The top-4 teams of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-2020 season have already been decided. There is nothing that can happen in the last couple of remaining games that can change all that. What is up for grabs, however, is a potential finishing place in the top-2.
The Chattogram Challengers are currently on 16 points and could make sure of their place at the top of the table with a win in this match. The Rajshahi Royals have 14 points and the worst net run-rate among the four teams that have qualified. It will take something really special for them to be able to win big enough to jump the queue.
Chattogram Challengers vs Rajshahi Royals BPL 2019-20 is going to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the 11th of January 2020.
After insisting for the longest time that he was taking a break and not playing the BPL this season, Chris Gayle is back for the Chattogram Challengers and making his presence felt. He smashed three sixes and a four in a short 10 ball stay in the previous match.
He partnered with the prolific Lendl Simmons at the top of the order and ensured that the Chattogram Challengers chased down their target of 167 with ease. The batting lineup of the Chattogram Challengers is looking really strong at the moment.
They have Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, and Chadwick Walton in their top-5 followed by some useful lower-order batters as well. It's easy to see this batting lineup being dominant in the upcoming matches as well.
Rubel Hossain and Ziaur Rahman shared six wickets between them in the previous match and kept the run-scoring under control. Some of the other bowlers went for a few runs but there was never any time when it looked like the Chattogram Challengers had lost control.
Considering the fact that the match was played against the Rajshahi Royals, their opponents in this match again, the bowlers are going to be full of confidence.
Mahmudullah, M Junaid Siddique, Imrul Kayes, Chris Gayle, Nurul Hasan, CAK Walton, Rubel Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, RR Emrit, LE Plunkett, Ziaur Rahman.
The Rajshahi Royals are currently in the fourth place on the BPL league table and want to avoid an Eliminator clash if possible. This can only be possible if the Royals win by a massive margin. Considering their recent form and the fact that they were just beaten soundly by the same opponents in the previous match, the chances of that happening are not very good.
The Rajshahi Royals have lost some momentum at a crucial juncture in the tournament but it does not make them a bad side. They have some proven champions in their team like Shoaib Malik, Andre Russell, and Ravi Bopara.
The presence of these three quality all-rounders will always make them dangerous. Plus we think that Andre Russell would like to prove a point and help his side win a match when some of the best West Indian players are in opposition.
Liton Das has been in very good touch as well and is scoring runs freely. If he can find some support from the other batsmen like Atif Hossain and Irfan Sukkur then the Rajshahi Royals would be in good positions much more often.
Andre Russell tried his short ball tactic against Lendl Simmons and Chris Gayle in the previous match and it did not quite work out. A change of tactic would be in order for this match and perhaps turning to spin early may be the way to go.
In Mohammad Irfan, Andre Russell, Ravi Bopara, Taijul Islam, and Farhad Reza, the Rajshahi Royals have plenty of options at their disposal.
The current form of the Rajshahi Royals may not be very good but their fundamental strength cannot be denied.
Alok Kapali, Farhad Reza, Kamrul Islam, Taijul Islam, Abu Jayed, Liton Das, Afif Hossain, Shoaib Malik, RS Bopara, Andre Russell, Mohammad Irfan.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The weather forecast for Dhaka is pretty good and we should have a full uninterrupted match. The conditions have become more bowler-friendly but the batsmen are still being able to cope pretty nicely. A couple of the pitches on the Shere Bangla square are taking a lot of turn but the other surfaces are better.
We could have a used surface for this match as the groundsman is going to keep his best stuff for the playoffs and finals.
A score of around 150 should be seen as competitive.
We are backing the Rajshsahi Royals in this match. They are going through a bit of rough patch but certainly have the players to turn things around. They have the batting strength needed and are blessed with the all-round talent to give it an excellent balance. They also need the win more than the Chattogram Challengers, something that can be a big motivating factor.
Bet on the Rajshahi Royals to win.
