Bangladesh to field first in T20I opener

News Desk: Bangladesh T20I skipper Nurul Hasan Sohan lost his first toss as captain and will field first in the T20I opener in the three-match series at the Harare Sports Club today.

Newly appointed interim captain Nurul takes charge of his first match following Bangladesh Cricket Boards efforts of rejuvenating the T20I side.

The Tigers T20I squad for the first time will be playing without four of their most experienced players- Mahmudullah Riyad, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Tamim Iqbal, who retired from T20Is last month.

Najmul Hossain was named in the playing eleven, and Mosaddek Hossain retained his place which means Mahedi Hasan had to step out.

Playing eleven: Anamul Haque, Munim Shahriar, Liton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Nurul Hasan (c & wk), Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman.
