Tamim Iqbal will return to the final eleven of Bangladesh as they are all set to lock horns with Pakistan in the league match of Asia Cup, which will be played on March 02, 2016.
If reports are correct, then Abu Hider could replace the injured Mustafizur Rahman. The match will begin at 07.30 PM IST at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.
Final of Asia Cup is just some days away, and teams are all trying their best to find a spot in it. India has already procured a place in this list, and a win in this match will increase the chances of Pakistan reaching the finals.
But things will not be an easy task for the men in green as Bangladesh is no longer a weak side, and they have proved their killing instincts in the last match against Sri Lanka.
Sabbir Rahman, who hit a brilliant 80 off 54 balls, will be under the spotlight today. The young man, in all probabilities, will test the sharpness of Pakistan bowling line up, and if succeeds in tackling the daring pace attack led by Mohammad Amir, then things will be easy for Bangladesh.

Pitch in Shere Bangla is supposed to give some advantage for pacers, and this will provide Pakistan, an upper hand over Bangladesh.
Toss will not be quite crucial in this match, as the pitch provides an equal advantage for both batsmen and bowlers. If teams succeed in combating the pace attack in the initial overs, then we can expect a good run feast in the match.
