The final of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019 is about to be played and we think it no one will disagree that the two best teams have made it to this stage. The Dhaka Dynamites switched on after being faced with must-win situations and are now in yet another BPL final. They will be facing the Comilla Victorians who took the direct route to the Bangladesh Premier League 2019 final.
They finished in the top-2 in the group stages and then won Qualifier 1.
The Comilla Victorians will be well rested ahead of the final while the Dhaka Dynamites will be confident they have got over their mid-season slump. Some of the biggest names in T20 cricket are going to be on display in this contest and we are hoping for a nail-biting conclusion to the 2019 season of the Bangladesh Premier League.
The Comilla Victorians are one of the best-balanced teams we have seen this season. The presence of Thisara Perera and Shahid Afridi in the middle gives them a lot of fluidity. This is not something that is unique to them in this match, though, as the Dhaka Dynamites are loaded with all-round match winners as well.
Getting runs at the top of the inning has been crucial in the Bangladesh Premier League knockouts and this is why the role of Tamim Iqbal is going to be so important. There is no batsman who has done more for Bangladesh cricket than Tamim Iqbal. He is one of the senior most leaders of Bangladesh cricket and puts a lot of importance to performing well in the Bangladesh Premier League.
We have found him to be a bit overzealous to attack this season and hope that he will temper himself. Tamim will be opening the batting with Evin Lewis in the side who helped Comilla Victorians chase down a tricky total with ease in Qualifier 1.
Evin Lewis is one of the cleanest hitters of the cricket ball and we have been very impressed at the manner in which he has adapted to the Bangladeshi surfaces. Anamul Haque and SHamsur Rahman have been very good for the Comilla Victorians as well. Both players have shown an ability to clear the boundaries and to play fearless cricket under pressure.
With Imrul Kayes, Thisara Perera, and Shahid Afridi in the lineup as well, the Comilla Victorians have a batting lineup as strong as that of the Dhaka Dynamites.
The bowling lineup for the Comilla Victorians will need to be at its best when it comes to the final of the BPL. They are going to be facing some ferocious hitters of the ball and cannot afford any mistakes. Shahid Afridi is our pick to lead from the front in this match with Wahab Riaz performing well also.
Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Imrul Kayes, Anamul Haque, Shamsur Rahman, SMSK Afridi, Thisara Perera, Mohammad Saifuddin, Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan, Sanjit Saha.
The Dhaka Dynamites always seem to find a way to end up playing for the title in the Bangladesh Premier League. They are the most successful side in the history of the tournament and are going to be very hard to stop.
Like the Comilla Victorians, the Dhaka Dynamites are a well-balanced side. They have Shakib Al Hasan, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, and Sunil Narine as all-rounders to provide them exceptional stability and flexibility.
With four world-class players in both the batting and bowling department to start with and an additional seven to help fill in the gaps, the Dhaka Dynamites are very difficult to stop. The addition of Upul Tharanga at the top of the order is pretty good in our opinion too.
He scored a valuable fifty in the Eliminator and will be one of the biggest wickets in the BPL 2019 Final as well. The Dhaka Dynamites batting is not fool-proof, though. They can sometimes collapse in a heap and were in a spot of bother in the last match as well.
That is when Andre Russell came out and bludgeoned five sixes in the space of three overs to end the contest.
The mere presence of so many match winners in the Dhaka Dynamites lineup ensures that the opposition is always trying to score the extra 20 runs or keep looking for wickets.
It's not just about the all-rounder, though. Rubel Hossain picked up four wickets and provide his worth to the side again. As a frontline fast bowler for his country, Rubel Hossain is another player to watch out for in this final match of the BPL.
One of the things that we think the Dhaka Dynamites have to worry about it being too conservative. They must not try to hoard their resources and keep delaying their power hitters from entering the scene. This has been something that Shakib AL Hasan has done as a captain and it could backfire.
Chasing is something that the Dhaka Dynamites would be much more comfortable doing.

The Bangladesh Premier League 2019 Final between the Comilla Victorians and the Dhaka Dynamites is going to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The pitch has been very consistent throughout the Bangladesh Premier League and so there is no reason to expect anything different in this match.
A slow pitch with low bounce and no pace to work with is going to be on offer. Maximizing the runs scoring with the new ball is going to key and wickets can fall in clusters. The weather is expected to be clear on match day.
These are two evenly matched teams and we could have an epic final on our hands. There is resiliency in both sides to fight back from difficult positions with bat and ball. The experience of having done this before and winning high-pressure matches in the last few matches gives the Dhaka Dynamites the edge. Only just, though, and so hedging with some in-play betting might be a good option in this match.
Back the Dhaka Dynamites to win.
