THE TEAM NEWS
Coach: Khaled Mahmud
Captain: Shakib Al Hasan
- One of the favourites for the Bangladesh Premier League, Dhaka Dynamites, produced the most impressive performance in the opening round of matches as they destroyed the Rajshahi Kings by 83 runs after they smashed a superb 189/5 in their 20 overs.
- Big-hitting opening batsman Hazratullah Zazai hit 78 from just 41 balls to lay the foundations for the win and all-rounder Shuvagata Hom hit 38 from just 14 balls as it was some of their lesser known stars that combined to lead the way for them.
- There is every chance that they name an unchanged team for this match with Zazai, Narine, Pollard and Russell claiming the four overseas places unless they decide to rotate with the latter two most likely to be rested, but they will likely stick with the winning formula for this one.
Coach: Mahela Jayawardene
- Khulna Titans looked favourites for long spells in their match against Rangpur Riders but they fell eight runs short as they could not build on the excellent opening partnership of 90 in 11 overs by Junaid Siddique and Paul Stirling.
- Their bowling was particularly disappointing as Zahir Khan and Carlos Brathwaite could not really impact the game as one would expect along with the local bowlers so that is one area they simply have to improve against the dangerous Dynamites.
- Ali Khan could be one player to make way if any of their other overseas players are available with David Wiese one candidate to come into the side to add depth with both bat and ball to the side.
The Dynamites were hugely impressive in their opening match and it is difficult to see them losing based on that display. The Titans were not great with the ball and if they do not improve, they could be blown away by this Dynamites batting line-up. The Dhaka outfit have the greater quality in all facets of the game and barring complacency, should rack up a second win in a row here.
