Dhaka Dynamites won the toss and chose to bat first.
Dhaka Dynamites is at third place with 13 points after winning six out of their 11 matches in the tournament so far while Rangpur Riders is at fourth place with six victories from their 11 matches in the tournament as well.
According to Cricinfo, “Both teams are through, but this will once again be a tussle to seal a top-two spot. If Dhaka win, the second spot is theirs as they will trump Khulna Titans on the net run rate. But for Rangpur, nothing can now give them an additional chance at making the final. Even a bonus-point win can only take them as far as third position.”
