Match Details:

The 38th game of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2019-20 will be played between Dhaka Platoon and Rangpur Rangers at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka.

Match Preview for Dream11 Fantasy:

Rangpur Rangers have almost been ruled out from the tournament as they have to win all their games left and will have to wait for games of other teams in the tournament to go in their favour and their situation looks quite stiff. However, keeping the above things aside, they won their last game and will look to replicate the same performance against Platoon. They have the services of Mohammad Naim, Shane Watson and Cameron Delport and their presence makes Rangers batting line up look quite strong. Also, their bowling has also given some impressive performances in the last couple of games.

Dhaka Platoon is just a win away from qualifying into the semi-finals of BPL 2019-20. They will not want to lose this golden opportunity and are expected to come up with some brilliant performances against Rangers in the next game. There openers Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque are in great form and are expected to source some good knocks in the crucial game for their side.

Weather Condition/Report

There are no chances of rain on the matchday but humidity is expected to be quite high around 55%. The wind will blow at 7 km/hr and the temperature might deviate between 14 and 24 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.


Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch at Shere Bangla Stadium has nothing much to offer for the fast bowlers and the batsmen will have a good time facing them, who can compile some good runs in the next match. But, spin heads will play an important role in the game as they will get ample turn from the track and batters might find difficult to play their strokes. Coming onto the toss, it is expected that the side that wins it might opt for batting as the teams have found it difficult to chase on this ground.
