Full strength team to face Afghans: Mahmud
Khaled Mahmud Sujon

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its Games Development Committee Chairman Khaled Mahmud Sujon said on Saturday that they will play the three-match Twenty20 series against improved Afghanistan with the full strength side.

Sujon also said that the team they will dispatch will be no more changes than its squad what they sent for the Nidahas Cup Trophy in Sri Lanka. Later he, of course, said that one or two changes might be done for the need of the team’s combination.

“With the best possible side we will travel in India to play against Afghanistan,” said Khaled Mahmud Sujon, who had supervised Bangladesh team as technical director in the last Nidahas Cup Trophy in Sri Lanka but this time he might be remained in the same post.

“All the games will be played at Indian condition so there will have hot weather at that time. They (Afghanistan) have also good spin bowling attack. All know well that Afghanistan is a better side in this format of game,” Khaled Mahmud told media at the trophy unveiling ceremony of the newly-minted BCB Academy Cup Tournament in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Mirpur yesterday.

But I think, we have nothing to fear of Afghanistan. Now we have been doing well enough. Hopefully we will also play exciting cricket in this series,” he added.

Under the auspices of the BCB Games Development, Academy Cup Cricket Tournament will get underway at three different venues in Dhaka and its adjacent area today.

With the participation of the 32 private cricket academies in Dhaka Metropolitan, the tournament that will be evolved through the knockout basis to be acted as a platform for the fresh players whom had no opportunities to play competitive cricket.

BCB’s new such initiative was praised by Bangladesh one-day captain Masharafe Bin Mortaza and former national spinner Mohammad Rafique, the duo- among others- were also present on the occasion.

“It’s a big opportunity for the out of track players. Those who will fare well in the tournament will get chance to play under the BCB-run games and tournaments in future,” Mashrafe said.  

Sujon defies inclusion of any rookie spinner in the Tigers squad for the Afghanistan series. But he admits that they might bring change in one or two places for the need of the team’s combination.

BCB selection panel led by Minhajul Abedin Nannu is all set to announce Bangladesh squad for the next month’s T20 International series against Afghanistan in Dehradun, India today.
