CAV vs RRR Match Preview

The Challengers' batting performance this season has been inconsistent. Tanzid Hasan and Josh Brown are expected to open the batting for the team. In the previous match, Hasan played exceptionally well, scoring 41 runs, although it was in a losing effort. He is also the highest run-scorer for the team.

In the middle order, Tom Bruce will be a crucial player, while Shykat Ali and Shahadat Hossain will provide support. The team also boasts two talented all-rounders, Shuvagata Hom and Curtis Campher, who enhance the batting lineup.

The team's pace attack is quite strong, with Bilal Khan, Shohidul Islam, and Al-Amin Hossain leading the way. However, the spin department seems to be lacking depth, with Nihaduzzman being the only dedicated spinner.

Rony Talukdar and Reeza Hendricks may not have had a successful start in the previous match, but they are a formidable opening pair capable of scoring a significant number of runs during the Powerplay. The Rangpur Riders' greatest strength lies in their exceptional all-rounders.

Shakib Al-Hasan has been in outstanding form, accumulating 134 runs and taking 13 wickets. Similarly, Mahedi Hasan has also claimed 13 wickets while contributing 109 runs with the bat. Furthermore, the middle order comprises of Dwaine Pretorius, Nurul Hasan, and James Neesham.

Imran Tahir delivered an exceptional performance in the last match, taking a five-wicket haul. The seam attack will be spearheaded by Hasan Mahmud, who has 10 wickets to his name.


Weather Report

The weather is likely to be clear with temperatures of between 20 and 25 degrees. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is excellent to bat on. There is plenty of bounce and pace, especially in the first half and the batsmen will be able to play their shots naturally.

The pitch does slow down a bit during the second innings and the spinners will get some grip and turn, making life difficult for the batsmen. Anything over 180 can be difficult to chase on this ground.
