BNT vs TCB Team Previews
The Bangla Tigers started their campaign on a winning note against the New York Strikers, but lost the latest match, played against Morrisville SAMP Army. Hazratullah Zazai who was the top-scorer for the team last season has had an underwhelming start. Evin Lewis played a blazing knock of 58 runs in the opening match to help his team set a winning total.
Bangla Tigers will miss the all-round services of James Faulkner, as well as the experience of Faf du Plessis. Matheesha Pathirana and Benny Howell have both picked up 3 wickets so far. The team has brought in players like Ben Cutting and Colin Munro who are known for their quick scoring abilities and will be hoping that they find a good rhythm soon.
Shakib Al Hasan hasn’t had much of a chance to showcase his abilities so far, and we might see some of his brilliance in this game.

The Chennai Braves’ disappointing run in the T10 League continues. After finishing last on the points table in the previous season, the Braves have lost their opening match this season too.
Chasing a modest target of 100 against the newcomers New York Strikers, the Braves could manage to score just 72 runs in their quota of 10 overs, losing the match by 27 runs. The big names at the top order, including Dawid Malan and Sikandar Raza, failed to have any impact, departing with single-digit scores. After a disappointing end to the last season, the Braves have completely overhauled their squad.
However, it remains to be seen how much benefit it gains. The only impressive batsmen for the team so far have been Carlos Brathwaite, who scored an unbeaten 22 in the opening game, and Vriitya Aravind, who scored a quick-fire 18. James Fuller was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 3 wickets for 15 runs.
