Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal scored half centuries for their respective sides in the second intra-squad preparation match at the BKSP on Saturday.
Shakib, batting at three for Mahmudullah XI, played a patient knock of 52 runs from 82 balls with the help of one boundary and one over boundary at the BKSP ground number 3 against Tamim XI.
Shakib struggled for runs in the Bangabandhu Twenty20 cup, his first appearance in competitive cricket after serving a year-long ban, as his highest innings was of 28 runs in the nine matches he played for Gemcon Khulna.
Tamim, the one-day international captain of the Tigers, also regained his rhythm as he played a run-a-ball innings of 80 runs with the help of five boundaries and three sixes before exiting the field as retired hurt.
Tamim XI easily chased down the 224-run target, set by Mahmudullah XI after batting first, with eight wickets in hand.
