Young all-rounder Mahedi Hasan blazed 57-ball 82 to help Tamim Iqbal XI post a challenging 221-9 against Nazmul Hossain XI in the third match of the BCB President’s Cup at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Nazmul won the all important toss and decided to bowl first and it looked to be perfect until the arrival of Mahedi as he shared 95 runs for the ninth wicket with Taijul Islam(20 not out) before being removed in the last over by Mukidol Islam

The dashing batsman played nine boundaries and three sixes in the game to make the highest score of the competition so far.

Tamim Iqbal(33) and Shahadat Hossain made (31) made useful contribution but rescued them  from despair as they were struggling on 108-7 at one stage.

Al Amin Hossain picked 3-43 while off-spinner Nayeem Hasan grabbed 2-28.

World Champion Under-19 captain Akbar Ali featured for Nazmul XI for the first time in the tournament but failed to make an impact scoring only two runs.

Nazmul XI won their first match against Mahmudullah XI by four wickets while Tamim XI conceded a defeat at the same margin to the Mahmudullah XI.

While a victory would help Nazmul XI to make a giant stride towards final, a defeat would make Tamim XI’s chance to move into the final tougher one.

Tamim XI however fielded an unchanged side.

Squad:

Tamim XI: Tamim Iqbal, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Mohammad Mithun, Shahadat Hossain Dipu, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Saifuddin, Mahedi Hasan, Taijul Islam, Shoriful Islam, Akbar Ali, Mustafizur Rahman.

Nazmul XI: Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Saif Hasan, Afif Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim, Toqhid Ridoy, Irfan Shukkur, Taskin Ahmed, Al-Amin Hossain.
