CAV vs SSR Match Prediction - Jan 06, 2023

The first match of the Bangladesh Premier League 2023 is going to be played between the Chattogram Challengers and the Sylhet Strikers. The BPL has always been a popular T20 league but it has more competition from international cricket, new T20 leagues (International T20 and SA T20), and the BBL than ever before. 

As a result, player availability is going to be something that you keep a close eye on. 

Let us have a closer look at both teams and see which one is likely to come out on top. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Chattogram Challengers vs Sylhet Strikers BPL 2023. The match will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the 6th of January 2023.

CAV vs SSR Team Previews

Chattogram Challengers

The Chattogram Challengers are captained by Afif Hossain. he is also going to be one of the leading batters for the team. He first made an impression as an aggressive batter in the BPL and has since proved it on the international stage as well. 

The rest of the batting around him is quite thin. Unmukt Chand, Max O Dowd, Curtis Campher, and Shuvagata Hom don't really strike us as being a formidable batting lineup. It will be interesting to see how Afif Hossain utilizes the resources at his disposal. 

Among the bowlers, Taijul Islam, Vishwa Fernando, and Abu Jayed are perhaps the ones that will lead the attack. Farhad Reza will probably play the role of the all-rounder in this squad. 

We don't think the quality available to the Chatogram Challengers is very good and they could struggle with getting a competitive eleven on board.

Chattogram Challengers Playing 11

Usman Khan, Afif Hossain, Darwish Rasooli, Unmukt Chand, Mehedi Maruf, Al Amin, Shuvagata Hom, Malinda Pushpakumara, Mehedi Hasan Rana, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Nihaduzzaman.

Sylhet Strikers

The Sylhet Strikers are the favorite at all the cricket betting sites to win this match. A look at their squad shows a few better batting options than their competitors in this match. Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Haris, Tom Moores, Thisara Perera, Kamindu Mendia, and Towhid Hridoy are some of the players that can possibly make an impact with the bat. 

Once again, we don't think this is a great batting lineup but it does have more quality and experience at its disposal.

The bowling lineup is where the Sylhet Strikers start to really pull away. Mohammad Amir, Rubel Hossain, and Mashrafe Mortaza will lead the lineup. We will be keen to see how Bangladeshi Parliamentarian, Mashrafe Mortaza, manages to hold up on the field!


Sylhet Strikers Playing 11

Mushfiqur Rahim, Akbar Ali, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Zakir Hasan, Colin Ackermann, Towhid Hridoy, Imad Wasim, Thisara Perera, Mohammad Amir, Mashrafe Mortaza, Rejaur Rahman Raja.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain forecast in Dhaka and the temperatures should be quite comfortable. As far as the surface goes, the Shere Bangla Stadium is normally home to some low-scoring matches. There is not too much bounce or pace for the batters and the spinners tend to dominate. 

We think something around 150 is going to be quite competitive here. 

CAV vs SSR Betting Tips

Neither of the two teams competing in this match is particularly strong. However, it does appear as if the Sylhet Strikers have a slight advantage over the Chattogram Challengers in most areas. This is why we are going to back the favorites in this match. 

Bet on the Sylhet Strikers to win.

With an especially weak batting lineup, we can see the Challengers being a bit circumspect in their start. Also, the first over of a T20 inning is traditionally where the least runs are scored.
