Australia won the toss and decided to bowl first against India in their World Twenty20 Group 2 game at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.
India have made two changes. Ajinkya Rahane replaces Shikhar Dhawan while Mohit Sharma replaces Mohammad Shami.
India captain MS Dhoni said, “As the tournament progresses, the wickets will slow down even more. Today the dew is not much but it’s nothing compared to Chittagong.
“Anyway we wanted to bat first today. Let’s not look at a great total, just look to bat well and analyse later.
“We have a couple of changes. Rahane replaces Shikhar and Shami makes way for Mohit.”
Australia captain George Bailey said, “It seems that the ball is coming on to the bat in the night.
“The Indians are one of the favourites for the title. We need to be at our best.
“We are playing White in place of Faulkner.”
