This is the seventh match in this seasons BPL fixture and title favorites Dhaka Dynamites will be facing the newcomer to the franchise Rajshahi Kings at 7.15 in the evening in Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. The Dynamites will be looking for their second win to climb up the point table which is topped by Rangpur Riders currently. While the Kings will yearn for their first ever win at BPL as a new franchise in this edition.
Dhaka Dynamites will be confident for this match as they come from a comprehensive win against Barisal Bulls at their first match of BPL 2016. Dhaka have a squad full of international and local talents. Though there are many big names in T20 arena in the Dynamites squad like Bravo, Sangakara, Russell, Bopara, but it was the local boys who shone brilliantly at the first match and brought them the sweet smell of victory. Mohammad Shahid claimed 3 wickets with his knack for accuracy at the pitch with the ball and Mehedi Maruf blasted a brilliant 75 of just 45 balls to finish the match. Russell maybe suffering from a niggle after a field injury last match but that isn’t that serious and we hope to see him in action again today.
Kings lost a very close match against Titans. It was a nail-biter of a match which went up to the last ball to give us a final result. Abul Hasan Raju devastated the Titans batting with his 5 wicket haul which was also the best bowling figure by a Bangladeshi in BPL history. Young sensation Miraz proved his mettle with the ball too as he got his first wicket in BPL at his first over. Mr. Consistent Mominul Hoque also seem to be in rhythm as he and Kings skipper Sammy almost saw through the match with 95 runs between them. Kings will just have to shake off the disappointing defeat and stand firm for their clash against the Dynamites.
Whatever the outcome is, it’s going to be an interesting match for sure.
