Dhaka Dynamites have been making the right noises and attracting a lot of audiences worldwide with the presence of host of superstars in the team. They won the last match against a strong Rangpur Riders team by a close margin of 2 runs and stream rolled Khulna Titans and Rajashahi Kings by 105 runs and 87 runs respectively. The Dynamites have been unbeatable so far. They are led by Bangladeshi allrounder Shakib Al Hasan. The team is boasted by the presence of West Indian All rounder trio of Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Kieran Pollard. Afghanie Zazai , Shuvagat Hom and Shakib form the core of the batting. Young Mohor Sheikh and Rubel Hossian combine with Andre Russell to form fast bowling combination. Spin all-rounders Shakib and Shugata Hom take over spin bowling responsibilities. Aliss Islam was the star last match with his hat-trick and successfully defended 15 runs in the last over. Currently they are the favorites in the tournament.
Sylhet Sixers have won their last match Chittagong Vikings by 5 runs. They are led by the explosive Aussie David Warner. Liton Das joins with warner as the other opener. Sabbir Rahmann, Atif Hosasain and Nasir Hossain form the middle order of the team. Nicholas Pooran`s hitting was the main highlight of their last victory. The Sixers have an impressive pace bowling attack with towering Pakistani Mohammed Irfan, Taskin Ahmed and Al-amin Hossain. Nepal`s teenage sensation Sandeep Lamichhame , Nasir Hossain and Alok Kapali share the spin bowling duties. With the host of stars in both teams, this is going to be a cracking contest.

The sixers played their best XI last match and will stick to the same in this match.
Al-Amin Hossain, Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Sandeep Lamichhane, S Tanvir, Alok Kapali, Nicholas Pooran, Sabbir Rahman, Afif Hossain, David Warner, Nasir Hossain
The match is scheduled to start at local time 6:30 PM local time. Sher-e-Bangla stadium is known to have a balance between the bat and ball. With a host of matches, both teams would be aware of the pitch conditions. Scores in excess of 160 runs have been scored consistently here. Any score above 180 runs will be hard to chase.
WIN the toss, BAT First
Batting first teams have won more matches than the teams chasing. And both teams will look to post a huge score and pressurize the opposition batsmen. Batting second under lights becomes difficult owing to the late evening start.
The presence of number of all-rounder’s in Dhaka Dynamites extends their batting and bowling depth. They are a formidable side and it is tough to beat them but is not impossible. We expect Dhaka dynamites to come victorious in this match.
Dhaka Dynamites will win their fourth match in a row!
