The opening day of the Super League of the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division T20 Cricket League was abandoned due to incessant rain in the capital on Saturday.

The match between Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club and Gazi Group Cricketers was abandoned at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur as Doleshowar scored 8 runs in 1.3 overs without losing a wicket before the rain came in.

The other two matches between Prime Bank Cricket Club and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club; Abahani and Mohammedan were also suspended.  All the matches of the Super League will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium and the matches that were abandoned without a ball being bowled will be rescheduled soon. 

Meanwhile, the relegation league game between Legends of Rupganj and Partex Sporting Club was also called off after the toss at the BKSP-3. Rupganj won the toss and elected to bat but the game did not go underway due to heavy rain. Both teams will now be awarded one point each.
