The hosts Chattogram Challengers (CCH) have had a mixed season so far in the Bangladesh Premier League. The Shuvagata Hom-led side managed to win only two of their five games and are currently placed fifth on the points table. They cannot afford to drop any more points at the moment and thus, would be hoping to get back into winning ways when they take on Khulna Tigers on January 20 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Their opponent Khulna Tigers had an equally poor start in the tournament. They managed to win only one of their four games and are currently second last on the points table. They, however, played some brilliant cricket in the last match against Rangpur Riders and if they can manage to continue with the same brand of cricket, the Tigers can surprise all the teams.

Pakistan speedster Wahab Riaz is in exceptional form as he picked up four wickets, giving away just 14 runs in his four over. With the bat, opener Tamim Iqbal showed his class all over again as he smacked 60* off 47 deliveries to take the game away from the Riders. All they need to do right now is take one game at a time to climb up the ladder.
Coming back to the home side, they were pretty ordinary with the bat in their last match against Comilla Victorians. The skipper scored valuable 37 runs but a complete flop show from the middle order put Chattogram in deep trouble. They could manage to score only 135 runs, which the Victorians chased down with absolute ease. Malinda Pushpakumara picked up two wickets but overall, it was a very poor performance from the bowling unit as well.

The surface at Chattogram is helping the batters score a lot of runs. However, one needs to spend some time in order to get adjusted to the conditions. Bowling first will be ideal and anything over 175 runs can be considered a good total.

The veteran opener had started the season on a slower note but is gathering momentum now. He was magnificent in the previous match and would only hope to replicate the same in the next game to stabilise his team after a horrendous start. So far, the cricketer has scored 109 runs in four matches.
Probable best bowler: Wahab Riaz
The 37-year-old pacer has been incredible in the season so far. In four matches, Wahab Riaz has picked up seven wickets at an impressive economy of 5.87. He currently is the joint third-leading wicket-taker in the tournament.
