THE LOWDOWN

GAZI GROUP CHATTOGRAM

  • · Gazi Group Chattogram come into their opening game of the tournament as they were the one team not to play on the first day of action but they are considered one of the favourites for the Bangabandhu T20 Cup this year.
  • · They will be skippered by Mohammad Mithun for this tournament and their top five batsmen are as strong as any in the competition with Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar opening the batting and Mominul Haque, Mithun and Mosaddek Hossain following them in an impressive middle order.
  • · Their star pick was star pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman and they will look to him for inspiration along with spinner Taijul Islam in what is a pretty talented and strong all-round roster.

BEXIMCO DHAKA

  • · Beximco Dhaka contrived to lose their opening game against Minister Group Rajshahi when they failed to get the eight runs they needed from the final over but there were plenty of positives for them to take.
  • · Their bowling was excellent in the powerplay and at the death but they let the game get away from them and hand Rajshahi are route back into the game in the middle over, while their run chase was solid but they ultimately failed at the death after doing much of the hard work.
  • · It is hard to see them making many changes for this game but they will hope some more of their players can step up and make a greater contribution at key moments which was all they were lacking in the opening game that they should have won.

THE PREDICTION

Beximco Dhaka will still be wondering how they managed to lose that opening game against Rajshahi but they have the opportunity to bounce back against Gazi Group Chattogram who play their first match here. The Chattogram side have plenty of star quality but much will depend on whether they can hit the ground running which has been an issue for some of the star players in the tournament so far. They certainly have the edge in quality on paper but the fact Dkaha have had some time in the middle may just give them the advantage in what should be another tight game.
