Match Preview

The business end of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019 is on and Chittagong Vikings have already packed their bags after losing to Dhaka Dynamites in the Eliminator. Defending champions Rangpur Riders on the other hand would now take on the Dynamites in the 2nd Qualifier after having lost to Comilla Victorians in the 1st Qualifier. The sides had clashed in the finals last season and both of them would be eager to win the next game and play Victorians in the Finals. 

It was Even Stevens in the league stages as both the sides won a game each when they locked horns. It now remains to be seen which side walks away with the honors in the next game and makes it to the final. 

Teams Preview

Dhaka Dynamites Preview

The Dhaka Dynamites have stormed into the second qualifier with their empathic win over Chittagong Vikings. The side which was looking in complete mess last week seems to have fixed problems in its batting and bowling which will serve as a huge confidence booster. 

The batting looked solid in the last game with Sunil Narine and Upul Tharanga giving a great start to the side. Rony Talukdar played his part well at No. 3. With Shakib Al Hasan and Nurul Hasan in the middle order and the two West Indian players Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell towards the end of the innings they have a formidable batting line-up. 

It was however their bowling that impressed the most with Sunil Narine taking 4 wickets for just 15 runs in his four overs. Shakib bowled a miserly giving away just 11 runs. The only worrying factor would be Andre Russell and Rubel Hossain's form with the ball before the all-important knock out game.

Dhaka Dynamites Predicted Playing XI:

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

Rangpur Riders Preview

They ended their six-match winning run at the worst possible moment. The last game’s loss against the Comilla Victorians has forced them to play the 2nd Qualifier. They can’t afford to make mistakes anymore and have a good team to make into the finals and defend their title. 

Chris Gayle seems to have peaked for the side at the right time and scored runs in the last game, his second successful performance with the bat. Mehedi Maruf and Mohammad Mithun failed in the last game. Rilee Rossouw has been brilliant all through the season and did well in the last game. With Ravi Bopara, Benny Howell and Nahidul Islam in the batting line-up the side has the firepower to take on their opponents.

Mashrafe Mortaza had a rare bad day in the last game but would look to bowl well in the next game. Nahidul Islam, Shafiul Islam and Sohag Gazid did well in the last game and have showed good form in this season. Skipper Mortaza would want his bowlers to be on the money in the next game.

Rangpur Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Gayle, Mehedi Maruf, Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Ravi Bopara, Benny Howell, Nahidul Islam, Farhad Reza, Sohag Gazi, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Shafiul Islam.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Batsmen have had a great season so far at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. The small size of the ground coupled with fast outfield makes it a paradise for the batsmen. While spinners have also done well in this ground with the winter dew expected to come into play they aren’t likely to dominate much especially in the second innings. 

Toss: To Bowl

The last four games at this venue has been won by sides that have chased a total. Also this being evening game dew is likely to be a factor in the second innings where it will become difficult to grip the ball. The captain who wins the toss in all likelihood will ask the opponents to bat first. 

Winning Prediction

The teams have done well in the season to find themselves in the qualifiers. Rangpur Riders would be slightly upset to be playing this game after losing in the 1st qualifier. Dhaka Dynamites on the other hand have rightfully earned their place in this game after having defeated the Chittagong Vikings comprehensively. It is a tough call between the two sides but Dynamites have momentum on their side and shall start slightly ahead of the Riders. 

Our Prediction is for Dhaka Dynamites to win this game!
