After Andre Russell's magnificent innings in Qualifier 2 against Chattogram Challengers, Rajshahi Royals booked their spot in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2019-20 final match against Khulna Tigers. The two teams had last faced each other in Qualifier 1, wherein Mohammad Amir's 6/17 had sent team Rajshahi packing.
Talking about their head-to-head record in this year's BPL, the two have squared off against each other thrice, with the Tigers having a 2-1 edge over their rivals.
Shifting our focus to the star players who will be in action, the cricket universe will have their eyes on Andre Russell, who had slammed seven sixes in the Qualifier 2 game. Also, Mohammad Irfan has bowled like a champion at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. These two overseas stars will be Rajshahi's main players.

From Khulna Tigers, the onus will be on Mushfiqur Rahim and Rilee Rossouw to shoulder the batting responsibilities. Nazmul Hossain Shanto has seemed unstoppable in the last two games (but his inexperience may cause him to self-destruct in the finale). Among the bowlers, Mohammad Amir and Shahidul Islam can inflict the most damage on the opposition.
Here are all the telecast details for BPL 2019-20's final match.
