The race for the playoff spots is getting a bit tight as Comilla Warriors and Rangpur Rangers are running late for a possible top-4 finish. One of the teams that is very weak right now is the Khulna Tigers.
Three in the last five matches were out of their campaign due to defeat and now it is in danger of being out of the qualification zone. A win for the Khulna Tigers, however, would make it a four-way tie at the top of the table and things would become very interesting indeed.
The Chhatrogram Challengers are the second team in this competition and will themselves aim to win from the right-hand side at the top of the standings.
Chhatragram Challengers vs Khulna Tigers BPL 2019-20 is scheduled to be played on 4 January 2020 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet.
The CHATTOGRAM Challengers may be in third place right now, but need to ensure that it keeps the pressure on the other teams. Two defeats in his last three matches put him in the exact same boat as the villainous Tigers, who are current form-wise.
We don’t like the Challengers batting lineup very much. Lendl Simmons and Chadwick Walton are in good form, but they are taking more than the amount of responsibility in this lineup.
If both of them leave early, the middle order looks quite weak.
Junaid Siddiqui got runs in the last match but after that the other batsmen failed. Zia ur Rehman swung his bat and managed to hit four sixes but there is nothing that we can trust. The batting lineup of the Challengers certainly looks a bit weak.
Rubel Hussain and Liam Plunkett are the two standout bowlers for the Challengers in this lineup. Neither has a great tournament happened but he has the experience to make a strong comeback. Mehdi Hasan Rana, Ryan Burl and Zia ur Rehman are the other bowlers from this side.
The Khulna Tigers registered an eight-wicket win over the Chhatragram Challengers, the last time the two teams met each other. It was a time when the Khulna Tigers were moving around in full glory, though, and it could be a big time to regain that form.
The standing batsman for Khulna Tigers has been Mushfiqur Rahim, no doubt. He captained the team and gave examples with the bat. He also scored 64 runs in the previous game and followed the Khulna Tigers, but did not get the expected support.
Batting villains like Riley Rosauw, Shamsur Rahman and Najibullah Zadran make the Tigers a good batting lineup. We are not sure of the wisdom of keeping up with Mehdi Hasan and Aminul Islam at the top of the order, but Khulna Tigers feels that this is the route.
The bowling is led by Mohammad Aamir who is leading the tournament. He had taken two wickets for 27 runs in the previous match and a superb performance by Robbie Frylinck.
Sheful Islam, Shahidul Islam and Mehdi Hasan were very expensive and this was where the previous match was lost.
Khulna Tigers have a much higher quality in their favor and are better balanced for us than Challengers.
The team that wins the toss wants to bt first. It seems as if there is a good advantage of batting first and this should be kept in mind while placing your bets.

Humidity is expected in the eighties but the probability of rain is very low. Only 20% rainfall is expected so far. Sylhet’s pitch was good enough for batting. It slowed down a bit as the matches progressed with great difficulty but both sides still managed to make more than 160 in both innings.
Another similar surface where a score of around 160 can be seen is likely to be equal.
