Both Chittagong Vikings and Dhaka Dynamites tasted success in the league stage and reached the top of the points table.

However, their form has dipped since as the Vikings finished third while the dynamites finished fourth on the leadersboard after the league stage. In both the encounters between Chittagong Vikings and Dhaka Dynamites this season, the Vikings have beaten Dhaka on the back of all-round performances from Cameron Delport.

Chittagong Vikings are still missing the services of Robbie Frylinck who has been ruled out due to injury. In a surprise move, the team gave a game to Hardus Viljoen in the last match. Mohammad Ashraful also made a comeback at the top of the order in place of Mohammad Shahzad. However, he was dismissed for a duck and Shahzad is expected to be a part of the playing XI again.


The Vikings would be banking on Mushfiqur Raheem who has scored 418 runs from 12 innings. With the ball, Abu Jayed and Khaled Ahmed are the chief wicket takers. While Khaled has 18, Ahmed has picked up 14 till now.

Upul Tharanga has replaced Hazratullah Zazai at the top of the order for Dhaka Dynamites. Sunil Narine will open the batting alongside him and has contributed 234 runs to go along with his 14 wickets. However, skipper Shakib Al Hasan has been their star with both bat and ball. Apart from picking up 12 wickets, he has also scored 275 runs.

 

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.

 

Chittagong Vikings- Mohammad Shahzad, Cameron Delport, Yasir Ali, Sikandar Raza, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mosaddek Hossain, Shadman Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Hardus Viljoen, Abu Jayed, Khaled Ahmed
