Tamim’s unbeaten 141 off 61 hitting ten fours and eleven sixes help Comilla Victorians to post a challenging target of 200 against Dhaka Titans in the BPL final on Friday.
Dhaka Dynamites have won the toss and elected to bowl first against Comilla Victorians in the final battle of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 at home of cricket Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur.
Both the franchises have won the tournament previously. Dynamites have four all-rounders, who have between them a small matter of 33 major T20 titles.
The Victorians aren't short of star-power either, with veteran Shahid Afridi, and the in-form Thisara Perera at their command. This mini battle of the allrounders should lend the final an exciting sub-plot, and could prove pivotal in the end.
Comilla Victorians: Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Imrul Kayes (capt), Anamul Haque (wk), Shamsur Rahman, Shahid Afridi, Thisara Perera, Mohammad Saifuddin, Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan, Sanjit Saha
Dhaka Dynamites: Upul Tharanga, Sunil Narine, Rony Talukdar, Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahmudul Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Rubel Hossain, Qazi Onik
