The weather is clear and there will be no disruption in the Chattogram Challengers Vs Comilla Victorians fixture. There is a possibility of the pitch slowing down due to the proximity of the sun, making things easier for the side batting first.
The wicket has been used for a few games and some slowness is expected. There will be support for the spinners, and batting first is the better option as the surface will be at its best.
Chattogram Challengers: Kennar Lewis (wk), Will Jacks, Afif Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Benny Howell, Naeem Islam (c), Nasum Ahmed, Rejaur Rahman Raja, Shoriful Islam, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury
Comilla Victorians: Cameron Delport, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Faf du Plessis, Mominul Haque, Imrul Kayes (c), Karim Janat, Mahidul Islam Ankon (wk), Nahidul Islam, Shohidul Islam, Tanvir Islam, Mustafizur Rahman
With a used pitch, Mehidy Hasan Miraj can be a handful as he knows how to extract spin on helpful surfaces. He had a wonderful year at home, and Miraj will be key up front as his side looks to make inroads with the new ball.
With a spinning surface, Faf Du Plessis may have a role to play. He is a handy batter against spin, and his high bat-lift and crouch approach will help him tackle spin with ease.
Both sides are likely to go unchanged from the previous fixture. There is a possilbity of Faf Du Plessis getting a change in his batting position though. In the previous fixture he was up as an opener and in this game, he could move down a spot to strengthen the middle-order.
Comilla Victorians are coming off a decent game and will be raring to go. They have a strong line-up and good blend of batters to handle spinners giving them an advantage in the upcoming fixture.
