Bangladesh have won the toss and decided to bat first in the opening match of T20 series against Pakistan in Lahore on Friday.

In the pre-series press conference, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad told the media that they are eager to play cricket and forget the other things that were talked much. Tigers have to stay in Pakistan in a tight-secured environment which is not usual for them. Mahmudullah said  that this will not impact their game.
