Bangladesh T20 captain Mahmudullah is suffering from back pain, as a result of which he missed the warm up game against Oman A team in Oman Friday.

Liton Das led the side in his absence as Bangladesh XI side strolled to a 60-run win.

Alongside the discomfort, Mahmudullah's back has swollen a bit but Bangladesh team management is hoping that the all-rounder will be back in the side for their first official practice match against Sri Lanka Tuesday.

The Tigers will travel to the UAE Sunday at 8pm Bangladesh time, and will be accompanied by Oman and Sri Lanka in the same flight.

After the Sri Lanka game, Bangladesh will take on Ireland in their second and last official practice match Thursday before locking horns with Scotland in their opening first round clash next week.

All-rounder Shakib al Hasan will join the team Sunday while left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman has already reported to the team hotel Saturday after their stint in the ongoing Indian Premier League T20.
