The Bangladesh cricket team is in Sri Lanka to play a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. Before the series, Tamim and Muminul are playing a warm-up match. Tamim Iqbal’s red team started batting before the match.
The two-day warm-up match started at 10:30 am Bangladesh time at Chilao Marianas Cricket Club Ground in Katunayak.
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) did not allow any local team to play a warm-up match on the pretext of coronavirus. The Sri Lankan board will not even allow a local cricketer to practice in the nets. That is why Bangladesh went to Lanka with a large contingent of 21 members. The BCB will announce the squad for the two-match Test series after watching the warm-up match.
Red team: Tamim Iqbal (captain), Mushfiqur Rahim, Taizul Islam, Mehedi Hasan Miraj, Saif Hasan, Nazmul Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wicket keeper), Taskin Ahmed, Abu Zayed, Khaled Ahmed, support staff.
Green team: Muminul Haque (captain), Liton Das, Sadman Islam, Shubhagat Home, Mohammad Mithun, Yasir Rabbi, Naeem Hasan, Shariful Islam, Ebadat Hossain, Shahidul Islam, Mukidul are fascinated.
