Dhaka Platoon vs Rangpur Rangers: BPL 2019 Match Prediction

The 39th match of BPL 2019-20 will see Dhaka Platoon take on Rangpur Rangers on Friday.

Dhaka Platoon has played good cricket in this year’s competition and managed to secure 12 points in 9 matches so far this season. However, Mashrafe Mortaza and co. will be looking to produce their best cricket in this must-win game.

On the other hand, Rangpur Rangers have failed to make an impact as a unit in BPL 2019-20. The side has no chance of qualifying for the playoffs but will be looking to end their campaign on a winning note.

Dhaka Platoon had secured a thumping 61-run win over Rangpur Rangers when the 2 sides had met the last time.

Dhaka Platoon performance in BPL 2019:

Dhaka Platoon will need to make significant improvements in this contest after producing a timid batting display against the same opponent in the last game. In the previous fixture, Dhaka Platoon struggled to get going in their innings and were reduced to 59 for 3 in 8.4 overs.

Tamim Iqbal once again delivered the goods with the bat and finished the innings with the top-score of 40 runs with the help of five boundaries.

Bowling all-rounder Shadab Khan’s late blitz saw Dhaka Platoon post 145 runs in their 20 overs. Shadab scored unbeaten 31 runs off 19 balls with the help of one four and three sixes.

For this must-win game, the team management will be once again depending on in-form pugnacious opener Tamim, who is currently Dhaka Platoon’s leading run-scorer this season with 358 runs at an average of 51.14 with three half-centuries to his name.

In the bowling department, the dependency will be on left-arm quick Wahab Riaz to provide breakthroughs at regular intervals. Wahab is the franchise’s most successful bowler so far in this year’s competition with 10 wickets in 7 outings at an economy rate of 6.50. 

Mashrafe Mortaza and Mahedi Hasan have also picked up crucial breakthroughs for the side with the new-ball.

Rangpur Rangers performance in BPL 2019:

Rangpur delivered another dismal batting performance and lost their previous game to Dhaka Platoon. Chasing 146 runs, Rangpur Rangers were bundled out for 84 runs in 15.3 overs.

The side led by Shane Watson will be looking to earn a consolation win in their final round-robin game. In the batting department, the team has been heavily relying on in-form opener Mohammad Naim, who has scored 342 runs in 11 matches at an average of 34.20. However, he perished for a low score in the previous game against Dhaka Platoon.

The biggest letdown this season has been the poor form of captain Shane Watson. Watson has only scored 83 runs in 6 games and will need to lead the way with the bat if Rangpur wants to come out on top in this contest.

All-rounder Lewis Gregory has delivered credible performances with bat and ball for the side in this year’s competition. With the bat, Gregory has accumulated 216 runs in 10 innings at an average of 27.00. He has delivered decent performances with the ball in hand and claimed 14 wickets at an economy rate of 7.80.

In the bowling department, the team management will be once again depending on Mustafizur Rahman, who has claimed 19 wickets in 11 matches. Left-arm medium is currently leading wicket-taker in this year’s competition. In the previous game, Mustafizur Rahman delivered another decent performance and finished with figures of 3 for 34 in his four overs spell.

Pacer Taskin Ahmed also bowled well against Dhaka Platoon and claimed three wickets in his four overs.

Dhaka Platoon vs Rangpur Rangers: BPL 2019 Match Prediction

The 38th match of BPL 2019-20 will see Dhaka Platoon take on Rangpur Rangers on Wednesday.

Dhaka Platoon and Rangpur Rangers are hanging in the middle part with their qualification still under question. Dhaka Platoon are the best placed among the other teams to qualify and a win in any of their three matches will take them to the next round.

But, Rangpur Riders are at the cliff and they need to win both their remaining matches and hope other results go their way to qualify. Rangpur Riders play both their matches against Dhaka Platoon and this might be a straight shootout for both teams to qualify.

Dhaka Platoon performance in BPL 2019:

Dhaka Platoon have won two consecutive matches after putting 170+ scores on board. Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque gave them a 45-run opening stand against Khulna Tigers. Mominul Haque then used the platform to steer the ship before Asif Ali and Ariful Haque ensured a fitting finish with fireworks, sharing a 54-run partnership off just 21 balls. Hasan Mahmud took 4 wickets to lead their charge with the ball.

Asif Ali had made scores of 39 & 55 in the last two matches at an unbelievable strike rate of 300 & 200 respectively. He has hit 8 sixes in the last two matches and is helping the team to get those extra 15-20 runs at the end.

Mashrafe Mortaza and Thisara Perera chipped in with a wicket each and keep up their momentum. Shadab Khan was excellent with the ball bowling a good spell of 4-0-25-1 to strangle the batsmen in middle overs. Premier pacer Wahab Riaz may return to the playing XI this match.

Rangpur Rangers performance in BPL 2019:

Rangpur Rangers put a clinical performance against Sylhet Thunder to win the match. Skipper Shane Watson came up with a spirited 36-ball 68 alongside Mohammed Naim’s 42 runs in the match. 

Mohammed Naim has scores of 55, 24, & 42 in the last three matches and he helped his team to get a good score in powerplay overs. We expect him to give a rapid start in this match too. 

Cameron Delport, Mohammed Nabi, and Fazle Mahmud played some good cameos to take their team total to an impressive 199 runs. 

Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Lewis Gregory took 2 wickets each and gave easy runs for the opposition.  Mohammed Nabi and Cameron Delport chipped in a wicket each to complement their bowling attack. 

Mohammed Nabi had a good all-round match with a 17-ball 23 & a bowling spell of 4-0-27-1 to help the team. Nabi is an excellent player who can contribute equally with the bat and ball in hand in the T20 matches.
