The 2019-20 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League is unique in that the Bangladesh Cricket Board has taken over the running of all the teams and is using it as a platform to spot talent for the upcoming T20 World Cup. While this may sound reasonable in theory, in practice it involves wage cuts for players and strange team composition instructions that do not always make complete sense.
A number of the top Bangladesh players are unhappy about the manner in which this season of the BPL is going to be run but there is nothing much they can do about it.
The second day of cricket in BPL 2019-20 will see Dhaka Platoon take on the Rajshahi Royals as both teams get their campaign on the way.
Dhaka Platoon vs Rajshahi Royals BPL 2019-20 is going to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the 12th of December 2019.
Dhaka Platoon has a very good squad to pick from and is expected to be one of the serious contenders for the title. The team is going to be led by the experienced Mashrafe Mortaza and have Tamim Iqbal in there as well.
These are two of the senior-most players in Bangladesh cricket and will ensure that there is plenty of crown support for the home side. Mominul Haque, Laurie Evans, and Asif Ali are the batsmen in the squad while Thisara Perera, Shahid Afridi, and Shadab Khan are the all-round options available for selection.
We think that Shahid Afridi and Thisara Perera are sure to be picked because of their proven abilities to help in both areas of the game.
Wahab Riaz is a part of the squad and has been impressing with some serious pace over in the Mzansi Super League. He is another player that we would pick in the playing eleven for sure.
There is plenty of experience in the Dhaka Platoon side with the balance provided by quality all-rounders.
Ariful Haque, Jaker Ali Anik, Tamim Iqbal, Laurie Evans, SMSK Afridi, Thisara Perera, Anamul Haque, Wahab Riaz, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mahedi Hasan, Hasan Mahmud.
Any T20 side that has Andre Russell in its lineup is one that is going to be taken very seriously by the opposition. The Rajshahi Royals are being led by Andre Russell this season and can expect him to take the responsibility in crunch situations.
We don’t think it is a great move for Russell to be the captain, though, since he tends to leave himself too far back in the batting lineup and does not bowl often enough. It is a move that could prevent the Rajshahi Royals from seeing the best of Andre Russell.
Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Nawaz, and Mohammad Irfan are all listed in the Rajshahi squad. We think that Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Nawaz walk into this side with ease. They are both excellent players of spin, bowl spin themselves, and will add a lot of depth to the batting.
Ravi Bopara, Hazratullah Zazai, Afif Hossain, and Liton Das are the players in the squad that will help shepherd the batting apart from Andre Russell, of course.
The big advantage of the Rajshahi Royals seems to the number of players that can do more than one job. The bowling seems a bit thin, though, and could be one of the areas where the Royals end up struggling.
Liton Das, Shoaib Malik, Hazratullah Zazai, Afif Hossain, Alok Kapali, Andre Russell, RS Bopara, Taijul Islam, Abu Jayed, Minhajul Abedin Afridi, Farhad Reza.

A perfectly sunny day has been forecast for Dhaka for match day. The pitch at the Shere Bangla Stadium is going to be flat and good for batting. It is going to be a bit slow and help the spinners, as is the case for most surfaces in Bangladesh but nothing that is going to be excessive.
A score of around 170-180 appears to be par for the surface.
We like the power and dynamism that the Rajshahi Royals bring to the table and think that will serve them well in this match. Andre Russell is an obvious trump-card to have in the pocket as well. The team selection and strategy are the only concerns we have from them in this match.
Bet on the Rajshahi Royals to win.
