The BCB President's Cup began on Sunday where Najmul XI beat Mahmudullah XI by 4 wickets. Today, Mahmudullah XI will be looking to make a comeback in their second match against Tamim XI who are desperate to kick-off their campaign with a win.
Tamim XI will be batting first after losing the toss at Mirpur. Mahmudullah XI did bat first in their opening match and failed miserably, thus they made a change to their tactics today.
Mahmudullah XI made two changes to their playing eleven, fast bowler Abu Haider Rony and spinner Rakibul Hasan make ways for Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Sumon Khan. Tamim XI leave out U-19 world cup winning captain Akbar Ali and Syed Khaled Ahmed.
