Gemcon Khulna vs Gazi Group Chattogram Prediction, Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Bangabandhu T20 2020, Match 5

Shakib Al Hasan hasn't looked at his best, both with bat and ball, and has looked rusty after his comeback.

Match Details:

The 5th match of the Bangabandhu T20 2020 will be played between the Gemcon Khulna and the Gazi Group Chattogram at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.

The match is scheduled to start at 01:30 PM Local Time (01:00 PM IST).


Gemcon Khulna bailed themselves out of jail against the Fortune Barishal courtesy Ariful Haque’s power-hitting. However, Minister Group Rajshahi gave them the first taste of defeat as Mahmudullah’s men lost by six wickets. Their star-studded middle-order has faltered and their bowling hasn’t been up to the mark either. They hanging in the third spot in the points table.

They are next scheduled to lock horns with the Gazi Group Chattogram in the first of Saturday’s doubleheader. Chattogram, on the other hand, are brimming confidence, beating Beximco Dhaka by nine wickets, bowling them out for 88. They won the match with as many as 55 deliveries to spare. Their bowling is in exemplary form and Khulna’s indifferent batting has to fight their way out.
