In the first half of the Bangabandhu T20 2020, Fortune Barishal didn’t have a great ride. They have lost three out of four games and are ranked fourth in the points table with a -0.156 net run rate. Beximco Dhaka, who is put at the bottom, is in danger of being overthrown. A win in the next game would indeed take Tamim Iqbal and Co to second place.
On the other hand, Gemcon Khulna is ranked second. Also, the 37-run win over Beximco Dhaka will give them confidence as well. But their net run rate of -0.295, the worst among the five participating teams, needs to be changed. Khulna defeated Barishal by four wickets in their previous meeting after Ariful Haque went berserk at death with his six-hitting skills.
With no possibility of rain, the weather will be hazy, but there will be a cloud cover of 23%. The temperature would be approximately 27 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be in the high-30s.
So far in the tournament, the pitch has been balanced. It wasn’t easy to score loads of runs when batting first, and it wasn’t any easier for the chasing team.
On the pitch, both the pacers and spinners have found something. The team that wins the toss can choose to bowl first, although both sides have decent batting units. The average score in the last ten games on this pitch has been 137 runs.

Fortune Barishal vs Gemcon Khulna Dream 11:

Fortune Barishal had just one win in four games, and their batting was terrible. Their Captain Tamim Iqbal also struggled to score big runs at a good pace, and in this big match, their youngsters need to be good.
On the other hand, the batting of Gemcon Khulna was average. Still, their bowling is excellent, and they look like a good team, so Gemcon Khulna is preferred to win in today’s clash considering all variables such as team strengths, success and form.
