India vs Bangladesh 1st T20I Dream 11 Prediction: India and Bangladesh will play the opening match of a 3-match T20I series at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Sunday.

India are currently ranked No. 5 on the ICC T20I charts and stand-in captain Rohit Sharma said the hosts will be looking to improve on that aspect. While the Asian giants have been good at chasing, setting and defending totals has been a cause of concern, as conceded by Rohit in the pre-match presser.
In the absence of Virat Kohli who has been rested for the T20I series, the onus will be on Rohit Sharma to do the bulk of the scoring. At the same time, India have gone into the T20I series with a lot of young legs.
Shivam Dube, the Mumbai all-rounder who has been in good form in the domestic level and the India A level, may make his debut in Delhi, considering the absence of Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar. Rishabh Pant is India's 1st choice wicketkeeper-batsman but he will be facing pressure from in-form Sanju Samson who has earned a recall after making his T20I debut as early as 2015.
All eyes will be on the opener and as well a few middle-order spots as the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Samson and Shreyas Iyer provide India with plenty of options.
For Bangladesh, it will be a fresh start after Shakib Al Hasan ban rocked the cricket fraternity. The visitors will also be without Tamim Iqbal and Shaifuddin for the T20I series in India.

Here's our Dream 11 predictions for India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I in Delhi
Considering Rohit Sharma's form, he should be among the first names on the list. Shikhar Dhawan or Liton Das can be a good choice for the other opening slot. KL Rahul, who was in fine form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, can be slotted at No. 3 in the absence of Virat Kohli. Shreyas Iyer at No.4 can be a good option.
While Rishabh Pant is known for his explosive style, he has struggled to be consistent in the recent past. On the other hand, Mushfiqur Rahim is a seasoned pro and is likely to step up and deliver in the absence of other senior Bangladesh players.
Shivam Dube is likely to make his India debut on Sunday. The highly-rated youngster can bowl medium pace and hit the ball long. He can be a good choice for the fast-bowling all-rounder role while the likes of Mossaddek Hossain and Washington Sundar are good spin-bowling all-rounders.
Mustafizur Rahim and Deepak Chahar are easy picks while leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who is returning to the T20I side, is a safe choice for the frontline spinner role.
Dream 11 team for India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I: Rohit Sharma (C), Liton Das, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shivam Dube, Mossaddek Hossain, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar (VC), Mustafizur Rahman, Yuzvendra Chahal

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar, Shikhar Dhawan, Shivam Dube, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Krunal Pandya, Rishabh Pant, K L Rahul, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur.

Bangladesh: Mahmudullah Riyad (C), Taijul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Liton Kumer Das, Soumya Sarker, Naim Sheikh, Mushfiqur Rahhim, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Aminul Islam Biplob, Arafat Sunny, Abu Hider, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam.
