After a long break due to injury, all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are set to be back in action with the third round of the ongoing Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) starting from Friday.
Saifuddin will represent BCB North Zone in the BCL while Miraz will play for Walton Central Zone. North Zone will take on Islami Bank East Zone in this round of BCL while Central Zone will take on BCB South Zone. Both the matches will take place in Cox's Bazar.
Saifuddin had a long-lasting back problem which prevented him from playing BPL. He also missed Bangladesh's India tour and the recent tour to Pakistan. Miraz, on the other hand, had a shoulder problem and missed the Pakistan series.
However, both Saifuddin and Miraz have a good chance of reclaiming their places in the national team for the remaining part of the Pakistan tour which comprises of one ODI and one Test in Karachi.
South Zone are currently at the top of the table with 16.39 points from the first two games while East Zone are right behind them with 13.06 points. If the top two teams manage to retain their places, they will face each other in the final starting from February 21 at Sylhet.
