Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Sylhet Thunder is almost out of the playoffs race as they lost seven out of the eight games played so far. They need to win all four upcoming matches and let the luck favour them to reach the playoffs. Rangpur Rangers have also struggled a lot in the BPL 19-20 and won just three out of the eight matches they played. Winning all their remaining games is the only way to stay alive on the playoffs race for the Rangers.
Both the sides boast of some fierce T20 players and it is baffling to see them struggling this season. Having said that, the possible must-win situation might bring the best out of them and we might get to witness a cracker of a contest on Friday.
It is expected to be a cloudy day on Friday in Sylhet. Rain is likely to play spoilsport in the first game of the day. Though the chances of showers reduce to 10-15% for this game a delayed start can’t be ruled out. However, the temperature is expected to hover around 16-17 Degree Celsius during the match time according to AccuWeather.
The Pitch is expected to help batsmen more as it is considered as a batting paradise. So many big totals were recorded in the last two years on the matches which began after 5 pm.
Average first innings score: 159 (6 Night T20 matches since 2019) (Cumilla’s first innings score considered)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2 (Sylhet vs Cummila match result not considered)
