Rain Delay
Well, the match has been abandoned with a single ball being bowled. It's me, Farzan signing off on behalf of my colleague Sarthak. Tune into Sportskeeda at 1:00 PM for the coverage of the upcoming Dhaka T20 game. Until then, Bye!
UPDATE: Match delayed due to rain
Hello and welcome to Match 7 of the Dhaka Premier League T20 as the Abahani Limited face Old Dohs Sports Club in Savar. Abahani Limited are second on the points table as they started off the tournament with a victory while rain played spoilsport when the Old Dohns Sports Club played their first game of the tournament. We hope to promises to be a cracker of a contest as I, Sarthak S Karkhanis along with my colleague and fellow textpert Mohammad Farzan take you through the LIVE action of the match. But before that here is a preview of what you can expect in the next four hours...

Abahani won their first match of the tournament by 7 wickets in a rain-curtailed match where the second innings could just see 7 overs. The team boasts of the likes of Mushfiqur Rahim. The wicket-keeper batter scored 26-ball 38, which included 3 boundaries and a maximum. The Bangladesh legend has runs under his belt and is a popular choice in the fantasy leagues as well. The other batters haven't really got time at the crease but if we witness 20 overs, then surely we will see a lot of batters in action. Among the bowlers, Taijul Islam was the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets in his 4-over spell as he conceded just 12 runs. The young Bangladesh star Mehedi Hasan will be another player to watch out for with his off-spin. 

Old Dohs Sports Club posted 171 in their first innings before rain a final say in that encounter. All the top 4 batters had decent contributions. Mahmudul Hasan added 78 runs in 55 balls and notched up an 81-run stand for the 2nd stand with opener Rakin Ahmed. The bowlers didn't get a chance to ply their trade and will be itching to go out on the field and scalp some wickets. 

Both the teams have enough firepower and if the rain stays away from this encounter, we expect some spectacular action from Bangladesh.
