It is after a two-year gap that the Bangladesh Premier League is all set to resume, and the Chattogram Challengers would be taking on the Fortune Barishal in the first game at Dhaka. The franchise names have changed, and the teams have also seen several changes in their composition compared to the last edition. This would make the tournament very exciting for the fans as well as the players. 

Both sides would be under pressure to get off to a good start in the season and this is expected to make the game exciting. There is good batting firepower in the two camps, and we expect to see a high-scoring contest on a flat wicket at Dhaka. It will be interesting to see which of the two sides starts with a win as both have a good bunch of players in their camps. 

Chattogram Challengers Preview

Mehidy Hasan would like to make a good start to the tournament. His side isn’t blessed with as many experienced players as his opponents have and Hasan shall look to make the best use of resources available. He is leading some exciting players who have proved their talent in the past and like to see a spirited effort from the team and register their first points for the season. 

Sabbir Rahman and Chadwick Walton are good hitters of the ball, and the side would like to see an electrifying start from them in this game. In the middle order, the side would look for runs from the bats of Ryad Emrit, Benny Howell, and Mehidy Hasan who have lots of experience in this format of the game. Zakir Hasan, Naeem Islam, and Afif Hossain add to the batting power down the order. 

Mehidy Hasan shall have to lead the attack from the front and expect to grab early wickets sharing the new ball with Nasum Ahmed. Enamul Haque and Shoriful Islam are emerging players, and they would have to take on the powerful batting line-up that Barishal has. Emrit, Afif Hossain, and Naeem Islam add good variety to this attack.

Mehidy Hasan (c), Chadwick Walton (wk), Sabbir Rahman, Ryad Emrit, Benny Howell, Shoriful Islam, Enamul Haque, Afif Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, Naeem Islam, Zakir Hasan

Fortune Barishal Preview

Shakib Al Hasan would be confident about the prospects of his side in this game. He is leading a star-studded side that has some of the best players in this format of the game. Hasan would want his players to play their natural game here and not become complacent. A win here would set the campaign in the right order for the tournament favorites. 

In Chris Gayle, they have one of the best openers in the world and he would look to provide a good start with Najmul Hossain Shanto. Shakib brings in experience to the middle order and he would look to add runs with Nurul Hasan and Salman Hossain. Dwayne Bravo is a great finisher, and he adds solidity to this batting line-up with Ziaur Rahman. 

Taijul Islam and Mujeeb Ur Rahman shall look to grab early wickets as the Challengers have a bit of weakness at the top. Shakib will look to bring his experience to play in the middle overs along with Dwayne Bravo. Mehedi Hasan Rana, Nayeem Hasan, and Rahman make this a very strong attack.

Fortune Barishal Predicted Playing XI:

Shakib Al Hasan (c), Nurul Hasan (wk), Chris Gayle, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Dwayne Bravo, Taijul Islam, Ziaur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan Rana, Nayeem Hasan, Salman Hossain

Weather Conditions

There would be odd clouds over Dhaka on January 21. The wicket is expected to be slow and there would be the turn for the spinners. Batsmen would have to be watchful on this track and play to the merit of the ball. The average first innings score here is 144 and the side batting first would be happy to set 160 or more on the board.

Venue Details

The pitch at Shere Bangla National Stadium is known for being flat and batsmen have done well here in the past being able to play their strokes freely. Fast bowlers tend to have a tough time on this track with little to aid them. Spinners enjoy the track as the odd ball can stop and surprise the batsmen.

Toss: To Bowl

It is the first game at this wicket after a long gap and the ball is expected to move a bit in the early overs. Both sides would find it difficult to bat here first and, in the past, we have seen sides winning more games chasing scores. Hence the side winning the toss in this game would have no hesitation in opting to bowl first.

Chattogram Challengers are a young team led by a bold captain. They will have to make the best out of the resources they have. Their bowlers would have to play a very important role for the side to win this game considering the batting firepower Fortune Barishal have. On the other hand, Barishal have all bases covered. Their batting is powerful, and the bowling attack has lots of experience and this would make them favorites in this game.
