BD-U23 Vs MLD Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Having already played four T20s earlier, Maldives’ Mohamed Azzam is being brought into our Dream 11 side for this contest. The player has just the 41 runs in those encounters but he’s capable of piling on the runs, seeing us go in with him for the day.
Elsewhere from Bangladesh we have opted for Zakir Hassan despite his low batting order given the dismissals he’s set to be involved in today which will see him ring in a slew of points for us.
BD-U23 Vs MLD Dream11 Batsmen
With 233 runs in 9 T20 encounters, we begin this docket of our Dream 11 side with Bangladesh’s opening bat, Naim Sheikh. He’s up against a paper thin Maldives bowling unit, one which could find it tough to restrain him given his Claire and ability to score runs at a tear away rate.
From Maldives elsewhere we have gone in with a partnership, two players who are going to be instrumental for the side if they are going to have any chance of winning today. With 148 runs in 7 matches, Ahmed Hassan becomes the first player to be enshrined in our Dream 11 setup for the day with Mohamed Rishwan coming in with the 212 runs in his kitty.
BD-U23 Vs MLD Dream11 All-Rounders
The one player apiece from either side for us in this slot of our side, both names who come bearing traits which are reminiscent to each other. Maldives’ Adam Nasif and Bangladesh U23’s opener, Saif Hassan are players not only capable of doling out runs with the bat but showing fight and character with the ball as well, dual natured players who make for a seamless blend of function and grace.
BDU23 Vs MLD Dream11 Bowling Order
We ended up going in with a trio of selection from Bangladesh not only owing to their fearsome and formidable bowling unit but the identity of their opponent’s batting order as well. The side are up against a team known to crumble and crack under vicious bowling, seeing us begin with our picks with Hasan Mahmud.
Their ability to send down wicket to wicket line and length and perturb atmen by peppering then with consistent bowling sees the partnership of Mahadi Hasan and Tanvir Islam as well from the side. Elsewhere from the other side of the sot we have selected just the one player with the side’s captain having snared 7 wickets and scored 26 runs with the bat in the same time.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Hassan is going to captain our side out for the day whilst Mahmud is our vice-captain.
