Range hitting was at the forefront of the agenda for the Tigers when they trained ahead of their first T20I against England at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Wednesday. Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan along with the likes of Najmul Hossain Shanto, Rony Talukdar, Liton Das, Towhid Hridoy, and Afif Hossain tested their power-hitting skills at the centre-wicket as it became a contest between the batters to see who can clear the field with ease. Journalists, selectors, and the coaching staff had to be watchful, and at times, had to take cover as the batters delivered some lusty blows ahead of their English challenge. Photos: Firoz Ahmed
