After a convincing 45-run victory against New Zealand in a rain-curtailed opening warm-up match, Virat Kohli will pray that his batsmen get some more game time than the 26 overs they got the other day. Also Catch- India vs Bangladesh ICC Champions Trophy 2017 warm-up match LIVE streaming
With Ajinkya Rahane failing as an opener in the first warm-up game, Rohit is likely to open with Shikhar Dhawan. It is still not clear if Yuvraj Singh, recovering from a bout of viral fever will be available for Tuesday’s match.
Kohli, after a well-compiled half-century in the first game, would prefer another good hit out there in the middle along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who looked impressive during his brief stint.
Bangladesh has been a very decent side in 50-overs cricket. The pace quartet of Mustafizur Rahaman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed and skipper Mashrafe Mortaza can prove to be more than a handful for any opposition on a given day.
