Team director Ravi Shastri hosted a 'Team Dinner' for the entire Test squad on Sunday to celebrate their good performance in the rain-marred one-off cricket Test.

"It was Ravi who took special initiative to host a dinner at a club in the posh Gulshan area of Dhaka. The team members were told that it's been a moral victory for them as our opponents were never in the match. Another reason for hosting the dinner is because Test team members like Harbhajan Singh, Wriddhiman Saha will be leaving for India tomorrow (Monday)," a source close to Team management said.

ODI captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni along with other limited overs specialists will arrive on Monday evening. The players will be taking an off on Monday and will resume training from Tuesday at Shere Bangla stadium in Mirpur.

There are talks that India might send a junior team to Zimbabwe under three assistant coaches while Shastri will resume his duties from the Sri Lanka tour.

"Nothing is final as of now. There are discussions in BCCI on this issue but a call on this will only be taken after three-match series is over," the source added.
