Bangladesh win the toss and decide to bat. Shakib: "We are confident of doing well. We are headed to England next, but looking to do well here." He then smiles sheepishly and says he does not remember his team! But he knows they are playing three seamers. We will take his word for that.. He reckons 240-260 is a good score. Sri Lanka defended 242 yesterday. Mashrafe Mortaza, Syed Rasel and Shafiul Islam are the three seamers, while Suhrawadi Shuvo will tweak 'em later in the day.

Dhoni: "WELL OF COURSE, we would have liked to bat first. Good for everyone that the seniors had a one-month break. The last time we had such a break was after the early exit from the 2007 World Cup. Dinda, Tiwary, Ashwin and Ojha are missing out."

So Ravindra Jadeja will be India's second-spinner cum allrounder - a role he has performed well in the 50-over format.

A warm welcome to game two of the Asia Cup! The big guns from India are back in business, with reputations to salvage. They begin their campaign against Bangladesh - on paper the easiest outing, but India know better than to take anyone lightly, following their Zimbabwe embarrassment. While we wait for the toss, time to reflect on yesterday's game - for my money one of the best ODI games in a long time. It had plots, it had sub-plots, it had superb performances from a clutch of superb players... and it had a close finish. If the Dambulla pitch continues to play like that through the next few days, we are in for a cracking Asia Cup.
bangladesh is batting first...i hope they put up a total in excess of 250...chasing under lights will not be easy for India...go bangla go..
Let us have a thread atleast to keep the match information in the archives :) Bangladesh bat first and having a good start!!
This is the first time I've seen Imrul Kayes scoring over a run a ball
Kumar to Tamim Iqbal, SIX, 125.0 kph, Whoop! Shades of Saeed Anwar there! Not a very bad ball, this one was straying marginally down the leg, Tamim got his front foot across, and picked it off his hips and flicked it high and handsome over square leg.

cricinfo gone crazy

Aaaaaaaah .. uppish drive .. and tamim gone ... he was loooking damn goood :(

yeah he cud have done some serious damage to India..all hopes on Shakib now
Iqbal gone now things will slow down. Hopefully BD make a match out of this by posting at least 220+ total.

tamim got a bit over ambitious .........

yes and though he is still young he has been around for a while now and should have looked for a single after hitting the Sadial for a six and a four earlier.
Bangladesh only decent batsmen gone so they will probably falter now!
Yaar I was really looking forward to Tamim Iqbal's batting Dissapointed that he got out!!!
After getting such a good start Bangladesh need to play sensibly and they can reach 260+

that ball was in the zone to hit ... he just slashed it ... didnt come close to ball ...
ashraful is crap.......

him and m.hafeez probably fall under the same category
Its better that India had thier first match against BD.
Atleast from the bowling perspective..these guys were lacking match practice..
now they are bowling close to the stumps .. .

and that a good looking straight drive .. 444444:)
4 of the over by PK..
They need to keep taking wickets..Otherwise BD will definitely get past 250..and
given the conditions under lights, thats going to be one hell of a chase..
though indian batting is their high point but still 260 will be tough to chase ...

kayles .. is waiting for right ball to hit it ..

50/1 in 8 overs
ZAK starts with three dot balls.. and Kayes follows it up with a FOUR..
good going by BD actually...6 of the over..
nice flick over square leg for 3 ..

interesting stats :) they hve not taken a single so far
Never seen a cricket match where single is not taken in the first ten Overs.Bdesh have not taken a single so far!!!
Kumar to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, SINGLE! Cherish the moment folks! Praveen gets it to slant in, and Kayes' attempted guide to third man goes off the inside edge to fine leg.
Scoring balls are only 18 that is 3 overs .... rest are dot balls ...

60/1 in 11overs
Wow, Ashraful has just thrown away the start Kayes and Tamim gave Bangladesh with snail pace batting.
