Sylhet Thunder started the tournament in the worst possible start as they lost each of the three matches they played in Dhaka during the first week of the tournament. They lost by five wickets against Chattogram Challengers before an 8-wicket loss and 24-run defeat against Rajshahi Royals and Dhaka Platoon respectively. They will be facing the Challengers once again on Tuesday. The Chattogram team defeated Sylhet and Rangpur Rangers but lost to Khulna Tigers. The Challengers are currently placed at No.3 in the points table.
The first day of BPL 2019/20 in Chattogram is expected to end without any interruption due to rain.
The Chattogram track has been a high-scoring one in the night matches especially during the BPL. In five matches hosted by the venue in the 2018/19 edition, four games recorded totals over 180. The chasing team won two of those showing how good and consistent the pitch here has been throughout 40 overs. A game with 320+ aggregate is expected for the match between Challengers and Thunder on Tuesday.
Average first innings score: 170 (Night T20 matches in 2019)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 3
