Rohit Sharma calls right at the toss, wins toss and elects to bowl first vs Bangladesh in the Asia Cup Super 4 match in Dubai on Friday.
After a convincing victory against Pakistan, India will look to up the ante against Bangladesh, who have a penchant for playing the party poopers, in their opening Super Four encounter.
Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were amongst the runs in the first two matches while Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik looked solid against Pakistan.
It is Mahendra Singh Dhoni's batting form that could keep the team management worried.
Dhoni hasn't been firing and was out for a duck against Hong Kong. It will be interesting if Rohit promotes him in the batting order to give the veteran time to get settle down.
While India's rivalry with Pakistan is historic, the one against Bangladesh has been a bitter one post the controversial 2015 World Cup quarter-final at Melbourne.
However, one can't deny that Bangladesh are now a quality side in ODIs, a format they have mastered after a formidable run at home besides reaching the Asia Cup final in 2012.
India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
Bangladesh: Liton Das (w), Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
