The match 13 of Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020 will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, played between Beximco Dhaka and Gazi Group Chattogram. The match will be kicked off on 6th December (Sunday) at 13:30 (GMT+6).
Gazi Group Chattogram remains as the only undefeated side in the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup. The side, led by Mohammad Mithun, is also the best of the 5 participating sides, with a Net Run Rate (NRR) of 1,395. They had a bit of a stutter in their previous game against Minister Group Rajshahi, but won the game by one run. In the following round, another win will validate their berth.
In the first of Sunday’s doubleheaders in Mirpur, Gazi Group Chattogram will look to lock horns with Beximco Dhaka. On the other hand, Mushfiqur Rahim’s Beximco Dhaka, after back-to-back victories after their four-match losing streak, must be brimming with confidence. In their previous match, they turned over the Minister Group Rajshahi, who are now positioned 4th in the points table, by 25 runs.
With the temperature staying around 27 Degrees Celsius, the playing conditions will be hazy. The humidity level will be in the high 30s for the most part. The area of concern is the quality of the air, which is dangerous.
The Mirpur pitch has played a tad indifferently at times. Scores of more than 150 were reached quite a few times. Sides have also begun to defend scores, so batting first should be the way forward.
Average first innings score: 143 (12 games in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup)

As a multiplier, Mustafizur Rahman is an obvious option. He not only gives points through wickets, but also via the economy and maiden overs. According to our cricket expert’s predictions, Gazi Group Chattogram will win this game. Let’s back the team at Baji now!
