We have entered the last round of league games in Bangladesh Premier League 2022. Fortune Barishal and Minister Group Dhaka would like to end their league campaign on a positive note. Fortune Barishal defeated the Sylhet Sunrisers in the last game while Minister Group Dhaka also come here with a win against Khulna Tigers.
Fortune Barishal have won the last five games in a row and have already booked a berth for the playoffs. The side would be free to play its game here while the Minister Group Dhaka must win to reach the playoffs. Both sides have big players in the team and we are likely to see one of the best contests for the season here.
Shakib Al Hasan’s side continues with its good form. They have won the last five games that have seen results and have become the first team to qualify for the playoffs. They defeated the Sylhet Sunrisers by 12 runs in a high-scoring game. The side had lost to Minister Group Dhaka earlier in the season and Shakib would press hard for a win in their last league game.
Chris Gayle and Munim Shahriar scored fifties in the last game, and they would look to provide the side with a good start here. Shakib strengthens the middle order, and he would look to score runs with Nurul Hasan and Towhid Hridoy. In Dwayne Bravo, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and Ziaur Rahman the side has good depth in its batting.
Mujeeb ur Rahman went for runs in the last game but he has been in good form and shall look to pick wickets sharing the new ball with Shakib. Bravo and Mehedi Hasan Rana must bowl tight spells in the middle overs as Dhaka have a strong batting line-up. They would also like to see disciplined bowling from Shafiqul Islam, Ziaur Rahman, and Shanto in this game.

It was a convincing win for Mahmudullah’s side in the last game against Khulna Tigers. They restricted the opponents to a small total and chased it down comfortably to win by 5 wickets. Having defeated Barishal earlier Mahmudullah would want his side to register a convincing win again and book a berth in the playoffs.
Tamim Iqbal and Imran Uzzaman went out cheaply in the last game and the side would need a strong show from them here. The middle-order did well against Khulna and runs would be expected here from Mahmudullah, Shamsur Rahman, and Jahurul Islam. Shuvagata Hom has played his part well and he would look to add quick runs with Azmatullah Omarzai towards the end.
Rubel Hossain and Fazal Haque did well with the new ball in the last game and they will have to get early wickets considering Barishal’s strengths with the bat. Omarzai and Arafat Sunny helped the side in last game’s win and there would be expectations from them here. In Qais Ahmed and Mahmudullah, Dhaka have a good variety in their attack.

Dhaka would have slightly cloudy skies on February 11. The surface would be flat and batting conditions are expected to be excellent as we had seen in earlier games played here. The side batting first would need 180 runs on the board to defend it under wet conditions in the evening.
Dhaka is a great venue for a T20 game where there is something for the batsmen as well as the spinners. The flat surface and the fast outfield have let batsmen score runs easily at this venue. Fast bowlers haven’t had much assistance from the surface but spinners have done well here in the past.
In the ten games played at this venue, the sides chasing the score have won seven of them. Evening dew makes it difficult to defend scores here. The side winning the toss would have this in mind and is most likely to opt for bowling first in this game.
Minister Group Dhaka come here with a convincing win and had defeated Fortune Barishal earlier. However, the side has struggled with its consistency and their batsmen have often let the side down. Fortune Barishal on the other hand have been in excellent form having won the last five games. This would make them favorites in this game.
