Dhaka: Sri Lankan captain Kumara Sangakkara won the toss and elected to field against Bangladesh in the opening match of the Idea cup at Dhaka on Monday.

It was the dew factor which prompted Sri Lankan captain to bowl first.

The pitch, covered with grass all over will provide something for the bowlers to cheer about.

Teams

Sri Lanka have called back Nuwan Kulasekera and Chamara Silva back in the playing eleven, as they go in with three pacers and a spinner.

Young fast bowler Shafiul Islam will make his ODI debut for Bangladesh.
