Preview for Dream11 Fantasy.
The 11th game of the Bangabandhu BPL 2019 will see bottom-placed Rangpur Rangers square off against Cumilla Warriors. This will be the second meeting between these two sides.
Rangpur Rangers will be looking to get their fledgeling campaign back on track after having lost both of their matches thus far. And, what better way than to do it by avenging the 105-run loss they suffered at the hands of Cumilla Warriors in their previous match-up.
The Warriors, on the other hand, will be looking to get back to winning ways after having suffered a 20-run defeat in their previous encounter against Dhaka Platoon where they failed to chase down 7-180.
It is expected to be another perfect day for T20 cricket in Chattogram. According to the weather report, the temperatures are expected to fluctuate between 18 and 25 degrees Celsius while humidity is expected to hover around 63%.
In the only game played at the venue this season, Rajshahi Royals hammered the Khulna Tigers’ bowling attack to the tune of 189 with Shoaib Malik top-scoring with 87. That should give you a fair idea as to how the pitch is expected to behave.
Average 1st innings score: 145 [In 20 T20Is played at the venue]

Cumilla Warriors- The likes of Bhanuka Rajapaksa , Soumya Sarkar  and Dawid Malan  have been guilty of not converting their starts into a really big innings, like their captain Dasun Shanaka [75 off 31 balls vs Rangpur Riders] did, the last time these two sides squared off against each other. As far as bowling is concerned, the likes of Al-Amin Hossain, Abu Hider Rony and Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be the key.
Rangpur Rangers- Mohammad Naim scored a whirlwind 78 off 54 balls in the last game but he’ll hope that the likes of Mohammad Shahzad, Tom Abell and Mohammad Nabi chip in a lot more with the bat than they have thus far. All-rounder Lewis Gregory and Mohammad Nabi can be their X-factor while Mustafizur Rahman will lead the bowling unit.

Rangpur Rangers are expected to win.
