RRR vs CMV Match Preview

The Rangpur Riders played their last game in the competition against the same opposition as this. They ended up on the losing side in this contest against Comilla. The night game was played in Chattogram when the Riders batted first to score a modest total of 150 runs from their quota of overs and were bowled out. The Comilla Victorians easily chased this target with 14 balls to spare and lost just four wickets. The Rangpur Riders did not get off to a good start. They lost early wickets and were in trouble right from the beginning.

The Rangpur inning was stabilized first by the experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and mainly by James Neesham. Neesham smashed 69 runs from 42 balls with nine fours and two sixes, taking the Rangpur team to a respectable score. The responsibility of checking the Comilla batting charge was entirely on Shakib Al Hasan's shoulders. He bowled well to pick up three of the four wickets to fall. He returned with the figures of 4-0-20-3. Abu Hider picked up the only other wicket to fall.

The Comilla Victorians also lost their last game in the league stages of the competition to Fortune Barishal. Victorians batted first to score 140 runs, losing eight wickets from their quota of 20 overs. The Fortune Barishal team chased this target by losing four wickets in 19.4 overs. Several Comilla batters settled in and got starts during the Comilla innings. But none of them could raise a big score that could have taken the team to a big target. The top run-getter for Comilla was Jaker Ali.

Jaker Ali batted in the lower middle order and hit some hefty blows towards the end of the innings to score 38 runs from 16 balls with four sixes and two fours. The Comilla bowling attack was not in good touch. They had too few runs to defend in this contest. Musfiq Hasan was their leading bowler, with two wickets from his four overs and giving away just 19 runs. He picked wickets and tried valiantly to check the flow of runs. The only other bowlers among the wickets were Mohammad Enamul and Andre Russell, who had solitary dismissals.

Dream11 Prediction

Both these teams are going into this game with an excellent performance in the league stages. Incidentally, both these teams lost their last games in the competition. This might be because of the complacency setting in. We will bet with Rangpur Riders to win this contest because they have a slightly better record in the league stages. However, Comilla Victorians have a better overall record in BPL. So, there is nothing much separating these two teams.
