ADELAIDE, Australia: Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and elected to bowl against India in Adelaide on Wednesday with both teams in the hunt for a semi-final spot at the T20 World Cup.

Bangladesh have made one change from their previous win over Zimbabwe, with Shoriful Islam coming in for Soumya Sarkar in Adelaide.

India won their first two matches including their opener against arch-rivals Pakistan but a loss to South Africa, who took top spot in Group 2, on Sunday hurt their semi-finals chances.
