The Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur -- new home of Bangladesh cricket -- will host its first National Cricket League match today when Dhaka take on visiting Sylhet in the sixth round limited-overs match.

The Mirpur venue, originally a football stadium, is being turned into an exclusive cricket stadium and is still under construction. However, the ground has been prepared long ago and this will not be the first cricket match here.

Dhaka are now second in the table after suffering their maiden defeat in the previous round following a four-match winning run.

Table-toppers Rajshahi, who have won all their five games, will play their first away match in the competition when they meet Barisal at the Barisal Stadium. In the other match, Chittagong are pitted against Khulna at the Khulna Divisional Stadium.

The first-class fixture will start tomorrow.

I am afraid the pitch will be helpful for pace bowlers, in NCL it was proved so. ON the other hand Khulna is pretty good for batsman. Probably it will be better to play in Khulna, Bogra and CDS untill the pitch becomes batting friendly.

That is not really sure yet. The NCL can be played there even if just the pitches are ready... but ICC won't approve it as a Venue untill other supporing facilities like media etc are finished. If they can get the necessary ones done before Aussies come... then maybe.

Arranging BD-Aus matches on Mirpur!!! Don't think BCCB is adventurous enough to do that. Most probably, Fatullah will be the Dhakaian venue for the Aussie series.
