The match 5 of Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020 will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, played between Gemcon Khulna and Gazi Group Chattogram. The match will be kicked off on 28th November (Saturday) at 13:30 (GMT+6).
Gemcon Khulna bailed themselves out of prison in the match 2 against the Fortune Barishal courtesy of power-hitting of Ariful Haque. But Minister Group Rajshahi gave them the first taste of loss as the men of Mahmudullah lost by 6 wickets. Their star-studded middle-order has faltered and neither their bowling hasn’t been up to the mark. They are hanging on the points table in the third place.
They are next scheduled to lock horns in the first of Saturday’s doubleheader against Gazi Group Chattogram. On the other side, Gazi Group Chattogram is brimming with confidence, beating Beximco Dhaka by 9 wickets, bowling them out for 88. With as many as 55 deliveries to spare, they won the game. Their bowling is in outstanding form and the indifferent batting of Khulna has to fight their way out.
There are no chances of rainfall with a bit of sunshine around in the first game. During the encounter, there will be 5% cloud cover. The temperature will stay around 28 degrees Celsius. With the numbers in the mid-30s, the humidity would not be on the higher side either.
So far, the pitch has been a sporty one with a bit for everyone. But the track has also become easier to bat, especially in the 2nd half. Chasing should be the sides’ way forward. It is expected that the spinners will get quite a bit of support, bearing in mind that the game will be played under natural lights.

After more than a year, Shakib Al Hasan is making a comeback and he has looked rusty with both the ball and the bat. You may have him as a normal player, even though it’s a brave call, and delegate the position of the multipliers to other in-form players. It is predicted that Gazi Group Chattogram will be the winner of this game! Place your bets now at baji.live!
