A thrilling final round of matches has changed the standings quite dramatically and ended up pitting the Chattogram Challengers against Dhaka Platoon in the Eliminator BPL 2019-20. Both the teams that are in this match would have been pretty confident of avoiding this sudden-death contest till very recently but that just shows how quickly things can change.
Both the teams are coming into this match on the back of a loss and do not have any further scope for mistakes.
This will be the third time that the Chattogram Challengers and Dhaka Platoon are playing against each other in BPL 2019-20. Both of the previous matches were won by the Chattogram Challengers and so they will be quite confident coming into this game.
Chattogram Challengers vs Dhaka Platoon Eliminator BPL 2019-20 is going to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the 13th of January 2020.
The strong Chattogram Challengers batting lineup was kept quiet in the previous match by the Rajshahi Royals. Chris Gayle, Junaid Siddique, and Imrul Kayes were all kept to a strike rate of just over 100 even though they all faced a significant number of deliveries.
The Challengers could never get the needed momentum in their inning and eventually threw away their wickets in search for runs. Chris Gayle has been known to start a bit slow in his recent years but whether he can still make up for those starts consistently by smashing sixes in the inning later is a bit doubtful.
Still, having batsmen like Mahmudullah, Chadwick Walton, and Nurul Hossain in the side gives the Chattogram Challengers a lot of batting depth and the license to be more aggressive from the start.
The bowling unit also had a very poor night as they were put to the sword by Liton Das in the previous match. Rubel Hossain, Liam Plunkett, and Nasum Ahmed were very expensive while the others were unable to have much impact also.
Rubel Hossain has been the primary spearhead of this bowling attack and a lot will depend on him in this Eliminator as well. The Chattogram Challengers are up against a side that is in very good batting form and so the bowlers need to be on their game.

Dhaka Platoon rejigged its batting order a bit for the previous match and saw some very good results. The side ended up scoring 204 runs thanks to a brilliant 91 from Mominul Haque and 68 not out from Mahedi Hasan.
This total looks even more impressive when you see that Tamim Iqbal, Thisara Perera, and Asif Ali scored a total of seven runs between them.
While Dhaka Platoon ended up losing the previous match because of some poor bowling, its batting form is very good and all the batters seem to be in good touch heading into the Eliminator.
The lack of wickets from the bowlers is going to be a concern, though. Senior bowlers like Faheem Ashraf and Thisara Perera were thrashed around the park in the previous match. Shadab Khan continued to be the best of the lot and managed to stem the flow of the runs for a short while but not a single bowler was actually able to get the breakthroughs needed.
One of the advantages that Dhaka Platoon has is the amount of experience in its bowling attack. All the players know that such bad days can happen in cricket and there is nothing to be done by dwelling on them. All of the bowlers just need to pick themselves up and move on.
A much better bowling performance is needed against the strong Chattogram Challengers side.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first
Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.
The batting conditions seem to be quite good at the Shere Bangla Stadium. Over 400 runs were scored in the most recent match and we are hoping for another good batting surface for BPL 2019-20 Eliminator as well.
The weather in Dhaka is expected to be quite good and very little chance of rain has been forecast.
It appears as if a score around 180 is the least that teams will need to aim for while batting first.
The Chattogram Challengers have won the previous two matches against Dhaka Platoon in BPL 2019-20. They also seem to have a stronger batting lineup with more power at their disposal. Dhaka Platoon’s bowling attack is a bit better, though, and that should help even out the contest.
The teams that have been chasing totals are also at an advantage and that must be taken into account while placing the bets.
Overall, though, we like the Chattogram Challengers for this match.
