Chattogram Challengers would meet the Sylhet Sunrisers in the 12th game of Bangladesh Premier League 2022. Both sides come here with big defeats, and it would be an important game for them. The Challengers went down against the Khulna Tigers in their previous game while the Sylhet Sunrisers suffered a crushing defeat against Minister Group Dhaka.
The Sylhet Sunrisers’ batting line-up hasn’t delivered yet and barring the individual brilliance of Lendl Simmons in the last game most others have struggled with their form. The Challengers have played better so far, and they would aim to regain the top spot on the points table with a win in this game.
Mehidy Hasan’s side went down by 6 wickets against the Khulna Tigers in the last game. Hasan would be upset with the show from their middle-order after the side had got a good start. Their bowlers also failed to apply pressure. Hasan would look to regain the top spot on the points table with a win here.
Kennar Lewis continues to struggle, and the side would need a good start from him and Will Jacks. Afif Hossain played a brilliant knock in the last game, and he would aim to do well here with Hasan and Sabbir Rahman who missed out in the last game leading to the loss. Benny Howell is a good hitter of the ball, and he would look to add quick runs along with Naeem Islam and Shamim Hossain.
Mehidy Hasan and Shoriful Islam form a good new-ball pair, and that side would expect early wickets from them as the Sunrisers have a strong top order. Howell and Nasum Ahmed come here with good shows behind their backs, and this would make them confident. The side would also expect Rejaur Rahman Raja to make good use of the conditions at this venue.

Mosaddek Hossain’s side received a thrashing at the hands of Minister Group Dhaka in the last game. The Sunrisers skipper would be upset with the 9-wicket loss after his side had put up 175 runs on the board. His bowlers would have to deliver the goods in this game to lift the spirits and move up on the points table.
Lendl Simmons hit an electrifying hundred in the last game and the side would expect a good show from him and his opening partner Anamul Haque. In the middle order Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Mithun, and Colin Ingram are experienced players and they shall have an important role to play. The side would also expect runs from Ravi Bopara, Alaudin Babu, and Sohag Gazi.
Their bowling attack was destroyed in the last game and it would take a lot of self-motivation for the bowlers to turn it around here. Taskin Ahmed and Gazi would have to bowl in the right areas with the new ball. Hossain, Sunzamul Islam, and Babu were taken to the cleaners and they have to come out of it. Bopara and Muktar Ali add to the bowling options for the side.

The skies over Chattogram would be clear on January 29 and we expect to see a high-scoring game on a flat surface. Batsmen would have to be watchful as occasionally the wicket can surprise them. The side that bats first in the game will have to eye a score of around 175 runs to feel comfortable.
Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram has something for the bowlers. Fast bowlers see assistance with the new ball, though the small size of the ground does offer batsmen plenty of scoring opportunities. Spinners have also enjoyed a good record here with the rough surface making the ball grip and turn.
Both the games played here so far have been won by sides chasing the score. It is an evening game and dew would play a role in the second innings where bowling would become a challenge. The side winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling first in this game.
Sylhet Sunrisers would have to come out of the shock defeat in the last game. Their bowlers took a beating and their batsmen also haven’t looked in the best of form for most parts of the game. Chattogram Challengers come into this game with a loss but the side has had more players in form and this would make them favorites here.
