bpl match – BPL 2023: Match 9, CCH vs FBA Match Prediction – Who will win today’s BPL match between CCH vs FBA?

Both Chattogram Challengers and Fortune Barishal have won one match each.

After losing their first game of the Bangladesh Premier League season, Chattogram Challengers (CCH) registered an important win in the previous match against Khulna Tigers and are set to host Fortune Barishal (FBA) on January 13 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. The Barishal-based side, on the other hand, managed to win their last match against Rangpur Riders and will eye for a win to improve their standing in the league.

bpl match

Their batting has been marvellous so far this season with the middle-order delivering on a consistent basis. Afghanistan batter Ibrahim Zadran scored a brilliant half-century in the last match (52 off 41) while Mehidy Hasan Miraz accompanied him in the middle, scoring 43 off 29. Iftikhar Ahmed (25* off 18) and Karim Janat (21* off 14) too played their part as the team won their first match of the season by six wickets.

bpl news

When it comes to their bowling, they have plenty of options and thus the captain can try various things. They conceded more than 190 runs in the first match but managed to restrict the Riders to 160 and that is a massive positive. Chaturanga de Silva and Miraz notched two wickets in the last match while Shakib, Ebadot Hossain and Janat picked one each.

bpl schedule

Coming back to the Challengers, the Shuvagata Hom-led side completely dominated Khulna Tigers in the last match.

Probable best batter: Usman Khan

The opener was sensational in the previous match. Batting at a strike rate of 177.59, Usman Khan scored 103* off 58 deliveries. If the 27-year-old continues to bat in a similar fashion, he can be the main difference in the match against Fortune Barishal.

bpl news – A need for growing T20 bowling skills

It was Fortune Barishal skipper Shakib Al Hasan who said that bowlers have not quite turned up at the ninth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), especially during night fixtures where pitches offered big scores.

bpl news

As a format, the T20 mindset and culture is still in its primary period. The lack of T20s in the domestic circuit, except the BPL, has been brought up as a key reason for why it is more difficult to bring up players ready for the format.

The batters have found some rhythm and a few bowlers have shown their mettle so far, but as the Chattogram phase begins on Friday – with Chattogram Challengers taking on Fortune Barishal in the day’s opening fixture – the onus will be on the bowlers to respond in kind on wickets where runs are expected.

bpl schedule

Barishal’s Ebadot Hossain talked about the same need for improvement. Although he referred to the quicks, spinners need to get on their game too.

“Chattogram’s wickets are always batting-friendly. The fast bowlers need to improve their skill and bowl intelligently. Given that wickets are friendly for batters, the pacers with more skill will do better compared to others,” Ebadot said while talking to reporters at Chattogram yesterday.

bpl team

The national team pacer was not just talking about BPL success. He himself was at the receiving end of a bitter end to Bangladesh’s Asia Cup campaign last year, when he bagged crucial wickets but Sri Lanka targeted him at the death and took him for runs to seize the game away from the Tigers. With ICC wickets providing sporting surfaces at the very least, it is the need of the hour to get accustomed to bowling on batting-friendly surfaces.India recently scored over 400 runs in the third ODI in Chattogram but the Bangladesh bowlers can take valuable lessons from the experience.

Sylhet Strikers skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is the leading wicket-taker with seven wickets in this BPL alongside Al Amin Hossain. Mashrafe has brought his experience and new-ball bowling skills and has not been hit for too many runs. Al Amin though suffered, conceding an economy rate of over nine. Sylhet’s other pace duo Rejaur Rahman Raja and Mohammad Amir are second on the list with six wickets. The freedom to express themselves has not only allowed batters but also the bowlers of Sylhet to shine.

bpl scores

“Raja bagged four wickets in the first game of the Dhaka phase. Everyone said that although the wicket was good, Raja bowled well. Wickets got better and better after that in Dhaka. Chattogram is always good, so if we can do well on these surfaces, it will help in the upcoming World Cup,” said Ebadot.

When batters were able to show superiority, bowlers were not often on the mark. The yorkers have not come through while slower deliveries have been picked off when the surface has not held up slightly.

“You have to be accurate with your yorkers and slowers,” he reminded, with death-bowling still a headache for the national side.

bpl match

Ebadot said he has been working with his Bangladesh teammate and Comilla Victorians pacer Mustafizur Rahman to develop his cutters.

“My strength is to bowl fast and I have the yorker going for me. Along with that I am working on cutters and their accuracy. Mustafizur is good at cutters and I was learning from him. He changed the grip of my slower bouncers and it helped me,” he said.

Working as a unit always works for pacers. Ebadot has Khaled Ahmed in his side. If the pacers can get their execution right in these BPL tracks, it will be the best thing for the national team.

bpl team – Mashrafe sees silver lining amidst lacklustre BPL

Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) newcomers Sylhet Strikers are in terrific form. In the first five days of BPL9, Sylhet had four matches scheduled, all of which they won.

Naturally, skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza’s leadership is being praised after such sparkling performance of the team.

bpl team

However, after Sylhet’s win over Dhaka Dominators on Tuesday, Mashrafe credited the entire team for the brilliant start to their maiden season.

bpl scores

“Everyone in the team has been trying hard from the get-go. You never know what will happen on the field. We are trying to do right things off the field in hopes that our efforts will reflect on the field. It’s not just about me, it’s about the entire team,” Mashrafe told the media on Tuesday.

bpl match

Franchises from Sylhet have never fared well at the BPL. In the second edition, Sylhet Royals had made it to the semifinal, which remains the highest success for a team from the region.

This year, Sylhet roped in Mashrafe as a direct signing before the players’ draft and then assembled a team around him.

bpl news

Sylhet began their campaign with an eight-wicket win over Chattogram Challengers, followed it up by a six-wicket win over Fortune Barishal, a five-wicket win over Comilla Victorians and a 62-run victory over Dhaka Dominators.

Four wins in as many games have placed Sylhet at the top of the points-table with eight points.

Meanwhile, the first phase of BPL9 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka ended on Tuesday. The teams are now in Chattogram for the second leg which will begin on 13 January.

bpl schedule

The ninth edition of the tournament has been criticised for its mismanagement, poor umpiring and a lack of star power. However, Mashrafe sees a silver lining amidst all of this as according to the pacer the pitches at the SBNS during the first leg were ideal for T20 cricket, something which was not seen in earlier editions of the league.

“When the wicket is good, playing good cricket becomes easier. The wickets I saw here (SBNS), were excellent. In wickets like these, we can nurture some good cricketers. This is a big positive thing that amidst so much criticism, the action on the ground has been good,” said the 39-year-old pacer.

The group-phase of this year’s BPL does not have the Decision Review System (DRS) technology. Instead, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is using Additional Decision Review System (ADRS), a technology that has proven to be mostly ineffective in helping the third umpire make the right decision.

Questions have been raised on the standard of umpiring as well, with multiple players getting into heated arguments with the umpires on the field.

Mashrafe feels that the umpires have to take responsibility to improve the standard of umpiring, “At the end of the day, some questions still remain. But if the umpires can’t improve their standard, it’s their failure. Umpires can be brought in from other countries. But I would say we need to give our umpires a chance. If they can learn something from all of this, then it would be good.”

“There will be some wrong decisions, that’s bound to happen as there is no snickometer or hotspot. I think the umpires need to make some brave calls, which we see in foreign league or during international matches. The umpires also need to take some steps to set a higher standard.”
