The Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club kick started the DPDCL 2019 with back to back wins before suffering a close loss. They cruised to a 9-wicket win against Shinepukur CC and chased down 302 against the Prime Bank Cricket Club. However, the PDSC went down in a last-ball thriller against Mohammedan Sporting Club in the previous game by a 1-wicket margin.
Chasing a target of 249, Mohammedan needed three runs from the last over with one wicket in hand. Arafat Sunny conceded only one run in first five balls before getting hit for a boundary on the final ball. They will now face the Gazi Group Cricketers who started with a defeat against Mohammedan. Gazi defeated Bangladesh KSP and Khelaghar SKS in their next two games.

Injury and Availability News:
Abu Jayed Chowdhury returned from Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand. He is expected to be part of the Prime Doleshwar SC’s playing XI for this game.
Kamrul Islam Rabbi is a proper wicket-taking option that any team would like to have in the limited-overs. The pacer has 103 wickets to his name from 69 List A matches. He claimed nine wickets from three games as his bowling figures read: 5/24, 2/52 and 2/19.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
The Prime Doleshwar SC skipper Farhad Reza has been exceptional with both bat and ball. He has to be a must pick as captain or vice-captain. Saif Hassan too has been brilliant with the bat in this tournament. The all-rounders Parvez Rasool, Shykat Ali and Mahedi Hasan could make a difference in both departments on their day. Kamrul Islam Rabbi and Shamsur Rahman can be picked as vice-captain.
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – M. Jashimuddin
Batsmen – Saif Hassan (VC), Shamsur Rahman, Marshall Ayub, Touhid Tareq
All-Rounders – Parvez Rasool, Shykat Ali, Mahedi Hasan
Bowlers – Farhad Reza (C), Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Arafat Sunny
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – M. Jashimuddin
Batsmen – Saif Hassan, Shamsur Rahman, Rony Talukdar, Imrul Kayes
All-Rounders – Shykat Ali (C), Abu Hider, Saad Nasim
Bowlers – Farhad Reza, Kamrul Islam Rabbi (VC), Enamul Haque jnr
The Gazi Group openers Rony Talukdar and Imrul Kayes have been quite poor in the tournament as the duo together aggregate 32 runs across the three matches so far. The seam-friendly pitches didn’t help the duo to score a few runs. Abu Jayed Chowdhury is expected to be part of the PDSC’s playing XI but has not been included in the Dream11 player list yet.
The Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club is expected to stop Gazi Group Cricketers from registering their 3rd consecutive win.
