In a rematch of Qualifier 1 of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020, Gemcon Khulna will square off against Gazi Group Chattogram in the Final. The game will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday.
Gazi Group Chattogram finished the league stage as the table toppers. They entered the championship game by defeating Beximco Dhaka in Qualifier 2. The Mahmudullah-led side will be determined to take revenge for their defeat in Qualifier 1 to Gemcon Khulna and win the prestigious Bangabandhu T20 Cup.
Gemcon Khulna, on the other hand, finished the league stage in the second position. They earned a direct entry into the championship game after defeating Gazi Group Chattogram in Qualifier 1 and will be hoping for a similar result in the Final.
But, GKH have an intimidating task ahead as they will be missing the services of their star player Shakib Al Hasan, who has left the camp due to family reasons.
With the Bangabandhu T20 Cup title at stake, both teams will look to put in their best efforts to be crowned champions.
