Bangladesh vs India, 5th Match – Toss Report and Playing XI


Rohit: “It’s always a good thing, when you’re batting first. We have to come out and bat well. Wicket’s not going to change much. We were clinical in the last game. Dinesh and Manish finished the game well. It’s about continuing that (good performance). No concerns about my own form. Spending more time is important; not playing too many shots early on. For me, the team performance matter the most. We have one chance — Siraj in place of Undakat.”

Mahmudullah: “We’ll have a bowl first. The wicket looks quite dry, so spinner might come into play. So want to use the conditions early on. The wickets here gets better and better. And we’re playing two specialist spinners, so would like to take advantage. Lot of questions were being asked about our abilities (before the last game). Abu Hider comes in, Taskin misses out.”
