Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The 2019-20 Bangladesh Premier League is starting to pick up and the eighth encounter will see two teams- Dhaka Platoon and Sylhet Thunder- desperate to turn their fortune around after a dismal start to their campaign.
Both teams are coming off a disastrous last outing where they were beaten comprehensively by Rajshahi Royals. While Dhaka Platoon went down to the Royals by nine wickets after they were unable to defend their underwhelming total of 9-134, Sylhet Thunder was knocked over by eight wickets after their batting unit capitulated to 91 all-out in 15.3 overs.
Another perfect day for cricket is expected in Dhaka on Saturday. According to the weather report, the temperatures will fluctuate between 20-28 degrees Celsius and the humidity will be around 57℅.
Chasing has proved to be significantly easier under lights with the dew setting in. Both sides will be looking to bowl first and chase the total later.
