Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 Qualifier 2 - Rajshahi Royals v Chattogram Challengers
The Qualifier 2 of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 will be played between Rajshahi Royals and Chattogram Challengers at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Chattogram Challengers beat Dhaka Platoon by 7 wickets in the Eliminator to make it to Qualifier 2. On the other hand, Khulna Tigers registered a comprehensive 27-run victory against Rajshahi Royals in Qualifier 1.
The Royals will now compete against the Challengers in Qualifier 2. The team winning this game will move to the finals while the losing one will be knocked out of the tournament.
Rajshahi Royals' bowlers, particularly Mohammad Irfan, did a decent job of restricting Khulna tigers to 158. In turn, they did not get off to a great start with both openers Liton Das and Afif Hossain departing cheaply.
Shoaib Malik played a good hand with a 50-ball 80 but that was about it. Without any support from any of the fellow batsmen, the team was bundled out for 131 and lost by 27 runs.
The case was different for Chattogram Challengers who had a terrific bowling outing, with Rayad Emrit, Rubel Hossain and Nasum Ahmed being among wickets.
A target of 145 was pretty chaseable on a decent Dhaka wicket and the Challengers did just that. If there were any butterflies, Chris Gayle and Ziaur Rahman made sure that they evaporated with a 42-run partnership within the first 5 overs. With 30s from Imrul Kayes and skipper Mahmudullah, the team chased down the target comfortably with more than two overs remaining.
Rajshahi Royals may have been the better team in the group stage but a victory for Chattogram Challengers in the Eliminator means that they will come into this match full of confidence.
