Comilla Victorians opted to bowl first after winning the toss against Chittagong Vikings in their 4th match of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Tuesday.
Chittagong Vikings included Chris Jordan replacing England all-rounder Luis Reece while national opening batsman Tamim Iqbal joined Comilla Victorians for the first time in the season against his home side Chittagong Vikings, but the team management continued to persist with Mohammad Nabi as captain.
This is Tamim's first game of the ongoing BPL season after a recovery from a thigh injury he sustained during the limited-over leg of the South Africa tour dropping all rounder Alok Kapali.
With just one win in three matches, Chittagong Vikings, currently on two points losing two of their three matches, are in need of a win here to climb to the top four while Comilla Victorians, after coming short in their tournament opener, won both the matches.
Comilla Victorians: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Liton Das, Mohammad Nabi (capt), Marlon Samuels, Jos Buttler, Dwayne Bravo, Arafat Sunny, Mohammad Saifuddin, Rashid Khan and Al-Amin Hossain
Chittagong Vikings: Luke Ronchi (wk), Soumya Sarkar, Anamul Haque, Dilshan Munaweera, Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Sikandar Raza, Chris Jordan, Tanvir Hayder, Sunzamul Islam, Subhasis Roy and Taskin Ahmed.
