Dhaka - India's captain Virat Kohli won the toss and put Afghanistan in to bat in the Asia Cup one-day international in Dhaka on Wednesday.

The first-ever one-dayer between the two teams will have no bearing on the tournament as Pakistan and Sri Lanka have already qualified for Saturday's final.

But it gives minnows Afghanistan a chance to test their skills against the reigning World Cup champions ahead of their maiden appearance in the tournament next year.

Team:

Afghanistan: Mohammad Nabi (captain), Mohammad Shahzad, Noor Ali Zadran, Nawroz Mangal, Asghar Stanikzai, Mirwais Ashraf, Samiullah Shenwari, Dawlat Zadran, Shapoor Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra.

Umpires: Billy Bowden (NZL) and Nigel Llong (ENG)

TV umpire: Ahsan Raza (PAK)

Match referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
