Match 2 of the Bangladesh T20 Cup features a blockbuster clash between Fortune Barishal and Gemcon Khulna at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Tuesday.
While this game does feature two of the strongest teams in this competition, it also marks the return of Shakib Al Hasan to competitive cricket after a considerable period of time. He will be turning out for the Gemcon Khulna side that will be led by Mahmudullah Riyad. Apart from the two all-rounders, Khulna boasts of a power-packed batting unit with the likes of Al Amin Hossain and Nazmul Islam leading the bowling attack.
Their opponents, Fortune Barishal, also have an equally competent team led by Tamim Iqbal, who showed glimpses of his ability in the recently concluded PSL playoffs. With the duo of Afif Hossain and Mehedi Miraz also set to line up alongside him, another entertaining game beckons between the two sides.
Both teams will be looking to start on the winning note with Barishal heading into this game as slight underdogs. Either way, we should be in for another entertaining game to close out a promising opening day in the Bangladesh T20 Cup.

A decent batting track awaits the sides at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. Although there should be some swing and turn off the surface, the batsmen should feel at ease in the middle. The pitch shouldn't change much as the game progresses, with dew expected to play a role in the second innings.
