Rajshahi Royals Preview

Rajshahi Royals chased down the total with ease against Chattogram Challengers in the last match. Liton Das played a superb knock of 74 runs to set up the match. Afif Hossain (347 runs) and Shoaib Malik (352 runs) are playing well and have scored 300+ runs this season so far. Andre Russell and Ravi Bopara together form a dangerous duo in the middle order. They have a lot of bowling options and used around 8 bowlers last match with 5 of them picking wickets. They have a good pace attack with the likes of Abu Jayed, Mohammad Irfan, Ravi Bopara, and Andre Russell in their ranks. Taijul Islam and Alok Kapali are the spin bowlers in the team.

Key Players:

Liton Das – Liton Das has matured as a player and has scored 422 runs at a strike rate of 140 with 3 half-centuries so far. He has back-to-back fifties in the last two matches and looks out for a big knock from him in this big match.

Mohammed Irfan – The 7 foot tall Irfan has 8 wickets so far at an economy of just 6.2 RPO. Irfan is bowling in the powerplay and still going around just 6 RPO and he will be a tough bowler to face due to his tall frame.

Rajshahi Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Liton Das (wk), Afif Hossain, Shoaib Malik, Ravi Bopara, Andre Russell (c), Alok Kapali, Farhad Reza, Taijul Islam, Kamrul Islam, Mohammad Irfan, Abu Jayed
