After such a rollicking start to the tournament, only a few would have imagined the Dynamites struggling to make it to the top-four. However, thanks to some reckless performances, they are now out of the top four and need to win at least one of their remaining two matches to get back in there. On the contrary, Comilla Victorians have risen from the bottom-half to the second spot in the points table. The Victorians and the Dynamites are set to face each other off in the upcoming BPL game which is to be played at Dhaka on 1st of February. With a qualification spot at stake, we expect the Dynamites to come hard at Victorians in the upcoming match.
18 matches have passed since in Bangladesh Premier League Dhaka Dynamites last registered a win in Bangladesh Premier League. Their last win was against Sylhet Sixers and since then they've lost four matches and haven't looked convincing in any of those. Their most recent loss was against Chittagong Vikings where they fell short by a narrow margin of 11-runs.
Dhaka Dynamites were in the game at various points during their chase after being down and out. They lost their first three wickets for just 23 before Shakib al Hasan and Nurul Hasan bailed them out with a fifty run stand. Just when they were looking to launch a counter-attack against the Vikings' bowlers, Nurul Hasan was trapped in front by Delport. The loss of Kieren Pollard, who was ran-out, left Dynamites in shambles. Andre Russell and Shakib Al Hasan brought them back into contention with a remarkable partnership, but incredible death bowling by Vikings handed Dynamites their fourth consecutive loss in the competition.
Earlier with a ball, their bowlers failed to put any sort of pressure on Vikings' batsmen at any stage of the innings. Barring Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, no bowler was able to contain Victorians, let alone pick wickets. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine returned with the reasonable figures of 4-0-38-3 and 4-0-20-2 respectively.
SP Narine, WU Tharanga, R Talukdar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mizanur Rahman, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Shuvagata Hom, Nurul Hasan, Rubel Hossain, K Shahadat Hossain.
Without any major contribution either in batting or in bowling, it's remarkable to see Comilla Victorians climb to the second spot in the points table. None of their batsmen of bowlers are among the top three players of the respective departments, but the seven wins speak volumes about the all-round contribution from their team members. An incredible team effort in the last three matches has pushed them almost to the top from the bottom of the table.
While it was the effort of their batsmen which got them a win against Khulna Titans, their bowlers bowled beautifully against Chittagong Vikings in their last game. Bowling first on a tricky surface, their bowlers utilized the wet conditions to perfection. Mohammad Saifudding was brilliant in the opening burst and left Vikings tottering at 2 down for 3. All their bowlers kept things tight in the middle overs as they never allowed Vikings to get going.
Chasing a total of just 117, Comilla Victorians didn't really have to labor hard. Although they lost a few wickets, Tamim Iqbal's stay at the crease imbibed confidence. He was patient throughout his innings and laid a solid foundation with 65-run second wicket partnership with Shamsur Rahman. Victorians eventually got home with three wickets in hand and 20 balls to spare.

Although Dhaka Dynamites can still afford to lose this match and still get into the top four, they'll want to ensure that the situation doesn't get to the do-or-die stage. Comilla Victorians, on the other hand, are placed perfectly at the second spot and a win will only ascertain their top-two finish. Both the sides have a lot to gain in the upcoming encounter. Comilla Victorians are coming into the match with three back to back wins behind them and have the momentum which can be critical in the shortest version of the game. With both bowling and batting doing well, the Victorians are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
