Match 4 of the Bangladesh T20 Cup pits Gazi Group Chattogram against Beximco Dhaka at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Thursday.
Beximco Dhaka didn't have the best of starts to their campaign, as they fell short against Minister Rajshahi. Although Mushfiqur Rahim and Co. did show glimpses of their ability, they were undone by Mehedi Hasan with both bat and ball. With a well-balanced unit, Dhaka will be looking to bounce back with a better performance on Thursday.
They will have their task cut out against Gazi Group Chattogram, who come into the Bangladesh T20 Cup with perhaps the strongest side in the competition. Apart from Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar, Chattogram also boast of the services of Mustafizur Rahman, who is arguably the best pace bowler in the country. With a good blend of youth and experience in their side, Chattogram are backed by many to go far in this competition.
They will fancy their chances of a win against Dhaka, given their greater depth in the batting unit. However, one cannot write off Mushfiqur Rahim's team, especially with the likes of Mohd Naim and Sabbir Rahman itching to get off the mark as far as the points table is concerned.
With both teams looking for their first win of the tournament, another entertaining game of cricket beckons in Dhaka.

Match: Gazi Group Chattogram vs Beximco Dhaka, Match 4
Date: 26th November 2020, at 6:00 PM IST
Venue: Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka
With this game being the second of the day at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, the pitch could be on the slower side, bringing the spinners into play. There should also be considerable swing with the new ball to keep the batsmen on their toes.
The batters will need to bide their time in the middle before going big, and this ploy could be used quite often in the tournament. Both teams will ideally want to bat first, with 150-160 being par at this venue.
