Cricket resumes in Bangladesh with Mahmudullah XI taking on Najmul XI during the first match of the BCB Three-Team 50-over Competition. The three-team event will be held for the first time in Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Mahmudullah XI have a strong and experienced squad when compared to their opponents. The team has a strong top-order batting lineup which consists of the likes of Imrul Kayes, Liton Das and Mominul Haque. They also have a few pinch hitters who can also contribute a handful of runs for the side.
On the other hand, Najmul XI go into this fixture with a strong pace department. The side will be banking on their pacers to give them the early breakthroughs as they lack quality batters. There will be a lot of pressure on Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar to score a bulk of the runs for the side as the others are not reliable enough.
Both the teams are evenly-matched on paper as thus we are in for an interesting game on Sunday.

Match: Mahmudullah XI vs Najmul XI
Date: 11th October 2020, 1:00 PM IST
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka
The strip in Mirpur will assist the bowlers during the first essay as there is some bounce and swing on offer. There is not much turn on offer for the spinners so we may not see too many over from them.
Batting will become easier as the match progresses. Both teams will look to bowl first and restrict the opposition to a below-par score after winning the toss.
