The BCB President's Cup brought back cricket after a long pause due to the ongoing pandemic. It will close its curtain with the final between Najmul XI and Mahmudullah XI today.
Mahmudullah XI won the toss in the all important final and elected to bowl first. They have a bitter record against Najmul XI all through the tournament and they will want to turn things around in the final where it matters the most.
Both teams made several changes to their playing eleven. Rishad Ahmed, Parvez Hossain Emon and Muqidul Islam Mugdho sit out for Najmul XI while Mahmudullah XI left out batsman Naim Sheikh, pacer Abu Haider Rony and spinner Rakibul Hasan.
Najmul XI beat Mahmudullah XI in both of their group stage matches. They will be looking to make it three in three today.
The final was originally scheduled on October 23, but inclement weather forecast forced the Bangladesh Cricket Board to reschedule the match to today, October 25.
