CAV vs DDS Match Preview

Chattogram will go into this match in fourth position on the seven-team points table. They have won five and lost four matches. Three of those defeats have come in their last four matches. They need to bounce back against Dhaka - and have the right personnel in play to do this.

Tanzid Hasan, Shahadat Hossain and Avishka Fernando have been the Challengers' standout performers with the bat this BPL season - and are good picks for your Dream11 selections. Hasan has been the most impressive en route to 183 runs in eight innings, including 41 against the Comilla Victorians and 50 against the Sylhet Strikers recently.

Bilal Khan is an excellent investment among Chattogram's bowlers. Capped over 100 times in ODI and T20I cricket by Oman, the 35-year-old seamer is the Challengers' most prolific bowler this BPL season with 10 wickets in nine matches. His economy rate is also among the best.

Dhaka are at the very bottom of the standings. They won their first match, but have since lost nine in a row. It's highly unlikely they will reach the play-off stage of the tournament, but a win over Chattogram could keep them in marginal contention.

Alex Ross has been excellent with the bat for Dhaka. How this batter has not yet played international cricket for Australia is perplexing. His last three innings in the BPL have been 89 not out, 52 and 21 not out. He knows how to succeed in challenging conditions in Bangladesh.

Shoriful Islam has raced to 18 wickets in 10 matches for Durdanto Dhaka this BPL season. To average almost two wickets per match for an extended period, in this format, is remarkable. He is one of the best left-arm seamers on display in T20 cricket around the world at the moment.

Weather Report

Characteristically hot and humid conditions are forecast in Chattogram on matchday. There is no suggestion of rain. We should get a full fixture in here.

Pitch Report

The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium will be the venue for this match. The first three BPL matches here this season yielded first-innings totals of 186, 219 and 239. This is a relatively high-scoring ground.

It's well worth playing at least two spinners here - and perhaps open the bowling with one of them and deploy a second or third seamer first change after the six-over powerplay.

Notable stats

Shoriful Islam top of the pops

Islam is the leading wicket-taker overall this BPL season. He has 18 wickets - five more than any other bowler.

Team News

Batter Adam Rossington has joined Dhaka after winning the SA20 title with the Sunrisers Eastern Cape in South Africa recently. Australian Josh Brown is still available for Chattogram after starring in the Big Bash League.

Dream11 Prediction

The Chattogram Challengers should beat Durdanto Dhaka easily here. Dhaka have just one win to Chattogram's five this season - and that gap is bound to widen.

Top Picks

Shoriful Islam: Don't look past the most prolific bowler in the 2024 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League so far.

Alex Ross: Stick this man in the middle of your batting order and look forward to plenty of runs.

Bilal Khan: For experience and wily skills during or after the powerplay, Khan is a solid pick among the bowlers.
