T20 cricket made a return to the South Asian Games after 9 years and here, everyone’s fighting for the prestigious gold medal, with Bangladesh winning it last in 2010. Here, Bangladesh U23 will be in action once again ,the difference is that they won’t be playing at home now, as the 2019 South Asian Games are being hosted in Nepal this time around.
They will be up against the full strength team of Maldives, a team that doesn’t have too much international exposure, ranked as low as 76th in the ICC T20 Rankings for men. This tournament will be played alongside the women’s competition in Nepal and you can keep reading for our complete My11Circle (Get Rs.500 Bonus*) fantasy preview of the BD U23 vs SL U-23 MLD game…

- BD U23: –
- MLD: L W L L L
- Nazmul Hossain Shanto in last 5 games for BD Emerging – 46, 59, 59*, 94, 22*.
- Mohamed Azzam – highest score of 14 runs in last 10 T20 games for Maldives.
- Soumya Sarkar – 3 fifties in last 5 games for BD Emerging Team.
- Ibrahim Hassan – wicketless in last 4 T20I games for Maldives.
This team is a star-studded one led by Nazmul Hossain Shanto who has already made his debut for the national side in all three formats and will be one of the first players I pick in my BD U23 vs MLD fantasy team. Another player who has 8 T20Is for Bangladesh is Afif Hossain who made headlines in 2016 when he became the youngest to pick a 5-fer in the BPL T20 League. Now, he’s handy with the bat as well.
Saif Hassan is undoubtedly one of the best upcoming batsmen in the Bangladesh circuit who has consistently been performing and was selected to the squad to play India also recently. In October, he smashed his FC best of 220* for Dhaka Div and also started bowling now, making him a good captain/vice-captain pick. Interestingly, Soumya Sarkar is also in the squad, someone who has 100+ games at the highest level.
Don’t bother selecting more than 4 players from Maldives are they’re playing a very strong Bangladesh U-23 side and Maldives themselves have no great T20 record, winning 1 of their 8 internationals so far. Ahmed Hassan is one player worth picking as he has 148 runs with a best score of 53 in these 8 T20Is, while also having 2 wickets to his name. Number 3 batsman Mohammed Rishwan has 2 fifties in these 8 T20Is.
With the ball, add Ibrahim Hassan to your My11Circle (Get Rs.500 Bonus*) fantasy team who has 9 wickets in his 8 T20 international so far, including a 5-fer in just his second game. Another good pick with the ball could be Mohamed Mahfooz who has 7 wickets in his T20I career so far, to go with a total of 26 runs. Star all-rounder Umar Adam has not been names in the Maldives squad this time around.
