Suresh Raina-led Indian team leaves for Bangladesh
Kolkata: A 15-member India team captained by Suresh Raina left for Dhaka today to take part in a three-match ODI series against Bangladesh starting on Sunday.
India have picked a second string squad for the short tour with regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma among others being rested ahead of the long England tour.
Raina and some members of the side arrived here last evening and were put up at a city hotel to catch the morning flight.
