DHAKA: Bangladesh are facing Pakistan bowlers in the first One Day International (ODI) match against visiting Pakistan at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium at Mirpur in city on Friday.

Earlier, stand-in captain Shakib-Al-Hasan won the toss and decided to bat first.

Regular captain Mashrafe Mortaza is not playing the match as he was banned by International Cricket Council (ICC) for one match due to slow over rate in the World Cup 2015 quarterfinal match against India on March 19.

However, Mashrafe will lead Bangladesh in the rest of the two ODI matches and the lone Twenty20 match. Mushfiqur Rahim will captain the team in the test series.
