CAV vs CMV Match Prediction - Feb 04, 2023

With the doors to the playoffs all but closed for them, the Chattogram Challengers will be playing for pride as they take on a rampant Comilla Victorians team this weekend in the Bangladesh Premier League.

The Victorians have already defeated the Challengers once this season and going by their current form, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a similar outcome in this match too. 


CAV vs CMV Team Previews

Chattogram Challengers

It has been a forgettable season for the Chattogram Challengers as they have managed to win just 2 of the 9 matches that they have played so far and as a result, are at the bottom of the points table. Even if they win each of its 3 upcoming matches, it is highly improbable that we will see them play in the qualifiers.

Afif Hossain has been the most consistent batsman for the team, scoring 262 runs so far, and has received decent support from Usman Khan and Shuvagata Hom, with the latter proving to be a decent all-rounder. However, the other batsmen have failed to have any significant impact on the proceedings.

The team has tried plenty of combinations in the middle-order batting but has failed to change their fortunes. It is the same story with the bowling too, as none of the bowlers have been consistent enough. Nihaduzzaman has been the best of the lot with 9 wickets in 6 games.

The seamers have struggled to contain the opposition batsmen and have also failed to grab wickets, as Mrittunjoy Chowdhury and Mehedi Hasan Rana have managed just 11 wickets between them. Given the lack of form, the team is likely to struggle in this match.

Comilla Victorians

After losing three consecutive matches at the start of the season, the Victorians have made an excellent comeback and have played like true champions, winning each of their 6 matches. As a result, the Victorians have moved to the 3rd spot on the points table and are well on track to book a berth in the next stage.

The Victorians scored a thumping win in their last outing against the Khulna Tigers. Chasing a huge target of 211 runs, the Victorians received a couple of early setbacks as Litton Das had to retire hurt and Imrul Kayes fell cheaply. However, Mohammad Rizwan and Johnson Charles mounted an assault on the Khulna bowlers, putting up a 122-run partnership.

Rizwan fell for a well-made 73, while Charles went on till the end of the innings to score a brilliant century. The Comilla batsmen are in excellent form and are well-placed to take advantage of the average Challengers’ bowling. Khushdil Shah has proved to be a good buy for the Victorians as he has scored 176 runs and has also picked up 8 wickets.

Talking about the bowling, the pace attack will be spearheaded by Mustafizur Rahman and Naseem Shah, while Tanvir Islam and Mosaddek Hossain will take care of the spin.

Pitch and Conditions

The Sher E Bangla Stadium has a balanced track, providing equal opportunities for the batsmen as well as the bowlers, the slower bowlers in particular. The average first-inning score here is around 150 but the team batting first will be hoping to score more than 170 just to be safe. Since this is a day game, dew is unlikely to be a factor here.

The weather is expected to be clear with plenty of sunshine and temperatures ranging from 24-26 degrees Celsius. 


CAV vs CMV Betting Tips

Despite the low odds being offered for a Comilla win, we feel that they are the only team to back here. They have been in a clinical form for the last few weeks while the Challengers have struggled to contain their opposition. Punters can always look to place a few side bets to make the most out of this match.

Bet on the Comilla Victorians to win.

    Top bowler for the Chattogram Challengers

    Mohammad Nihaduzzaman (5.50)


Nihaduzzaman has played just 6 matches this season but has emerged to be the top wicket-taker for the Challengers with 9 wickets. He can tie up the batsmen and build up pressure on them, allowing him to pick wickets at regular intervals. With the pitch at Mirpur offering plenty of assistance to the spinners, we think that Nihaduzzaman is well-placed to emerge as the top bowler.
