bpl news – baji999 com – Dhaka Dominators vs Fortune Barishal: Who will win? What’s your prediction?

The Bangladesh Premier League is at its business end of proceedings as teams at the bottom half of the table face do-or-die situations in order to make the top four, while teams at the top half look to consolidate their positions eyeing the Qualifiers.

With such contrasting realities, Nasir Hossain’s Dhaka Dominators, who are languishing at the bottom with two wins out of eight matches, will take on one of the most likely candidates to take hold of the Qualifier positions, Shakib Al Hasan-led Fortune Barishal.

bpl schedule

Dhaka got their campaign off to a wonderful start with a six-wicket win over Khulna Tigers but since then had to endure a horrific run of results as they lost the next six matches.

However, they have shown signs of life with another win over Khulna in their latest encounter but will have to play out of their skin in order to upset a marauding Barishal.

Captain Nasir has been Dhaka’s top performer with both bat and ball and had help from speedster Taskin Ahmed but underwhelming efforts from their batters and a lacklustre display from their foreign recruits have somewhat put a rope on their potential progression.

On the other end of the table, Shakib has led from the front, this time predominantly with the bat and match-winning performances from their foreign inclusions have boosted their strength and made them one of the frontrunners in the tournament so far.

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. Opener Usman Khan scored a scintillating century (103* off 58) while his partner Max O’Dowd scored 58 off 50. Courtesy of their blistering partnership, Chattogram chased the target with ease. Coming to their bowling performance, two of their bowlers conceded more than 11 runs per over in the previous match and overall, there is a lot of room for improvement.

Probable Playing XIs for CCH vs FBA

Chattogram Challengers (CCH):

Max O’Dowd, Irfan Sukkur(w), Shuvagata Hom(c), Afif Hossain, Usman Khan, Unmukt Chand, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Abu Jayed, Ziaur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan Rana

Chaturanga de Silva, Anamul Haque(w), Iftikhar Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan(c), Mahmudullah, Ibrahim Zadran, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Karim Janat, Kamrul Islam, Ebadot Hossain, Khaled Ahmed

Probable Best Performers from CCH vs FBA:

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.

Probable best bowler: Chaturanga de Silva

The 32-year-old all-rounder picked up three wickets from two matches so far in the tournament. Even though he hasn’t been very dangerous with the ball, the Galle-born cricketer can give crucial breakthroughs to help his team.

bpl schedule – Shakib finds some positives in BPL at last

“Everything is on a break,” Bangladesh’s Test and T20I skipper Shakib Al Hasan said when asked about his reaction to umpiring in the BPL at an event organised by Yamaha, only a day after he had made headlines for getting into the field of play before his side Fortune Barishal’s innings.

bpl schedule

The all-rounder has already made headlines for his criticism of the BPL since the ninth edition of the tournament began, stating he could do a better job than the current organisers if he were CEO. At another commercial event a little later, he said it would be better to be board president than CEO.

bpl news

Shakib accepted the fine for a level 1 breach of the BCB’s code of conduct for entering the field, but it remains to be seen whether the all-rounder has had enough of going after the BPL’s organisation.

bpl match

Despite the shortcomings of the BPL this time around, Shakib found some positives from a cricketer’s perspective, not getting into the logistical challenges left unmet. Yet, he reminded of difficulty playing T20s in Mirpur.

“The pitch is very good this year. Getting such pitches in Mirpur is unexpected. You have to credit the curator for that. That’s why runs are being scored and games are going well. It’s exciting,” Shakib said.

bpl team

While the night games have produced runs, it still remains a bit difficult during the afternoon games for batters. A few local batters, a majority from the Sylhet Strikers, have started the BPL on the right foot.

“[Nazmul Hossain] Shanto, Towhid Hridoy and Zakir [Hasan] have done well. The best thing is that local batters are doing well and the pitch deserves credit,” he said.

However, Shakib also pointed out that local bowlers are yet to really make a case for themselves. “Bowlers are not doing well. We have to learn how to bowl on these pitches now,” he said.

While any fiery remarks have been put on hold, when the action takes to the field at Chattogram, it remains to be seen whether Shakib will go from ‘break’ to action again.

bpl match – Shakib, Nurul, Anamul fined for misconduct

Fortune Barishal captain Shakib Al Hasan, opener Anamul Haque and Rangpur Riders captain Nurul Hasan were fined 15 per cent of their match fees each for their misconduct during their Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Shakib and Nurul were fined for their part in the drama over who will take first strike for Barishal during their chase and which bowler would open the attack for Rangpur.

bpl match

Anamul, on the other hand, was penalised for arguing with the on-field umpire after the third umpire upheld the original lbw decision taken against him, which he believed was wrong.

The players accepted that their behaviour was out of line and accepted the misconduct charges laid on them by match referee Akhtar Ahmad.

The first incident occurred at the start of Barishal’s 159-run chase against Rangpur.

bpl news

Left-arm spinner Rakibul Hasan was set to open the attack for Rangpur and Barishal’s Chaturanga de Silva was ready to take first strike.

But seeing the left-hander Chaturanga on strike, Rangpur skipper Nurul took the ball from Rakibul and handed it to right-arm off-spinner Mahedi Hasan.

Seeing this change of bowlers, Barishal openers also swapped places, with right-hander Anamul Haque going to the striker’s end.

bpl schedule

After that, Rangpur once again gave the ball to Rakibul to open the attack.

Rangpur’s insistence to bowl a left-arm bowler against a right-hander or a right-arm bowler against a left-hander and Barishal’s intention to avoid that anyhow caused all the trouble.

When this drama was taking place at the middle, Shakib stormed in from the dugout and went straight to square leg umpire Gazi Sohel.

As per the rules, Shakib is not allowed to come into the field like that. But that didn’t stop the Barishal captain from getting into a confrontation with the umpire.

The argument continued for around five more minutes. Once Shakib left the field, left-handed Chaturanga took first strike against left-arm spinner Rakibul. In the same over, Chaturanga was dismissed by Rakibul.

The second incident occurred in the fourth over of the chase.

Anamul was hit on the pads and given lbw. But the opener claimed he touched the ball with his bat and reviewed the decision.

The third umpire used the much debated Additional Decision Review System (ADRS) to review the decision and chose to uphold the umpire’s call.

Anamul was infuriated by the decision and hung around to let his displeasure known to the umpires before finally leaving the field furious.
