India wins the toss and opts to bowl.
Rohit Sharma: We have not chased so we want to do it under the lights. Typical Colombo wicket. It has something for everyone. It has been two paced. A bit challenging. Another opportunity for us to challenge ourselves. We really thought of giving game time. Five changes. Virat, Hardik, Siraj, Bumrah, Kuldeep are out and the rest who sat out come in.
Shakib Al Hasan: A bit confused what to do. Not bad to bat first and put runs on the board. We have high expectations. We could not play to our potential. The guys who have not played much will get the opportunity. Tanzim Hasan makes his debut. A tournament like this will show where we need to improve.
Deep Dasgupta and Mathew Hayden reckon the wicket is pretty hard with more bounce on offer. Teams batting first have one thrice and the chasing team once. Spinners have been more successful in the second innings with more wickets at an average of around 27.
News from the Bangladesh camp as veteran wicketkeeper batter Mushfiqur Rahim will not be available for the game as he is expecting the birth of his second child.
Middle-order batter Tilak Varma has been handed over his ODI Cap and is all set to make his debut for India in the format.
