Cricket Match Predictions: Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020 - Beximco Dhaka vs Minister Group Rajshahi - Match 1
The 1st match of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020 will be played between Beximco Dhaka and Minister Group Rajshahi at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka.
The first player to be picked by Beximco Dhaka was wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim and he remains the biggest one in the ranks of Dhaka. Rahim last played competitive cricket as part of Najmul XI in the BCB President's Cup and scored two half-centuries in his last three matches of the tournament.
Mohammad Naim and Tanzid Hasan are likely to open the batting for Dhaka while Sabbir Rahman and Yasir Ali will be the team's main batsmen in the middle order.
With the ball, the onus will be on the experienced Mehedi Hassan Rana and Rubel Hossain to do the bulk of the damage. They will be assisted by Abu Hider and Nayeem Hasan.
