Match Preview for Dream11 Fantasy:
Khulna Tigers are still due to play two games in the group stage and they have almost confirmed as one of the sides to qualify for the play-offs. They have 12 points with six wins in 10 games and they would be eager to replicate their good form in the next game as well.
In batting, they have Najmul Hossain Shanto, Rilee Rossouw and Mushfiqur Rahim, who are in impressive form with the bat in BPL 2019-20. On the other hand, their bowling unit has also produced some brilliant performance in the previous games and the same would be expected from them in the next game against Dhaka Platoon.
Dhaka Platoon are currently ranked 2nd in the points table and they will look to end their group stage on a high note by defeating Tigers. Their high profile players have come up with some impressive performances in the ongoing tournament and the same would be expected from them in the last group stage game of their side in BPL 2019-20.
The atmosphere is expected to clear and perfect for a cricket match. The wind is expected to blow at a rate from 13-15 km/hr whereas temperature will deviate between 13 and 24 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The pitch at Shere Bangla Stadium is expected to offer some turn to the spinners and the batsmen will find it difficult to smash them across the park. On the other hand, the fast bowlers will have to hit in the right areas to get wickets otherwise they will get hit for runs very easily. Also, the side winning the toss will look to bat first to take advantage of batting-friendly conditions in the first hours of the game.
