Sylhet Sunrisers Vs Ministers Group Dhaka is the seventh match in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League. Minister Group Dhaka registered their first win of the league thanks to an all-around performance from Andre Russell, as the strong all-rounder announced his arrival to the league. The entire bowling line-up showed up and restricted a line-up with stars like Chris Gayle to just 129. The chase was rather straightforward, and Dhaka managed an easy win. Sylhet is playing their first game after folding for 96. They are down on points and net-run-rate and will need a strong showing to gather some momentum in the tournament.

Time: 12:00 PM IST.
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.
The Mirpur stadium has good weather conditions with some nice sun in the forecast. The temperature is likely to touch 30 to 35 degrees, giving us a full view of the Sylhet Sunrisers Vs Ministers Group Dhaka fixture. With drier conditions batting first may be a better option to avoid the issue of getting tired in the sun early in the game.
The Mirpur pitch is slow as usual, leaving both sides depending on the spin. However, with the Sylhet Sunrisers Vs Ministers Group Dhaka match being played through the day, there is a chance of the pitch baking and losing lots of moisture resulting in the presence of spin as the game progresses.
Sylhet Sunrisers: Anamul Haque, Colin Ingram, Mohammad Mithun, Ravi Bopara, Mosaddek Hossain(C), Alok Kapali, Sohag Gazi, Muktar Ali, Kesrick Williams, Taskin Ahmed, Nazmun Islam
Ministers Group Dhaka: Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Shahzad, Mohammad Naim, Mahmadullah, Andre Russell, Isuru Udana, Jaharul Islam, Shuvagata Hom, Arafat Sunny, Rubel Hossain,Hasan Murad
Kesrick Williams has an immense wealth of experience in the T20 circuit, and would not have been pleased with the loss. With Sylhet currently behind on the points table, his experience could prove handy as Sylhet fight back and make a mark in the tournament.
Andre Russell came into form last night with an all-around performance to floor his opponents. He is now on the song and can be a danger to his oppositions as the tournament goes on. With the ability to make an impact in both innings, Russell could be backed as an important player yet again.
Dhaka is likely to go unchanged after a comprehensive performance. The batting line-up was a bit off, with the openers struggling but they are likely to give the openers a few more chances before panicking.
Sylhet on the other hand may look at their batting backups as the side collapsed for 96 in the first game.
With Andre Russell and Mahmadullah in touch, Dhaka has a strong chance of winning the game. Chasing will be tough with the heat and pitch wearing making the toss an important factor.
