Bangalore - Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field in their World Twenty20 clash against India at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday.

Bangladesh have brought back star batsman Tamim Iqbal who was sick for his team's loss to Australia on Monday.

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said there were no changes to the team that beat Pakistan on Saturday.

India are precariously placed in fourth spot of Group Two after one defeat and one win and need an emphatic victory to boost their run rate as they bid for a semi-finals berth.

Bangladesh, languishing on the bottom of the group, are desperate for a win after two straight losses.
