With five losses in their last six matches in this BPL, Dhaka Dynamites have slumped from the top of the table to the fifth position. However, a Net Run Rate of + 0.958 is a big plus for them and could work to their advantage in terms of qualification. Their next encounter is scheduled against Comilla Victorians, who have already qualified for the playoffs, at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
The Victorians, even after qualifying, have plenty of work to do in order to confirm their position among the top two teams and a victory against the Dynamites would almost ensure that. The Victorians, captained by left-handed batsman Imrul Kayes, emerged victorious in their last match against Shakib Al Hasan’s Dhaka. They won their last three fixtures and are deemed to be the favourites by a fair distance.
Pitch and Conditions
The pitch in Dhaka started off as a slow one and run-scoring turned out to be a tough task. Nevertheless, as the tournament progressed, the venue witnessed a few fairly high-scoring affairs. With the last phase of the round-robin stage set to be played, bowlers could be in for some more misery in the first of tomorrow’s doubleheader.
Mizanur Rahman and Sunil Narine are the opening batsman with Rony Talukdar at the number three position. Skipper Shakib Al Hasan and wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan are the men in the middle order. The hard-hitting Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell would also be required to deliver with the bat. Shuvagata Hom adds depth to the batting. Mahmudul Hasan, Rubel and Birch are the other players.

Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque are the openers with Shamsur Rahman at three. Imrul Kayes will bat at three. Lewis also can return to his opening slot. The team would be looking up to Thisara Perera and the experienced Shahid Afridi to deliver with both willow and leather. Mohammad Saifuddin, Wahab Riaz and Abu Hider Rony are the fast bowlers. Mahedi Hasan is the spin bowling option.
