Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The Bangabandhu BPL is gradually moving towards its business end and the 25th game will see Sylhet Thunder square off against Rangpur Rangers. Sylhet Thunder’s dismal campaign continued against Khulna Tigers as they fell to their sixth defeat of the tournament in seven games after their bowlers failed to defend the total of 4-157 thanks to a whirlwind 62-ball 87 from Mehidy Hasan and an equally compelling 31-ball 41 by Nazmul Hossain Shanto.
They’ll now face Rangpur Rangers, who too have endured a dismal campaign thus far. After having lost five of their six completed fixtures, the Rangers are in desperate need of a revival. They too come into this game after having lost to Khulna Tigers when they failed to chase down 7-182, and could only manage a mere 9-130 after 20 overs.
It is expected to be an overcast day in Dhaka on Monday. According to the weather report, the temperatures are expected to hover between 13 and 23 degrees Celsius while the humidity will be around the 72% mark.
The pitch at the Shere-e-Bangla stadium has provided a great balance with the bat and the ball. While the batsman has chipped in with big scores, the bowlers too have had their say.

Rangpur Rangers– The Rangers were boosted by the inclusion of Shane Watson in the last game and even though he got out for a mere 5, he is too good a batsman to miss out often.
