India 443/3 (Rahane 77*, Virat Kohli 166*)

Day 1: India score 356/3 Murali Vijay 108, Virat Kohli 113*

The warm-up encounter against a young India A side evidently exposed the weakness of the Bangladesh batting department, and this will be the major area of concern for skipper Mushfiqur Rahim.

The bowling department of the hosts too failed to find the momentum in the practice game. The Indian A batsmen showed their full fury against the Bangladeshi bowlers, and they successfully moved the scoreboard at a rate of 5 runs per over.

For India, things are all on track, and they have one of the best eleven in the recent times. The only problem faced by Virat Kohli is regarding the 5th and 6th position.

Ajinkya Rahane and Karun Nair are battling for the 5th spot, and interestingly, both of them are in top-rated form.

Rohit Sharma is also eyeing for a place in the eleven.

Virat Kohli is more interested in including Ravichandran Ashwin in the sixth spot, and if it happens, Rohit Sharma will be out of the playing eleven. The ability of Ashwin to bat as the night watchman will also fall in his favor.
