The runners-up of the previous edition, Dhaka Dynamites started the season with a big win as the star players on their side stepped up in the first match. The opening pair of Hazratullah Zazai and Sunil Narine maintained the Dynamites scoring at 11+ an over during their century partnership. Their stand played a key role in helping the team finish on 189 despite slowing down in the second half. They will be up against the Khulna Titans in the second match.

The Mahmudullah-led Titans lost to Rangpur Riders in the first game which was a thriller. During the chase of 170, the Khulna team got off to a flyer before the Riders bounced back in the middle-overs and clinched a close win. The Titans will be hoping to put on an improved show in the second match. Both the teams have got a break after their opening match and will have enough time to analyze their performances and the tracks to be used.
