Second-seeded Fortune Barishal will square off against Dhaka Dominators on Tuesday evening at Sher-E-Bangla International Stadium. With six wins in eight games, Fortune Barishal are placed among the top two teams in the table, while Dhaka Dominators ended their six-match losing streak in their last game.
Dominators' second victory in the tournament came on the back of their bowlers as they produced a spectacular performance to defend 108. Dominators must have taken a lot of confidence with that victory and might stand tall against Fortune Barishal.
The surface at Sher-E-Bangla Stadium has been a bowling-friendly wicket and we have seen bowlers dominate the proceedings in a couple of games. The average 1st inning score on the surface has been 161 and the captain might look to chase if they win the toss.
Fortune Barishal are coming into this game on the back of a comprehensive performance against Chattogram Challengers. Barishal's opener Anamul Haque batted brilliantly at the top-order by scoring 78 off just 50 balls, while Karim Janat added a quick 31 off 12, towards the end. Shakib Al-Hasan is the leading run-scorer for the team and has the second most in the competition. Iftikhar Ahmed is another key batter in the squad.
Meanwhile, Taskin Ahmed's four-wicket haul helped Dhaka Dominators to defend 108. Skipper Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain bagged two wickets each. Dominators had a horrific outing with the bat, but it was the bowlers who produced an exceptional performance to clinch the second win in the edition. The upcoming fixture will be an exciting contest between Barishal's batters and Dominators bowlers.
Probable playing XI:
Usman Ghani, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Mizanur Rahman, Nasir Hossain (c), Ariful Haque, Alex Blake, Amir Hamza, Taskin Ahmed, Al-Amin Hossain, Salman Irshad
Saif Hassan, Chaturanga de Silva, Anamul Haque (wk), Shakib Al Hasan (c), Iftikhar Ahmed, Mahmudullah, Karim Janat, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Kamrul Islam, Salman Hossain, Khaled Ahmed
While both the teams are coming into this game on the back of impressive wins, Fortune Barishal are most likely to win the next fixture.
