Key Player

Dwayne Bravo

Dwayne Bravo took only one wicket in the first game and was expensive with the ball. He has retired recently, but with the IPL Auctions coming up Bravo will be hoping to put up a show that keeps him on franchises’ minds.

Tamim Iqbal

Tamim Iqbal is making a comeback after injury and hasn’t played T20 Cricket for a while. He is the key opener for Bangladesh, and the Bangladesh Premier League is a big chance for him to prove that he can still be Bangladesh’s best opener.

Team News

Both sides are likely to go unchanged for the fixture. Andre Russell though may be given a break after a horror dismissal in the first game. He has been going through a rough time of late, and a gap could help him regain the form of his glory days.
