Gemcon Khulna and Beximco Dhaka were not very consistent. In their first game, Khulna was rescued by Ariful Haque, but they lost their next two matches against the Rajshahi Minister Group and the Chattogram Gazi Group. They were bowled out for 86 in 17.5 overs in their last game. Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyadh as their main firepower haven’t given all out.
Khulna will be facing Beximco Dhaka, who are in even more horrible form, in their next match in the first of Monday’s doubleheader. Dhaka, led by Mushfiqur Rahim, are the cellar-dwellers at the moment, losing both of their games. They still have the worst -2.025 net run rate. Dhaka will attempt to make a comeback with a victory against an out-of-form Khulna unit.
Dhaka’s weather conditions would be pleasant enough. The temperature would be about the 24 degrees Celsius mark without a chance of rain. With the numbers in the high-70s, the moisture would be on the higher side. In the second half, there’ll be dew.
In the Bangladesh T20 Cup, with this being the second game of the day the pitch may be on the slower side.
While it is anticipated that the spinners will have a significant impact, dew is likely to come into play, which could make it hard for them to grip the ball. Wickets in hand would be crucial at the back end of their innings, and both sides like to go high.
150 in the Bangladesh T20 Cup game could be an adequate performance, with both sides likely to chase first.

Beximco Dhaka will not head into this game as favourites, as Gemcon Khulna’s depth stands out in both departments. As two valuable points are up for grabs at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, we can expect a tightly-fought rivalry. Let’s back Gemcon Khulna to win this match against the Beximco Dhaka with BAJI now!
