Staff Correspondent | Update:

Rohit Sharma (in the picture) and Shikhar Dhawan have made 63 in 8 overs. AFPOpeners Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have given India a fine start in their Nidahas Trophy game against Bangladesh on Wednesday.

The duo have made 63 in 8 overs, with Dhawan on 32 and skipper Rohit on 29.

Winning the toss, skipper Mahmudullah invited the opponents to bat first, very much like the previous game when they successfully chased 215 to defeat hosts Sri Lanka.

The Tigers have included Abu Hider in the eleven as Taskin Ahmed made way while India also made one change, Mohammad Siraj replacing Jaydev Unadkat.
