The Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka is set to host the third match of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League when the Sylhet Superstars take on the Chittagong Vikings. Sylhet Superstars v Chittagong Vikings betting tips & predictions can be found below.
The Superstars will be led by Mushfiqur Rahim in this edition of the BPL. The Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman has been an ever-present in the national team and has been in decent form for his country this season.
Abdur Razzak and Rubel Hossain are the two other Bangladesh internationals in this squad who can give any opposition a run for their money. There is also no dearth of destructive big-hitters in this squad with Shahid Afridi and Kieron Pollard in the lineup.
England batsman Ravi Bopara and Australian T20 specialist batsman Brad Hodge have also been picked by the side which looks to have a nice balance about it. Pakistan seamer Sohail Tanvir finds a place as well whilst Sri Lankan mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis will hope to have a major say in the upcoming matches.
Chittagong are to be in action on Sunday when they take on the Rangpur Riders in the inaugural match of the tournament. They will get into the thick of things the very next day for this match-up. Led by Tamim Iqbal, Chittagong have a very good all-round squad that can be ideal for different situations.
Yasir Ali and Taskin Ahmed are two Bangladesh youngsters who have found a roster spot here and they will look to take full advantage. As far as international presence is concerned, the Akmal brothers from Pakistan will look to turn on the heat on the opposition.
Mohammad Amir, back on the circuit after a lengthy ban for spot-fixing, will also be looking to impress as he looks to break into the Pakistan side. However, it is Saeed Ajmal who can prove to be the man for this team. Ajmal can be an extremely dangerous customer in these conditions but it will be interesting to see if his remodelled action allows for that.
