The Dhaka Dynamites, led by Shakib Al Hasan, ended as the runners-up of the 2017/18 Bangladesh Premier League and fell short of title defence due to a blitz from Chris Gayle. The Dynamites have ensured they retained their core T20 stars in the form of Shakib Al Hasan, Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine. They also roped in Hazratullah Zazai who has been in some serious form in the APL T20 and T10 league.

They will be up against the Rajshahi Kings who have some consistent T20 performers on their side. They will be led by the young Mehidy Hasan Miraz. The Rajshahi franchise has the likes of Laurie Evans and Ryan Ten Doeschate who have done well in the 2018 T20 Blast. Their bowling attack comprises of the left-arm seamers Mustafizur Rahman and Isuru Udana who are good at deceiving the batsmen with slower balls and cutters.
