On 26.11.2020 (Thursday), we are going to watch an exciting clash between Gemcon Khulna and Minister Rajshahi in the 3rd Match of the Bangladesh T20 Cup. The venue of the match is at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka.
In the final over against Fortune Barishal, Khulna had to rely on young all-rounder Ariful Haque despite having services of top-notch players like Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad. They are expected to deliver a better performance in this game and the responsibility lies with their top-order batsmen Imrul Kayes and Anamul Haque.
Minister Rajshahi had a winning start as Mehedi Hasan did wonders with both bat and all. Players like Fazle Mahmud and Najmul Hossain Shanto contributes in the much-needed balance required in the team.
It will be interesting to see the underdogs Rajshahi clash against the star-studded Khulna in this nail-biting match on Thursday.

As seen on the opening day, some off the surface movement is available at the pitch at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium which makes it favourable for the bowlers. A fair amount of swing will be available to the new-ball bowlers which the batsmen will be wary of.
As the pitch is expected to be slow at the later stages of the game, the toss-winning team will most likely opt for batting first.
