In the next two games against Sylhet, Dhaka lost the first match and won the second.
In the next game, Dhaka defeated the champion of last season, Comilla, by 50 runs.
The next match was abandoned due to rain. Dhaka won against Khulna and lost the matches to Barishal and Chattogram.
The Minister Dhaka Group earned 9 points which were not enough to qualify for playoffs, so we will find a solution later in our team predictions.
Minister Dhaka Group Key Players
The Bangladeshi legend player Tamim Iqbal was the best batsman of the team. Mahmudullah, Muhammad Naim, and Shavagata Hom are the other Bangladeshi batters who performed occasionally.
In the bowling lineup, the team experienced Rubel Hossain, a key fast bowler for Dhaka.
In spin bowling, the team has Arafat Sunny, who took many vital wickets.
The team also played Ebadot Hossain and Shafiul Islam in some matches, who were good with their bowling.
In the international players, the team has West Indian star allrounder Andre Russell who was a key player for the team along with Sri Lankan Isuru Udana.
However, the team mostly preferred Afghanistan players in the last season. Afghanistan young spinner Qais Ahmad, opening batter Muhammad Shahzad, middle order batter Najibullah Zadran and fast bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi played for the team.
All these players performed occasionally, but no one was consistent as we further discussed Minister Group Dhaka Team Predictions for the 2023 season.
Minster Dhaka Group Players Predictions for the 2023 Season
The Minister Group Dhaka team had wonderful players with the team last year, but they could not take the team to playoffs. Hence, the team management will surely change something in the team.
Tamim Iqbal was the team’s leading player, along with captain Mahmudullah. Both these players can stay with the team in the upcoming season. The fast bowler Rubel Hossain and spinner Arafat Sunny have secured their positions.
It is evident from the team’s selection process that Dhaka trusts experienced players and fully available players.
In the 2023 BPL season, Pakistani players can play the league if their board allows them. So it means Dhaka can take some players from there.
On the other hand, some Afghani players are still available, along with Andre Russell and Isuru Udana.
Hence, we are confident in our Minister Group Dhaka Team Predictions that Dhaka will not go beyond Pakistan, Bangladesh, and West Indies players.
