Match Preview

BPL 2019-20 season is up and running with impressive performances in each game and it was also marred by a lot of controversies too. Both Cumilla Warriors and Dhaka Platoon are in a similar position in the points table and are being separated only by the NRR.

Ironically, both teams lost their previous encounter against Chattogram Challengers by 16 runs despite scoring 200+ runs. Dhaka Platoon defeated Comilla Warriors by 20 runs in their previous encounter and will have a mental edge over their opposition.

Winning Prediction

Comilla Warriors and Dhaka Platoon have been batting heavy teams so far with their bowlers giving too many runs to the opposition in all the matches. Both teams have a pretty inexperienced bowling attack. Comilla Warriors pips Dhaka Platoon in the attacking power slightly with more recognized batsmen and we predict them to win this match.

Comilla Warriors will win the match!
