Dhaka - Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat in the second and final Test at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Both sides made one change each from the drawn first Test in Khulna, with Bangladesh replacing the injured Rubel Hossain with Shahadat Hossain and Pakistan dropping spinner Zulfiqar Babar to play an additional seamer in Imran Khan.

Pakistan are looking for their first win at the end of the month-long tour where they were routed 3-0 in the one-day series and also lost a Twenty20 international for the first time against Bangladesh.


Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Mahmudullah, Shuvagata Hom, Soumya Sarkar, Taijul Islam, Shahadat Hossain, Mohammad Shahid.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Sami Aslam, Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Yasir Shah, Imran Khan, Sarfraz Ahmed, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan.

Umpires: Nigel Llong (ENG) and Paul Reiffel (AUS)

TV umpire: Ranmore Martinesz (SRI)

Match referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
