Bangladesh batting first as India invite

Sports Desk: Bangladesh are batting first after India skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and asked Tigers to bat in their Asia Cup Super Four match in Dubai on Friday.
There are two changes for Bangladesh, as they have brought back Mushfiqur Rahim and Mustafizur Rahman -- both rested for Thursday's match against Afghanistan -- in place of Mominul Haque and Abu Hider Rony.
Bangladesh have had a roller-coaster Asia Cup so far. They won the first match against Sri Lanka by 137 runs in rousing fashion, with the story of the game being Tamim Iqbal coming out to bat with a fracture left hand in order to enable Mushfiqur -- who ended on a career-best 144 -- to bat out as much of the overs as possible.
However, both players missed the next match -- Tamim was ruled out of the tournament and flew back to Dhaka, while Mushfiqur was rested for Thursday's match against Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi to give his injured ribs a chance to heal. In that match, Bangladesh fell to a humbling 136-run defeat.
Bangladesh team: Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mohammad Mithun, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain
