Chittagong Vikings went on to score the highest score of Bangladesh Premier League history to rise to the second spot in the points table, just behind Dhaka Dynamites. They'll have an opportunity to get alongside Dhaka Dynamites, separated only by net run rate, in their next game where they face the Dynamites at Dhaka on 21st January. Dhaka Dynamites have done exceedingly well in the tournament with five wins in six matches and have maintained their supremacy at the ladder since the beginning of BBL 2019. The top of the table clashes are always exciting and this one promises to be nothing less.
Dhaka Dynamites returned to their regular best against Sylhet Sixers after facing a surprise loss from Rajshahi Kings in an earlier encounter. The win took Dynamites to the top of the table with the super-impressive net run rate of 1.942.
Against the Sixers, the Dynamites bowlers did exceedingly well in keeping one end tied up while David Warner kept threatening to take the game away throughout the Sixers' innings. Picking wickets at the regular intervals helped their cause as everyone contributed with the ball in one way or the other. They eventually restricted Sylhet Sixers to a manageable total of 158.
Chasing a reasonable total, the kind of start the Dynamites got off to was the last thing they'd have asked for. They lost three quick wickets - as early as in the first five overs with not many runs on the board. However, with the likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Andre Russell yet to come to the crease, the Dynamites were still in the business. Shakib Al Hasan played a composed knock of 61 in 41 deliveries and Andre Russell sealed the deal with his quick-fire 40 off just 21 balls. Dhaka's depth in their batting lineup has often taken them out of troubling situations and that is what makes them one of the toughest sides to beat in the tournament.

The latest success for Chittagong Vikings was against Khulna Titans which propelled the Vikings ahead of Victorians and Rangpur Riders as far as points table is concerned. They have four wins in five matches and another couple of wins should ascertain their top-four finish which they'll be desperate to do as soon as possible.
Yasir Ali and Mushfiqur Rahim played vital knocks in their last match which helped the Vikings score 214 in the first innings and eventually defeat Titans by 26 runs. Unlike the initial few matches, where Chittagong Vikings relied heavily on Robbie Frylink, the highlight of their last couple of wins has been the brilliant team effort propelling them to wins in the respective matches.
It was nothing different in their last match as well, against Khulna Titans, where as many as four bowlers ended up picking at least one wicket. Surprisingly, Cameron Delport ended up as the pick of the bowlers with two wickets and a superb economy rate, but the team wouldn't mind him contributing considering the balance it imparts to their lineup. There were useful contributions from all their batsmen which build a monumental total of 214.

With two top of the teams taking on each other, a high-voltage contest is always on the cards. Both the teams have lost just one match in the competition and are yet to face each other. Considering the way the two teams have done in their recent matches, it's hard to pick between the sides. However, the Dynamites appear to be better-balanced, at least on paper and have the home advantage. They bat deep which could really be a difference between a win and a loss, which alongside other above-mentioned reasons, makes them better-placed to win the upcoming encounter.
