High flying Dhaka Dynamites will face the struggling Chittagong Vikings in the first of the Chittagong edition of BPL on Thursday.
Dhaka is enjoying a pretty decent run in this campaign. Apart from the defeat against Rajshahi Kings, they had won quite comfortably in all of their matches. They started the campaign with an emphatic win against Barisal. Then after the Rajshahi defeat, they won back to back matches against Rangpur Riders and Comilla Victorians. Mehedi Maruf is enjoying a dream tournament. He is the third highest run scorer at the moment. Mohammad Shahid is also starring with his ball and is the leading wicket taker along with Shafiul Islam of Khulna. Another local lad Mosaddek Hossain is also showing glimpse of brilliance. Shakib Al Hasan will be eager to keep the momentum in the port city too.
Chittagong Vikings will try to rediscover their form in their home ground. They have won only the opening match against Comilla. After that, they lost their way by successive defeats against Rangpur, Khulna and Barisal. Tamim Iqbal will also be desperate to turn the things in his home ground too, vefore it gets too little too late.
