Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 - Dhaka Platoon v Cumilla Warriors

Shahid Afridi is playing for Dhaka Platoon in this years' BPL

The 6th match of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 will be played between Dhaka Platoon and Cumilla Warriors at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.

If there was ever a statement to kick off your campaign, Cumilla Warriors made it in the opening match of the season against Rangpur Rangers. With an explosive batting order featuring the likes of Soumya Sarkar, Dawid Malan, Sabbir Rahman and Dasun Shanaka, the Warriors took full toll of the opposition bowling and posted an above-par 173-run total, with Shanaka being the top scorer.

Each of their bowlers then did the job with Al-Amin Hossain standing out with three wickets. The team went on to win the match by a massive margin of 105 runs.

Dhaka Platoon did not have the most impressive start to their BPL 2019-2020 campaign and lost their first match against Rajshahi Royals. They got off to a decent start with opener Anamul Haque scoring a 33-ball 38.

Things were looking in their control by the time wicketkeeper Jaker Ali was batting on 20 odd, but some quick wickets from Ravi Bopara in the middle meant that the team began to stutter.

Had it not been for the crucial contributions from Wahab Riaz and Mashrafe Mortaza towards the end, the team would not have even have reached 134.

Despite that, their bowling seemed ineffective apart from Mahedi Hasan, and the team lost the game by a comprehensive 9-wicket margin with 10 balls remaining.


Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Cumilla Warriors - Dawid Malan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Al-Amin Hossain, Dasun Shanaka (c), Abu Hider Rony, Yasir Ali, Sunzamul Islam, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mahidul Islam Ankon (wk)

Dhaka Platoon - Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Jaker Ali (wk), Thisara Perera, Shahid Afridi, Laurie Evans, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mahedi Hasan, Wahab Riaz, Ariful Haque, Hasan Mahmud
