Mushfiq team has finally drawn the warm up match against India A team. The match consisted of two days where the Tigers decided to bat first. They scored 224 runs by losing eight wickets in their first innings where captain Mushfiq and Soumya played the main role and scored more than fifty runs so far. Excluding them, no players could manage a longer innings. If against India A team, the Tigers did this kinds of poor performance, then what could happen against India main team that is really a questionable matter now. To chase such poor score of Bangladesh, India a team declared their innings by making a ton of runs. They scored 461 runs where they still two wickets in hands. So, they lead by 237 runs. However, India A team declared their innings at near the end of 2nd day and the Tigers did not get enough time to chase it. But, in the meantime, the Tigers lost their two wickets and scored 73 runs. So, the game finished with draw.

However, the Tigers failed to dominate India A team in batting, bowling and fielding all cases. Like they were competing for the worse bowling and fielding. Sometimes, it seemed that Bangladesh tried to finish the game well. But, finally Tamim Iqbal did something good and scored some runs. Since last tour of New Zealand, Tamim was so dim and presented only but disappointment. Every times, he started the innings good but failed to longer his innings. Just scored fifty two times since that tour where highest was 59. But, yesterday he was somewhat impressive. Though, he did not able to play long time but was in his own form.

However, India A team finished their innings at the almost closing time and the Tigers received enough time to lay just 15 overs. So, they could not do anything amazing within the short time. But, all the times, Tamim was there. Finally, Tamim Iqbal scored 42 runs in 54 balls. He colored his innings with three 4’s and a six. With Soumya Sarkar, Tamim made an excellent partnership and through this, they scored 71 runs within just 12 overs. But, all of a sudden, Soummya was out and in the following ball, another wickets was fallen. But, finally the innings finished with drawn.

The ultimate competition will be staged in next 9th February, 2017 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.
