Bangladesh bat and pick Naim for Soumya
Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah chose to bat against Oman in Al Amerat. He admitted that dew is a factor as they looked to defend a big score. He also said that they want to build more partnerships.
For the home side, fast bowler Fayyaz Butt came in for Khawar Ali, the top-order batter and legspinner.
Bangladesh brought in Mohammad Naim to replace Soumya Sarkar. It was a big surprise when Soumya played ahead of Naim against Scotland. Coach Russell Domingo had later said that Soumya was a sixth bowling option but now that Mahmudullah was fit to bowl, they would go back to Naim, who has been a regular in the Bangladesh side in the recent T20Is.
