The Chattogram Challengers would be up against Fortune Barishal in the 16th game of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022. Chattogram Challengers went down against the Comilla Victorians in the last game and have to win this one. The Fortune Barishal come here with a thrilling win against the Khulna Tigers.
The Fortune Barishal have won the last two games and the side would be high on confidence here. They had won against Challengers earlier and shall look to take inspiration from that win. It will be interesting to see how the middle order performs for Challengers as they have been down on form.
Naeem Islam would be upset with the performance of his side in the last game. On a good batting surface, the side did poorly and went down by 52 runs against the Comilla Victorians. Their bowlers also failed to bowl tight lines in the game. Having lost against Fortune Barishal earlier in the season, Islam would look to even it out here.
Kennar Lewis has been in poor form and the side would need him to provide a good start with Will Jacks who has done well. In the middle order, the side would look for runs from Afif Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, and Mehidy Hasan who went out cheaply in the last game. They have good strength down the order with Islam and Benny Howell in the side.
Nasum Ahmed has looked in good form with the ball, but he would need support from Shoriful Islam in this game. Mehidy Hasan bowled poorly in the last game, and he must bring his experience to play here. Rejaur Rahman Raja, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, and Howell will have to bowl in the right areas for the side to win here.

It has been back-to-back wins for Shakib Al Hasan’s side, and they are looking good. They defeated the Khulna Tigers by 6 runs in the last game. Hasan would be proud of the way his bowlers have played so far but he would expect a better show from his batsmen who look in poor shape.
The side would expect a good show from Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo who went out cheaply in the last game. The middle-order has good strength with Shakib leading from the front. He would aim to add runs with Najmul Hossain Shanto and Towhid Hridoy. In Nurul Hasan and Ziaur Rahman, the side has good hitters of the ball.
Mujeeb ur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan form a very strong bowling pair for the side, and they would look to make good use of the conditions in this game. Shafiqul Islam will look to do well with the new ball in this game after leaking runs in the previous one. Bravo, Ziaur Rahman, and Mehedi Hasan Rana will have to bowl in the right areas.

The skies over Chattogram would be clear on February 1 and we are likely to see a high-scoring game. Batsmen have been playing on the up on this track and bowlers have struggled in previous games. The side batting first would need 180 runs to defend it successfully under the dew factor.
Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram is a good venue for this format. Fast bowlers who have variations have done well at this ground. Batsmen enjoy batting here as the fast outfield offers them plenty of scoring opportunities. Spinners can turn the ball sharply and have enjoyed a good record.
Though sides have won more games batting first it is an evening game and dew would play a role. Bowling in the second innings with a wet ball would be a challenge on this track. Hence, we believe the side that wins the toss in this game is likely to opt for bowling first.
Chattogram Challengers have shown signs of struggle in the last few games. They would need runs from their middle-order which hasn’t been the case for the side in all the games they have played. Fortune Barishal have won the last two games and had defeated the Challengers earlier and this would make them favorites in this game.
