Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Chattogram Challengers are currently leading the BPL table with 12 points in their eight games. They would be eager to continue with their winning streak in the upcoming game against Cummilla Warriors.
Challengers have Lendl Simmons, Imrul Kayes and Chadwick Walton, who have done a convincing job with the bat so far in the ongoing tournament. Also, they would be eager to replicate their form in the next match. On the other hand, their bowling unit has done an impressive job in their department. Mehedi Hasan Rana turned out to be the best bowler for Challengers who has grabbed 13 wickets in his six games.
On the other hand, Cumilla Warriors have suffered four consecutive defeats and will be looking to get back on the winning track before they get ruled out from the contention of qualifying into the playoffs. They have some high profile players in their ranks that comprise of Dawid Malan, Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman, who hold a good experience of playing at the international level, will look to win the upcoming game for their side.
There are no chances of rain and it is expected to be a perfect day for a cricket match. Also, the temperature is expected to deviate between 14 and 26 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The pitch at the Shere-e-Bangla stadium has gone in the favour of the batsmen and the fast bowlers have not got much help from the wicket. On the other hand, the spinners have got a lot of turn from the wicket and batters have found it difficult to play strokes against the spin heads. However, the side winning the toss will look to bat first as they won’t like to face spinners in the second innings of the match.

Imrul Kayes will be an important player for their side as he is in red-hot form with the bat. So far he has mustered 289 runs in eight games for his team. He would be a wise pick for any Dream11 Fantasy Side. Chadwick Walton will be another important player, who will be crucial for any fantasy team as far as his form is concerned in the ongoing tournament.
