The Duke of Norfolk’s XI consists of former English players and county cricketers. The captain Chris Adams, 46, has played his last first-class game in 2008. He has the experience of playing five ODIs and five Tests for England. It will be him leading the side against Bangladesh.
Bangladesh are going to this match without captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, who returned home due to wife’s illness. But the rest of the players will work on adjusting to the conditions. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) media manager Rabeed Imam has said that there woll be more of a festive environment in this warm-up game.
“Bangladesh will definitely take this match as part of their preparation. They will work on getting adjusted to the conditions there. But it will be more of a festive environment. There’s plenty of tradition involved with this team. A number of foreign teams have played in this ground. South Africa A will be going there soon,” said Rabeed.
