THE LOWDOWN

BEXIMCO DHAKA

  • Beximco Dhaka come into this Banga Nandhu T20 Cup opener with one of the more exciting and youthful teams in the tournament so they will look to skipper Mushfique Rahim for experience and leadership throughout this edition and in this opening game with Minister Group Rajshahi.
  • The bowling attack is particularly exciting with Ruben Hossain and Mehedi Hasan Rana leading the pace attack and they will be well supported by spinners Nayeem Hasan and Nasum Ahmed on the slow Sher-e Bangla track.
  • The batting is lacking a bit of depth and will rely heavily on internationals Mushfiqur and Sabbir Rahman so much will depend on how well they play and if their relatively young batting line-up can perform.

MINISTER GROUP RAJSHAHI

  • In contrast to their Dhaka opponents, Minister Group Rajshahi come into this year’s tournament with an experienced side and they will be led by Najmul Hossain Shanto coming into this opening match.
  • Alongside Hossain Shanto, they can also count on Nurul Hasan, Mehedi Hasan, Rony Talukdar and Mohammad Saifuddin who will help them form a solid batting order with reasonable depth compared to most other teams.
  • Farhad Reza and Ebadat Hossain will lead their bowling attack and they will be supported by spinners Arafat Sunny and Sunzamal Islam who like the batting line-up, possess plenty of experience compared to their youthful opponents.

THE PREDICTION

The Bangabandhu T20 Cup gets under way with a fascinating clash between Beximco Dhaka facing Minister Group Rajshahi. The Dhaka line-up full of young talent that will be keen to make an impact on this year’s tournament while the team from Rajshahi is packed with experienced campaigners. Their greater experience could be key especially at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium while several of their players have been with the BCB's training camps which should help them hit the ground running. With that in mind, the marginal edge in this opening encounter goes to the Minister Group Rajshahi.
