The one-off Test at Fatullah will be Kohli’s first as a full-time captain after Mahendra Singh Dhoni retired from Tests during the tour of Australia. Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh returns to the squad. India have won six Tests out of the seven they have played against Bangladesh with one turning out to be a draw.

Addressing a pre-departrure press conference in Kolkata yesterday, Kohli said,''We have learnt a lot, I don't think we need to play with a mindset of playing to learn. Obviously, we learn about the game all the time, even when we are watching it on TV. But we have played long enough now, we know what we want to achieve as a unit. So, we really want to achieve rather than go out of a match thinking what we have learnt from it.''

Insisting that the team is in good shape for the Bangladesh tour, which will also have three ODIs, Kohli said fitness is a prime concern to ensure that his side keeps a steady look.
"The team is looking in good shape. We conducted a fitness test yesterday because we feel that fitness is one area where we need to strengthen," he said.
"I have learnt a lot while captaining in Australia. The team's skills are good and I am looking to continue with the consistency. It's all about how you improve on your mistakes," he added referring to his stint Down Under when he took over captaincy after the shock retirement of Mahendra Singh Dhoni from the format.

India will play a lone Test and three ODIs in the short tour. The one-off Test match will start on June 10 while three ODIs will be played on June 18, 21 and 24.
