Fortune Barishal vs Gazi Group Chattogram, Bangabandhu T20 Cup
Bottom-of-the-league Fortune Barishal take on high-flying table-toppers Gazi Group Chattogram – who will secure top spot with a win – in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. The match – both teams’ seventh of the tournament – takes place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur, on December 10 and gets underway at 18:30 local time.
Fortune Barishal claimed a stunning win last time out thanks to a Kamrul Islam Rabbi hat-trick and then Parvez Hossain Emon’s record-breaking 42-ball 100*. They successfully chased 221 to beat Minister Group Rajshahi by eight wickets in just 18.1 overs. The phenomenal win was just their second of the tournament, however, and they remain in last place.
Gazi Group Chattogram, meanwhile, got back to winning ways with their fifth win in six games last time out. Set 158 to beat Gemcon Khulna, who are just below them in the table in second place, they got home to win by three wickets off the final ball – Shamsur Rehman hitting 45* from 30 balls. Another win will guarantee first place with a game to spare.
