Bangladesh wins toss, fields first vs. Australia

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and opted to field first against Australia on Saturday in their first match of a three-game one-day international series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
Both sides are meeting in their first international encounter after disappointing World Cup campaigns.
Australia, the three-time defending World Cup champion, was out in the World Cup quarterfinals two weeks ago for its worst tournament result in 19 years while Bangladesh failed to get out of the group stage. Bangladesh suffered humiliating defeats against West Indies and South Africa.
Ricky Ponting resigned as test and ODI skipper after nine years of reign following the World Cup and agreed to continue to play under new captain Michael Clarke.
