India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field against Bangladesh in a Champions Trophy semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday.

Light rain delayed the toss and overcast conditions would have encouraged Kohli to believe there would be assistance for his pacemen.

Champions Trophy title-holders India thrashed Bangladesh by 240 runs in a warm-up match at the Oval last month, a fixture where the Tigers collapsed to 84 all out.

The winners of this match will play Pakistan, who hammered England by eight wickets in Wednesday’s first semi-final in Cardiff, in Sunday’s final at the Oval in London.

India launched their title defence by thrashing arch-rivals Pakistan by 124 runs at Edgbaston on 4 June.

Both India and Bangladesh retained the sides that defeated South Africa and New Zealand respectively in the final round of the group stage.
