The 19th game of the 2019 Bangladesh Premier League will be played between Dhaka Platoon and Sylhet Thunder at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhary Stadium in Chattogram.
The match starts at 01:30 PM IST (7:30 am GMT) (1:00 PM Local). It can be streamed live on Fan code in India.
Dhaka Platoons are currently ranked 5th with four ratings in the points table. However, they would be eager to grab two important points in the upcoming game against Sylhet Thunder that will help them to improve their position in the BPL 2019-20 log. Mominul Haque, the left-handed opener looks is in good form with the bat and in the previous game, he scored a brilliant half-century. He will look to replicate his form in the next game in order to help his side in winning the match. However, they need to fill the voids in their bowling that looks relatively weak in comparison to their batting.
Sylhet Thunder finally won their first game after facing four consecutive defeats in BPL 2019-20. Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles did a commendable job with the bat with the former scoring 103 runs and latter mustered 90 runs. It helped their side in winning their first game for the season. The duo will look to continue with their peach form and score big against Platoons.
With no chances of rain, it is expected to be a perfect day for a cricket match. However, the temperature is expected to deviate between 15 and 22 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhary Stadium has proved to be beneficial for the batsmen. However, the bowlers will also play an important role in the latter part of the match as they will start getting some assistance from the wicket. The side winning the toss will look to bat first because it is relatively easy to chase on this ground as far as trends are concerned.
