli has 1,075 runs in this season, the 2nd-most by a batsman in a home season after Sehwag's 1,105 in 2004-05. "They showed they can compete at home against England and also in New Zealand".
Watch the live English stream of the India vs Bangladesh One-off Test from Hyderabad on hotstar. Vijay and Pujara were initially cautious as only seven runs came off the first five overs.
In the recent past, India lost their openers, middle-order batsmen, fast-bowlers and even a keeper to injury.
Rahul, whose scores hover between single and three digits in longer format was bowled, when he dragged a fuller delivery back onto his stumps from Taskin while attempting a cover drive.
Vijay and Kohli then added 54 runs before the former's journey was brought to an end by Taijul Islam. Among players with at least 10 Test hundreds, only Don Bradman with 2.23 (29 hundreds/13 fifties) and George Headley with 2.00 (10 hundreds/5 fifties) has a better conversion rate.

So, it is unclear if we'll see Google Assistant on many mid-budget or even high-end Android devices in the near future. Maybe, it is a way of Google to make the Assistant work more by introducing it in the old devices.
TEA: While Pujara would be disappointed after being dismissed on 83, Vijay has batted very sensibly and is just two runs short of another century.
Now the top test team with a formidable home record, India are overwhelming favourites in the one-off match against a side eight rungs lower in the official rankings.
Ajinkya Rahane, one of India's most consistent Test batsmen in the last few years was in danger of being dropped for the triple hundred hero, but Kohli and Kumble made a decision to stick with their more experienced batsman.
It will definitely be on India's mind to finish the game as quickly as possible keeping in mind that they are ranked No.1 in the ICC rankings while the minnows are at No.9.
Coming back, the right-handed pair went on to score their respective 50s to put India in a commanding position before Pujara was sent back to the pavilion by off-spinner Miraz.
The India captain was unbeaten at 111 off 141 balls, while Rahane was on batting at 45 off 60 when the stumps were drawn. He scored two fours off his first three balls, and with that a typical Kohli innings began to unfurl.
