Comilla Victorians won the toss and has opted to bowl. Steven Smith led Victorians to the toss, and he says that the other foreigners in the XI are Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Evin Lewis. So it’s going to be Smith v Warner after all! Mouth-watering stuff. Yum.
kevin: “Regardless of his ban, its odd to see David Warner captain a BPL team here. Wouldn’t making a BD player like Nasir Hossain (who has captained at domestic level multiple times) be captain be better for Bangladesh cricket? For example, Mehedi Hasan, who’s only 21 is captaining his BPL team.”
Jaggu: “is sandeep playing today? ” — we’ll only know after the toss, won’t we? Still four minutes to go.
Sazedur Rahman: “Just browse the Cricinfo before the 40 minutes match start between CV and SS and found that you have already started the commentary. Thanks. It’s so nice that you are covering from before the toss and include more comments and thoughtful commentary and conversations!!” — Cheers, boss. Enjoy the coverage.
11.45am Hello and welcome to day two of the Bangladesh Premier League’s brand-new season. It’s Steven Smith’s team taking on David Warner’s, although it’s unlikely we’re seeing both of them in action today. Warner, however, attended a press conference in Dhaka last week, and said “life has been good to me.” Here are the team previews to get you started, as we wait for the 12noon toss. My name is Sreshth Shah, and here’s hoping we have a cracker of a game.
