    Pre-match: While the whole world is in the grip of football World Cup fever, India arranged a last-minute ODI series in Bangladesh before the testing tour of England, but the three-match rubber starting Sunday isn't trivial, for it provides the fringe Indian players a chance to prove their mettle in the absence of rested stalwarts.

    Keeping the testing English summer in mind, the BCCI chose to send a young squad considered "weak" by Bangladesh, who have expressed their disappointment at not seeing stars like skipper MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the touring squad.
