THE TEAM NEWS

COMILLA VICTORIANS

Coach: Mohammad Salahuddin

Captain: Imrul Kayes

  • Comilla Victorians have won five of their last six matches in the Bangladesh Premier League and are assured of a place in the top four but will be keen to end the group stage well and carry some momentum into the knockout phase.

  • Their bowling unit has not been as effective at times as they would have hoped but it came to the fore in the last game against Chittagong Vikings as they restricted them to just 116/8 and their batting continues to produce the goods as they eased to victory.

  • There is a chance that Evin Lewis could be rested as he has a strain so Liam Dawson could come back into the side if he is rested as he will be a key figure of them in the knockout phase but that is the only likely change.

DHAKA DYNAMITES

Coach: Khaled Mahmud

Captain: Shakib Al Hasan

  • After being the standout team at the start of the tournament, the Dynamites have now lost their last four matches and they have to win at least one if not both of their final two matches to ensure a top four place.

  • Against the Vikings last time out, they brought pace bowler Birch back into the side but he was largely ineffective so they go back to a local replacement and bring Hazratullah Zazai back in at the top of the order.

  • Sunil Narine’s struggles continue but while he was out for a duck in that game, his bowling made up for that but he is certainly due a good performance with both bat and ball after struggling to produce in both facets of the game.

THE PREDICTION

This is a huge match for Dhaka Dynamites who desperately need to snap this four-match losing streak quickly. Due to their excellent net run rate, one win will likely suffice from the next two matches so even if they look like losing this match, their focus will be on ensuring their run rate is not damaged too badly. It is hard to oppose the Victorians on recent form and barring complacency, they should have too much with bat and ball for this struggling Dhaka outfit.
