Exhibition match in Dhaka to celebrate Bangladesh Independence Day


DHAKA, March 25 (AFP) - Bangladesh will play a day-night exhibition match with an international team in Dhaka this week to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the country's independence.

Sports officials said the three Asian giants -- India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka -- have named their players for the match to be played Tuesday as part of Bangladesh's celebrations of independence in 1971 from Pakistan.

Bangladesh celebrates its 30th independence anniversary on Monday.

Young Indian stars Sadagopan Romesh, Shiv Sundar Das, Yuvraj Singh, Hrishikesh Kanitkar and Reetinder Singh Sodhi will join Pakistan's entertaining openers Shahid Afridi and Imran Nazir and speedstar Shabbir Ahmed to play for the International Eleven.

From Sri Lanka former test player Hashan Tillekeratne is expected to lead the international team.

Other possible players include Kenya's star batsman Steve Tikolo, Rohan Gavaskar, son of Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar and former Pakistani test spinner Mohammed Hossain who are currently in Bangladesh playing for local clubs.

Tuesday's limited-overs match would also be a warm-up match for the Bangladesh national squad led by Naimur Rahman which leaves for Zimbabwe on April 1 for its first Test series.

The team is due to play two Tests and three ODI's along with couple of three-day practice matches in Zimbabwe.

Bangladesh was awarded Test status in June last year.
