Mahmudullah XI will take on Tamim XI in the fifth match of the tournament at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Monday.

The match which will start at 1.30 pm will be streamed live on Youtube and BCB’s Facebook page. Private Television channel Gazi TV will also telecast the match live.

Mahmudullah XI was in a corner situation after losing two in their three matches. They started the tournament with a four-wicket defeat to Nazmul XI before bouncing back in style, beating Tamim XI by five wickets. However, they were crushed by Nazmul XI in the return leg match by 131 runs, a defeat that also spoiled the condition of their run rate.

Tamim XI meanwhile played two matches, losing one and winning one. They conceded a five-wicket defeat to Mahmudullah XI but clawed their way back into the tournament with a 42-run win over Nazmul XI.

For Mahmudullah XI, tomorrow’s match is a ‘do or die’ match but for Tamim XI it is also equally important to keep them alive in the final race. Nevertheless, Tamim XI will have a match in their hands, so they will get another opportunity to comeback in case of a defeat against Mahmudullah XI. However, a defeat would ruin Mahmudullah XI’s chance straightway.
