Dhaka - Stand-in England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and elected to bat in the first one-day international against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Friday.

Bangladesh left out Soumya Sarkar, Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain, while England handed an ODI debut to 21-year-old left-handed batsman Ben Duckett and paceman Jake Ball at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

England's tour, beginning with three ODIs, has been overshadowed by security concerns after regular captain Eoin Morgan opted out because of a deadly jihadist attack earlier this year.

Teams:

Bangladesh

Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mosharraf Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shafiul Islam

England

Jason Roy, James Vince, Ben Duckett, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Jake Ball

Umpires: Marias Erasmus (RSA) and Sharfuddoula Saikat (BAN)

TV umpire: Aleem Dar (PAK)

Match referee: Javagal Srinath
