The opening duo look to pile on more misery on the Bangladesh bowlers, who have toiled hard through the day without any success whatsoever. They have only one specialist fast bowler and four spinners. But even the spinners have not been successful in getting breakthroughs. This after India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. Wicket Keeper Litton Das makes his debut in this match as regular keeper Mushfiqur Rahim is playing this match in the capacity of a batsman.
