Saifuddin back as Rajshahi bats first against Khulna

Mohammad Saifuddin is back in the Minister Group Rajshahi squad, recovering from his ankle injury as his side was sent to bat first in their game against Gemcon Khulna in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

To make way for Saifuddin, Mohammad Ashraful was dropped from the side. Apart from bringing back their key all-rounder, who was their first choice in the players’ draft, Rajshahi made another change, including Jaker Ali Anik at the expense of Ebadot Hossain.
