Teams for Tigers' preparation matches
21 September, 2006
Bangladesh Cricket Board on Wednesday named the two teams to play two practice matches as part the Tigers' preparation for next month's ICC Champions Trophy in India.
The two practice matches will be held at the BKSP on September 23 and 25.
Tigers captain Habibul Bashar will lead Team A, the virtual final squad for the mini World Cup of cricket, sans his top pace bowlers Mashrafee Bin Mortuza and Syed Rasel. Both the quicks have been rested due to injury.
Tushar Imran will be in charge of Team B, featuring only one player from the India bound side in debutant Mehrab Hossain Jr and mostly, national discards and the up and coming cricketers.
National team's latest out-of-favour opener Javed Omar, however, failed to make either side.
Team A: Habibul Bashar (captain), Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Sakib Al Hasan, Farhad Reza, Nadif Chowdhury, Khaled Mashud, Mohammad Rafique, Abdur Razzak, Ziaur Rahman, Shahadat Hossain Rajib and Shafaq Al Jabir.
Team B: Tushar Imran (captain), Rajin Saleh, Nazmus Sadat, Jahirul Islam, Mehrab Hossain Jr, Manzarul Islam Rana, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tapash Baisya, Enamul Haque Jr, Nazmul Hossain, Mahmudullah Riyad, Dollar Mahmud and Uttam Sarkar.
