Asia Cup 2016, Match 3
Bangladesh vs UAE
According to the team management Bangladesh will have some changes and also a change in the game plan. In the last match Bangladesh’s plan was to hit the ball harder after it gets old but seems like they didn’t follow this plan. Moreover the opening pair is still a concern for the team as its hard to find the replacement of Tamim Iqbal who is out of this tournament for his family emergency. But Imrul Kayes who batted on number 4 in the last match can be seen opening the innings for Bangladesh.
After the tragic loss against India, team Bangladesh is up for another match against UAE on Friday. UAE who impressed us with their performance in the qualifier stage faced Sri Lanka in their first match, though they got defeated by them yet they put on a great show. On the other hand Bangladesh is looking for their first victory in this tournament. Losing the first game did leave a scar on the team but as the captain said in the conference that they’re improving in the T20 and they are looking forward to make a comeback to this tournament.
Bangladesh will definitely have one change in their team. Nasir Hossain can replace Mithun Ali. Also Imrul Kayes might open the innings for Bangladesh.
