Match 9 of the Bangladesh T20 Cup features Minister Rajshahi taking on Gazi Group Chattogram at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Wednesday.
Minister Rajshahi has been fairly impressive in the Bangladesh T20 Cup this season, winning two of their three games. Riding on the fortunes of Najmul Hossain Shanto at the top of the order, Rajshahi look well-set for a playoff spot. However, they could face a tough outing against Bangladesh T20 Cup table-toppers Gazi Group Chattogram.
Gazi Group Chattogram are yet to lose a game in the Bangladesh T20 Cup, with Mustafizur Rahman starring with the ball. Adding Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar's exploits to the equation only sweetens the deal for Chattogram, who will be looking to strengthen their stranglehold on the top spot with a win on Wednesday.
They enter this Bangladesh T20 Cup game as the clear favourites but could have their hands full against a well-balanced Minister Rajshahi side. Nevertheless, another riveting contest beckons as the fight for the top spot intensifies in the tournament.

Match: Minister Rajshahi vs Gazi Group Chattogram, Match 10
Date: 2nd December 2020, at 6:00 PM IST
Venue: Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, Dhaka.
With this being the second game of the day in the Bangladesh T20 Cup, the pitch could be on the slower side, which would bring the spinners into play.
The pacers are likely to get some help with the new ball, and the batsmen may have to bide their time at the start of their innings. Dew could play a role in the second innings, which might entice both captains to chase if they win the toss.
However, the pitch conditions shouldn't change too much during the Bangladesh T20 Cup game, and 140-150 could be a competitive total at the venue.
