The seventh match of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League will be played between the Rangpur Riders and the Dhaka Dynamites on Wednesday. Rangpur Riders v Dhaka Dynamites betting tips & predictions can be found below.
The Riders got off to a great start when they beat the Chittagong Vikings by two wickets on the inaugural match of the competition. However, they have since fallen to a defeat to the Barisal Bulls on Monday.
Shakib Al Hasan and Thisara Perera picked up six wickets between them on the occasion but were unable to stop the Bulls post a challenging score. Mahmadullah top-scored for the Bulls with a half-century to his name with Nadif Chowdhury and Kevon Cooper playing important hands as well for the side.
Rangpur were shot out for 142 runs during the chase. The side had got off to a slow start with Lendl Simmons, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib, and Misbah-ul-Haq all back in the pavilion inside 11..4 overs. Mohammad Mithun waged a lonely battle with absolutely no support at the other end with the wicket-keeper scoring 55 off 32 deliveries.
The Dhaka Dynamites have a couple of rest days between their first and second match this season. Their only match so far had been against the Comilla Victorians on the first day of the season. Incidentally, the side won that contest by six wickets.
A sterling bowling effort from Dhaka which saw Abul Hasan claim three scalps limited the Victorians to 110 runs in the first period of play. Shamsur Rahman departed early on but the second-wicket partnership between Nasir Jamshed and Kumar Sangakkara helped the Dynamites close out a largely one-sided contest.
The Dynamites will take confidence from their approach to the last game but their batting is still untested. The Riders on the other hand will know their strengths and weaknesses a bit more following their defeat on Monday. This will be a good chance for them to work on the latter ahead of some important matches.
