Skipper Rajin Saleh defended his strange decision to bat first after his side were thrashed by South Africa in the Champions Trophy.
Saleh's first experience of international captaincy was tough
South Africa won with more than 32 overs to spare after the Tigers were bowled out for a paltry 93.
"The wicket was dry and when it is like that I like to bat first," said Saleh, who was leading Bangladesh for the first time.
"It was a good experience for me and I think I have learned a lot."
