The 13th fixture of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League T20 competition will be played between the Barisal Bulls and the Chittagong Vikings on Monday. Barisal Bulls v Chittagong Vikings betting tips & predictions can be found below.
The matches for this week will be played at the MA Aziz stadium in Chittagong. With the surface set to be in action for the first time in the tournament, teams can expect a departure from the worn-out pitch in Dhaka.
The Bulls are due to welcome Chris Gayle anytime now and although it is unlikely that the big Jamaican will feature on Monday, he is likely to be with the side.
Barisal are currently in fourth place in the league standings with four points from three matches so far. Chittaging are one spot below in fifth position with just a couple of points to show for their efforts in four games this season.
Both teams were defeated in their respective fixtures coming into this game. While the Bulls were beaten by Comilla Victorians in their last game, the Dhaka Dynamites defeated the Vikings.
The Bulls could manage to put up only 89 runs on the board batting first against Comilla. Rony Talukdar, Sabbir Ragman, and Kevon Cooper were the only batsmen who got into double digits as Nuwan Kulasekara and Ashar Zaidi claimed three wickets each.
Although Comilla lost an early wicket, they were still able to go on and win with a couple of overs to spare. Mahmudul Hasan and Marlon Samuels played according to the demands of the hour on a wicket that had very little in it for the batsmen.
Chittagong were unable to cross the 100-run mark in their match against the Dynamites. Tamim Iqbal and company had been putting up stiff totals on the board in their earlier matches but were unable to cope with Mustafizur Rahman and Nasir Hossain in their last fixture as the duo claimed six Vikings batsmen.
Shahman Islam’s 45 runs from the top of the order helped Dhaka close the game without many hiccups in the end. The Dynamites lost four wickets but were able to chase down the 93-run target inside 17.1 overs and with six wickets in hand.
Neither team are very likely to chop and change ahead on Monday’s contest. Both will be happy about the state of the wicket here and whoever bats first will be looking to put some runs on the board.
