Dhaka Dominators (Match Odds – 2.60):


A win in their first match, followed by six straight losses until their second win of the season. It had been a long wait, and even when it was over, Dhaka Dominators were still at the bottom of the standings.

The recent victory does not inspire much confidence in Dhaka Dominators among experts. Bowlers cannot be expected to defend low-scoring games on a consistent basis.

And it is critical that the batsmen bounce back and post a competitive total. Usman Ghani, Soumya Sarkar, and Mohammad Mithun are among the key players in this lineup who can help Dhaka turn things around.

Their inconsistency, on the other hand, is only making matters worse for the Dominators. Even if one of these players fires, the others do not, and there are no significant alliances.

Nasir Hossain and Taskin Ahmed have both shown great skill with the ball. Hossain must also accept scoring responsibility. He plays a critical role at number five.

Not only to complete the innings, but also to rebuild it after the top order has failed. Ariful Haque is another possibility for Dominators in the lower ranks. Amir Hamza and Salman Irshad are two other key bowlers to keep an eye on in this squad.

Full Squad:

Ahmed Shahzad, Al-Amin Hossain, Alok Kapali, Arafat Sunny, Ariful Haque, Delwar Hossain, Chamika Karunaratne, Mizanur Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Monir Hossain, Muktar Ali, Dilshan Munaweera, Nasir Hossain, Salman Irshad, Shan Masood, Shoriful Islam, Soumya Sarkar, Taskin Ahmed, Usman Ghani

These two combined for 104 runs for the fourth wicket. Later in the game, Haris Rauf and Rakibul Hasan contributed to the Riders’ 55-run victory. Azmatulla Omerzai took it up a notch in the following game. With the ball this time. The 22-year-old all-rounder bowled three for seventeen against Sylhet.

Mahedi Hasan and Hasan Mahmud also contributed to the Riders’ 92-9 victory over the Sixers after Nurul Hasan won the toss and chose to bowl first.

On paper, it appears to be a strong batting lineup. However, the Rangpur Riders are reliant on a few key batsmen.

They have been frequently changing the top order. As a result, the top-order is less likely to be fulfilled. And Malik will be under pressure to deliver a match-winning knock once more. The top three should be Rony Talukdar, Mohammad Naim, and Mahedi Hasan.

Aaron Jones, Alauddin Babu, Azmatullah Omarzai, Haris Rauf, Hasan Mahmud, Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Naim, Mohammad Nawaz, Ripon Mondol, Pathum Nissanka, Nurul Hasan, Parvez Hossain Emon, Rakibul Hasan, Rony Talukdar, Shamim Hossain, Shoaib Malik, Sikandar Raza, Jeffrey Vandersay
