Bangladesh send India to bat in first ODI
Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bowl first in the first ODI of the three-match series against India in Mirpur on Sunday.
Bangladesh's stand-in skipper Liton Das said they were going with three seamers and two spinners, taking into consideration the moisture on the wicket. India captain Rohit Sharma, too, said they would have probably wanted to bat first in their first ODI in Mirpur since 2015.
