The pitch at the Sher-e-Bangla has always produced some thrilling T20 matches. The batsmen and the spinners get assistance from the wicket while the fast bowlers could also get some help in the initial stage of the match.
Fantasy tips and suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Andre Fletcher has been a match-winner in the shorter formats of the game. The West Indian player has smashed 25 fifties in his T20 career while he was in good touch during the Abu Dhabi T10 League. Chattogram's Nurul Hasan is a little known player hence, it would be better to avoid him for the first match.
Batsmen: Johnson Charles should be the priority pick among the batsmen as he has an excellent T20 record. The 30-year-old will look to establish himself as a match-winner in the BPL. Imrul Kayes can be a reliable option as the Bangladeshi batsman can play a good innings at the top. Avishka Fernando has shown a lot of promise in his brief career while upcoming batsman Mohammad Mithun could emerge as the game-changer.
All-Rounders: Mahmudullah and Imad Wasim are the most talented all-rounders taking part in this game but the team owners can also opt to include Sri Lankan star Jeevan Mendis in the team. From the local players, Sohag Gazi can be a viable option.
Bowlers: Muhammad Musa has shown that he can make an impact if utilised properly. The Pakistani youngster can win the match for his team with quick bowling while Mohammad Sami can be another good pick from the Pakistan contingent. From the spin bowlers, leg-spinner Jubair Hossain can be amongst the wickets.
Captain: Any of the West Indian openers can be a good option for the team's captain but Mahmudullah will be the safest choice for this role. Imad Wasim can be selected as well however, his points may cut off if he comes down the order.
