After losing to Sylhet Sixers in the very first match of the tournament Dhaka came back very strongly.They played 3 matches won 2 and lost 1. Shahid Afridi played an extraordinary innings in the last match against Sylhet Sixers and showed that he has still the potential as a good all rounder.First he collapsed Sylhet with ball and then banged monstrous sixes into the stands with bat in the later half of the match while chasing.On the other side Khulna Titans are also having the same statistics just like Dhaka.They played 3 matches won 2 and lost 1. Both teams are at 2 and 4 positions at present in BPL 2017. The winning team of this match will climb up the ladder. Both teams are looking strong and we can expect some tough fight between them.
Sher-e-Bangla – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Clear and no chances of rain
A slowish surface is expected to be prepared for this match. Spinners are likely to get good grip and turn off the deck.
Dhaka will be on high confidence after their brilliant performance against Sylhet Sixers. They have very strong batting line up with players like Lewis, Pollard, Delport and few others. Afridi’s comeback added very good strength to the team. Dhaka has a balanced team with good hitters, all rounders and bowlers.
Dhaka Dynamites Probable XI
Evin Lewis, Shahid Afridi, Cameron Delport, Shakib Al Hasan, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Jahurul Islam, Mosaddek Hossain, Abu Hider Rony, Mohammad Shahid and Khaled Ahmed
Khulna Titans too have wins in their last couple of games but they do not have enough quality and strength in spin department.Their batting is completely depending upon Chadwick Walton, Michael Klinger and Rilee Rossouw. Skipper Mahmudullah and Brathwaite are known for their names. These two are very important for Khulna in middle order. They can play their own game and nobody can stop them if once they settle. Abu Jayed was sensational last time with his four-wicket haul and the Titans will want the fast bowler to take early wickets against the Dynamites. For Titans skipper Mahmudullah is only available option in spin department.
Khulna Titans Probable XI
Mahmudullah (c), Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Chadwick Walton (wk), Michael Klinger, Rilee Rossouw, Carlos Brathwaite, Ariful Haque, Jofra Chioke Archer, Mosharraf Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Abu Jayed
Prediction : The Dynamites have the psychological edge of having beaten the Titans in their previous two encounters so Dhaka has upper hand and they are favourites to seal this match.
