Bangladesh invites India to bat first

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah won the toss and elected to bowl first against India in the fifth Twenty20 international of the tri-nation tournament in Colombo on Wednesday.

 

The Tigers made one change from the side that won against hosts Sri Lanka last week, bringing in rookie left-arm quick Abu Hider in place of Taskin Ahmed.

 

India skipper Rohit Sharma said the team was looking to bat first as they eye a place in the final. Paceman Mohammed Siraj gets into the XI in place of Jaydev Unadkat.
