Ahead of India's first match of the 2016 Asia Cup against Bangladesh on Wednesday, India arrived in Bangladesh to prepare for the opening encounter. However, India were handed a blow when captain, MS Dhoni suffered a back spasm during training and is most likely to miss out on the opening game.

With the depth in India's batting lineup, India might not miss out on Dhoni's abilities with the bat, however, his cool and composed head while leading the side is something that India might miss in case the skipper does not regain match fitness.

Other than the Dhoni news, all seemed well in the Indian camp as players made preparations for the Asia Cup, which will be played in the T20 format for the first time.

Shikhar Dhawan and Harbhajan Singh, two of the most entertaining players in the Indian camp, had a different approach to preparing for the tournament. In a video released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the two players are seen involved in an arm-wrestling match during the training camp in Dhaka.

In the short video, Dhawan and Harbhajan seemed to go neck-and-neck against each other and no clear winner was visible by the end of the video.

India will be hoping that the duo can transform their off-field strength on to the pitch when India take on Bangladesh in Mirpur on Wednesday. Without the likely presence of Dhoni, Virat Kohli will be leading the Indian side.

India will be hoping that they can continue their form from the T20I series against Sri Lanka and do well in the Asia Cup thus carrying on the momentum for the ICC World T20.
