The opening day of the Super League of the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division T20 Cricket League was rained out Saturday.

The first match of the Super League between Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club and Gazi Group Cricketers was suspended. Only nine balls were bowled before rain came in at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

The other two matches between Prime Bank Cricket Club and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club; Abahani and Mohammedan were also suspended.

“All matches of the Super League and Relegation League, which had been set for Saturday, will take place Sunday,” Ali Hossain, member secretary of the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis, told UNB.

Twelve clubs are participating in Dhaka League; and six of them – Prime Bank, Abahani, Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club, Gazi Group Cricketers, Mohammedan and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club – have marched to the Super League.

Like the first Super League encounter, the first match of the Relegation League was also suspended after the toss. The match was slated to be played between Legends of Rupganj and Partex Sporting Club.
