England wins the toss and they decide to bat first,Bangladeshincludes three new players in the side.

Ben Duckett will make his Test debut in today's Test.

The 19-year-old man Haseeb Hameed is expected to open the innings along with Cook. Ben Duckett is also eyeing a spot in the final eleven, and we should wait till the toss to know whether he will be included in the side. If Ben finds a position in the eleven, he will bat at the fourth spot, ahead of Moen Ali, Ben Stokes, and Johnny Bairstow.

Adil Rashid and Gareth Batty will lead the spin attack of England. Cook is well aware that the pitch in Bangladesh is spin friendly, and he will give Adil, Ali and Gareth the full responsibility to tear down the Bangladesh batting.

On the other hand, Sabbir Rahman will be the trump card for Bangladesh in this Test series. The young man had a run spinning spree in the One Day Internationals, and he will be aiming to repeat the same magic in the Test games as well.
