Khulna and Rajshahi squared off against each other twice in the group stage, winning one game apiece.
A lot of star players will be in action in this game and all eyes will be on Caribbean superstar Andre Russell, who will lead the Rajshahi-based franchise.
Najmul Hossain Shanto, who stunned Dhaka Platoon with a swashbuckling century last time around, will look to continue in the same vein and hope to get some support from the likes of Rilee Rossouw and Mushfiqur Rahim.
Meanwhile, Mohammad Irfan will try to tie the Khulna batsmen down with his fiery pace bowling.
