Match Preview

In the 37th game of the season it will be Dhaka Dynamites playing against Chittagong Vikings. The recent run of form has been the same for both the sides as they have lost three games each. The Vikings had defeated the Dynamites earlier in the season and would surely take heart from that win. For Dhaka it is a must win game to remain in playoff contention for rest of the season. 

It remains to be seen if Chittagong Vikings are able to win the second consecutive game against Dynamites or the latter which is the powerhouse of Bangladesh cricket has a better day in the field in the upcoming game. 

Teams Preview

Chittagong Vikings Preview

It can be difficult for a side to recover from three straight losses but Vikings are a better side than their recent form suggests. The team would like to overcome the defeat against Comilla Victorians in the last game and win the next one. 

It was a below par batting performance in the last game against Victorians. Apart from Mohammad Shahzad none of the top order batsmen delivered with Yasir Ali, skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and Cameron Delport not making any signification contribution. Mosaddek Hossian played a good innings towards the end to take the team to a respectable total and the team would hope to bat better in the next game. 

Abu Jayed has been bowling well for the last few games and with Nayeem Hasan forms a good opening pair. Khaled Ahmed also did well in the last game. In Cameraon Delport and Sikandar Raza they have good depth in their bowling which they would like to use and exploit the Dynamites batsmen. 

Chittagong Vikings Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Cameron Delport, Shadman Islam, Mushfiqur Rahim (c), Yasir Ali, Mosaddek Hossain, Sikandar Raza, Najibullah Zadran, Nayeem Hasan, Khaled Ahmed, Abu Jayed .

Chittagong Vikings Actual Playing XI:

Dhaka Dynamites Preview

Dhaka Dynamites had started brilliantly in the season but their performance in the last few games has put them in a spot of bother. The side would want to leave the setbacks behind and win the upcoming game. 

Dynamites batted well in the last game with openers Hazratullah Zazai and Sunil Narine stitching together a good partnership. Rony Talukdar and Shakib Al Hassan have looked in good form. The strength in their batting is the big hitters Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard towards the end of the innings. The team has proven multiple times that they are one of the best batting sides of the tournament. 

The bowlers failed to defend a total of 188 in the last game and were blown over by AD de Villers. Shahadat Hossain and Andre Russell did well but other bowlers went for too many runs. In Shakib and Narine they gave two good spinners who have bowled well earlier in the season and they would be looking forward to making a strong comeback in the next game.

Dhaka Dynamites Predicted Playing XI:

Shahadat Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Kieron Pollard, Rubel Hossain, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Shuvagata Hom, Nurul Hasan (wk), Rony Talukdar, Hazratullah Zazai, Qazi Onik .

Dhaka Dynamites Actual Playing XI:

Andrew Birch, R Talukdar, Rubel Hossain, Mizanur Rahman, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Nurul Hasan, Mahmudul Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Shakib Al Hasan

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

It would be a hazy afternoon at Chittagong on January 30 with temperature around 30 degrees. This will make bowling difficult in the first innings and the batsmen are likely to find it easy as has been the case so far at the ground. There would be some assistance for the fast bowlers towards the end of the innings. 

Venue

Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium has seen several high scoring encounters this season. The pitch is having true bounce and pace which allows the batsmen to play their strokes freely. Fast bowlers are getting assistance from the pitch towards the evening and there is also slight help for the spinners in the second innings. 

Toss: To Bat

Out of the four afternoon games that have been played at this venue the team batting first has won the game thrice. It is a good wicket to bat on during the afternoon as the ball comes on the bat nicely. Teams batting in the second innings have to negotiate more spin and seam movement and hence the side winning the toss would like to bat first on this wicket

Winning Prediction

Chittagong Vikings seem to have hit a rough patch at the most important phase of the season. The team goes into this game with three consecutive losses which is bound to affect their moral. It hasn’t been any different for Dhaka Dynamites either and they have also lost the last three games as well. It is a close call between the two sides but going by the strength of both the sides Dhaka Dynamites would just be nose ahead in the upcoming game.  

Our Prediction is for Dhaka Dynamites to win this game!
