Accelerator pedal

Rahul and Dhoni are looking to up the ante. Dhoni even took advantage of a long hop and deposited it into the stands. The moisture is drying out and India will certainly aim to press the accelerator pedal.

Four down

KL has looked in fine touch, picking the length early and pulling it in front of square. However, Shankar couldn't make a mark as he eked out an edge off a delivery that seamed away to the 'keeper. Rubel has taken two wickets so far.

Dream wicket

Huge blow... Saifuddin has castled Kohli with a well-directed yorker. The ball dipped quite a bit and Kohli played around it and it deflected via his pad and onto the stumps. Saifuddin is rightly over the moon. And he does an army-like salute in celebration!

Rohit dislodged

Well, against the run of play, Rohit was dismissed by Rubel. He tried to pull a short delivery but could only drag it back onto the stumps. It was there to be pulled but Rohit couldn't get it via the middle of the bat.

Kohli, Rohit navigate through

Kohli and Rohit cracked a couple of well timed shots to get things back on track. And the duo seems to have navigated through the tricky conditions early on.

Edged and four

Kohli edges one through the slip cordon and it runs away to the boundary hoardings. It swung a bit to produce the edge but there was a gap between the 'keeper and the wide slip and it scurried away.

Mustafizur strikes

Mustafizur has dislodged Dhawan. The left-armer generated a hint of swing in his second over and troubled Dhawan. Eventually, the southpaw got his front pad too far across and was trapped in front. Last year, Anderson and Broad had targeted Dhawan's weakness from round the wicket in Tests.

Stop-start...

One of those days where you will get play on a stop-start basis. The covers have been removed again. And the players are back.

Our man in Cardiff, Kaushik Rangarajan chips in, "A very relaxed atmosphere here. You would think Dhawan and Rohit have just scored 100s because at least 7-8 Bangladesh fielders have just walked over to shake their hands before the start of the game."

Rain is back

Oh, play lasted only two balls and covers are back on. With Cardiff, one expects rain to play spoilsport at some point of time. Interestingly, it didn't swing over the two balls of action.

Covers removed

There is some good news coming in as the rain has relented and the covers are being taken off. You could see a hint of movement off the pitch with some moisture around.

Rohit and Dhawan have come out to the middle. Interesting to see how they would handle tricky conditions.

Drizzle

Right, we might actually not have a prompt start. It has started to drizzle and the covers have been brought out. Cardiff and rain? The last match here - Bangladesh v Pakistan - was a washout. The forecast though is better for today.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Abu Jayed

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Lokesh Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni(w), Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal

TOSS - Bangladesh opt to bowl. India too would have bowled in conditions Kohli said was similar to that of the first game. The Indians are playing 14 with Kedar Jadhav still in the recovery phase. However, Vijay Shankar is back and will feature in today's game.

India started their World Cup campaign on a rather poor note as they lost their warm up game against New Zealand by six wickets. On a track that offered consistent movement off the pitch up front, most of the Indian batsmen struggled to negate the conditions. On a positive note, Jadeja accumulated a fifty lower down the order. It also has to be observed that in all likelihood tracks for the World Cup wouldn't offer considerable seam movement.

The Indian side would look to put the loss behind them when they lock horns versus Bangladesh in the second warm up match in Cardiff. Meanwhile, the Mortaza-led Bangladesh side would aim to get some game time after their first practice match against Pakistan was called off due to rain. With Cardiff, there is always a chance of rain playing spoilsport but the good news is that the weather forecast is promising enough. The track in Cardiff could offer a bit of moisture and movement up front and generally, one has witnessed two-paced decks.
