Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene has won the toss and opted to bat first on a greenish wicket of the Mirpur Sher E Bangla stadium in Dhaka today. Earlier, heavy fog descended overnight caused one and half hour delay to the start of the first Test match.
Bangladesh have named their playing XI excluding left arm spinner Enamul Haque Jnr. from the 12-man pre-match squad.
