Both Gemcon Khulna vs Minister Group Rajshahi had won their respective first matches. Even as the all-round display of Mahedi Hasan led Rajshahi to a two-run win over Beximco Dhaka, the six-hitting spree of Ariful Haque pulled Khulna over the line against Fortune Barishal by four wickets. Yet the two teams have a lot of potholes to fill, considering the victories in their openers.
Khulna would not have managed 19 runs from their last over without Ariful’s sheer brilliance. Rajshahi would also get off to a winning start if not concerning Mahedi’s excellent bowling in the last over. Their middle-order collapse has left a lot to be desired for Rajshahi. However, the fact that they achieved victories should give them a lot of faith in the future.
There is zero chance of rain, but a decent amount of cloud cover will be present. With the temperature about the 29 degrees Celsius mark, the weather won’t be on the higher side. The humidity will be in the high-30s for the most part.
The pitch has been helpful for the bowlers due to some movement being available off the surface of Sher-e-Bangla Stadium. The bowlers with the new-ball should get a fair amount of swing early on, and the batsmen will be wary of this.
With the pitch easing out a bit throughout the game, the batsmen will need to bide their time in the middle and keep the scoreboard moving. Both teams will look to bat first if they win the toss.
