Bangladesh wins toss and bats 1st in day-night test vs India

Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat Friday before an expected sold-out crowd at Eden Gardens in the first day-night test played in India and the first pink-ball test for either team.

Bangladesh made two changes, with spinner Nayeem Hasan and fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain coming in for Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan. India fielded an unchanged side with three pacers and two spinners.

The pitch at the 68,000-capacity Eden Gardens had an even sprinkling of grass. Dew was expected to be a factor in the evening sessions.

Lineups:

India: Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma.
