Bangladesh cricket team is currently travellin Sri Lanka where they are scheduled to play a dual series against Sri Lanka national team which consists of two tests, three ODIs and two T20Is. The official tournament will start with long format cricket in next 7th March, 2017. Due to the reason, the Tigers has already moved to the Sri Lanka and to adapt their environment, the Tigers has already started to play a two days warm up match against Sri Lanka Cricket President’s XI just earlier yesterday where the Tigers lost the toss and came to bat. Team Bangladesh started the match very well and most of the players contributed to the score where Tamim Iqbal scored highest 136 runs so far. They have completed the first day of the warm up match very well and scored 391 runs by losing seven wickets. In the afternoon of the first day of warm up match, the covered with cloud and so, the match was about to shut but finally, rain did not come. So, team Bangladesh batted complete ninety overs so far.

Earlier yesterday at De Soysa Stadium, the Tigers opened their innings with Tamim and Soumya. Their opening were good but Soumya got out so early. He gave a catch to Chandraguptha when he scored just nine. After his departure, Tamim and Mominul made a long partnership which added almost 150 runs to the scoreboard. Tamim and Mominul both of them took retired out where Mominul went earlier than Tamim. He left the crease with his 73 runs innings. Tamim almost completed two sessions successfully and scored 136 runs. He played 182 balls and made nine boundaries and seven over boundaries. Captain Mushfiq came to bat at number four position. He just promoted two steps than before. He used to came to bat on 6th position but due to leave the keeping, his batting position is promoted. He and Shakib almost played for while but could not make their innings longer which was expected from them. Mahmudullah came to bat on 6th position where his general position was taken by Mushfiq. He also played well and made couple of shots also. He got out with 43 runs. Liton Das, who was added to the team squad by replacing Mushfiq’s keeping position played well and remained not out with his 57 runs. At the end of the day, Liton and Taijul were still on the crease and perhaps they will bat in second day and would probably complete  first session and then declare the innings.
