Note : The rotation policy of BPL T20 is giving nightmares to fantasy cricket players but we will have to accept and live with it now. Be careful with your budget.
With 1 win and 1 loss each in Sylhet league, both Chittagong and Khulna are going to begin their Dhaka league. At present the two teams are standing at 5th and 6th positions in points table after completion of first week in season 5 in BPL. Both Chittagong Vikings and Khulna Titans are coming off wins in their previous matches. Chittagong Vikings won by five wickets the last time they faced Khulna Titans in the BPL. Khulna Titans have a better win record (50%) in the tournament than Chittagong Vikings (36%).
Sher-e-Bangla – Dhaka, Bangladesh
no chances of rain and a sunny day
The wicket is expected to favor both the batsmen and the bowlers alike. The toss-winning team might prefer to bowl first here.Pitch will be more helpful for spinners.
Chittagong’s fortune has changed after taking Luke Ronchi into playing XI.The explosive New Zealand opener has been outstanding with the bat so far for the Vikings.Rest of the batsmen completely failed and struggled to score runs quickly and also wasted which Ronchi created. Sarkar and Misbah are the other two dangerous batsmen in their team. However, Sarkar is not good with bat so far and he is looking for his momemtum and Misbah too. Munaraweera has played few good shots but failed to convert them into big ones. Fast bowlers Taskin Ahmed and Luis Reece shared five wickets between them last time. Sikandar Raza will be the go-to spinner for the Vikings.
Titans have a very good team and after beating Sylhet Sixers in their last match, Titans confidence has increased and hoping to continue their same performance against Chittagong also. Klinger was impressive in his first game with a blazzing 47 runs. Khulna has lot of hopes and expectations on him in the upcoming games also.Chadwick Walton and Rilee Rossouw can also be dangerous on their day. Skipper Mahudullah has shone with ball in his previous match against Sylhet and he will be very crucial in these spin friendly conditions.At the same skipper Mahmudullah can hit some monstrous sixes from his bat.The Titans will also need good support from their pacers Shafiul Islam and Jofra Archer.
Chittagong Vikings Probable XI
Luke Ronchi (wk)
Khulna Titans Probable XI
Chadwick Walton (wk)
Jofra Chioke Arche
Prediction : Chittagong are not completely good and they need to improve a lot especially their middle order and Khula,after defeating Sylhet are looking very strong and confident.So Khulna has high chances of winning this game.
