India have fielded a second string team under Mandeep Antil's captaincy as most of the senior players are featuring in the ongoing and lucrative Hockey India League but they should not face any problem in beating Bangladesh ranked 22 places below them at 29th at the FIH charts.

But the home side, ranked seventh in the world, would get a chance to see how the team, mainly made up of junior players, would perform under match situations ahead of the marquee clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on Monday.

The Indian team, which also has experienced midfielder Gurbaj Singh, named after serving a suspension period of nine months, would look to implement the plans and tactics as these of players have not played together often in a competitive match.
Talking about tomorrow's match, Gurbaj said his team will not take any side lightly and will play their natural game.
