The Chattogram Challengers Vs Minister Group Dhaka will be played during the day with coolish weather conditions. The temperatures aren’t going to be too high and there are clear skies in the forecast.
The Sylhet surface seems to be helpful for both batters and bowlers, but there are signs of the pitch slowing down as the game progresses. With dryness in the surface and the possibility of wear and tear, batting first is a better option.
Chadwick Walton, Will Jacks, Afif Hossain, Shamim Patwari, Naeem Islam (c), Benny Howell, Akbar Ali (wk), Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed
Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imran Uzzaman, Mahmudullah (c), Shuvagata Hom, Andre Russell, Naim Sheikh, Mashrafe Mortaza, Qais Ahmad, Rubel Hossain, Ebadot Hossain
Both sides are likely to go unchanged as their tournament approaches a do or die stage.
Will Jacks has been in good touch this season and his runs upfront will be crucial in Sylhet. With runs easiest to get when the ball is new, Jacks can come into his own, and make an impact early in the game.
Tamim Iqbal, like Jacks, will have a role to play early on. With the new ball easier to play, Iqbal will look to score some early runs and make things easier for the other batters.
Both sides aren’t the most consistent but have some decent names. With in-form players like Will Jacks, Chattogram Challengers have a slight edge over Minister Group Dhaka.
Match Prediction: Chattogram Challengers will win the match.
