Tigers begin World T20 mission today

April 27, 2010

Bangla-desh begin their campaign in the ICC World Twenty20 with a warm-up match against Barbados at the Kensington Oval in Barbados today. The match will start at 11:30pm Bangladesh Standard Time.
The Tigers reached Barbados late on Monday and had a practice session next morning before skipper Sakib al Hasan attended the official press briefing. No further information was available as the Bangladesh Cricket Board did not send the media manager with the squad.
Bangladesh, who will face holders Pakistan in their first match of the tournament on May 1, will play their second warm-up game against England at the same venue on Wednesday.
Barbados squad may feature some of the promising cricketers of the island like Ryan Hinds, Larry Babb, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Jason Haynes, Jason Hinds, Jason Holder, Kyle Hope, Antonio Mayers, Carlo Morris, Martin Nurse, Ashley Nurse and Barrington Yearwood.
Rayan Hinds, a left-handed batsman and left-arm spinner, who played 15 Tests and 14 One-Day Internationals for the West Indies, is expected to lead the local side.
