It was the match against Comilla Victorians that started the downslide of Dhaka Dynamites who were at the top of the points table then but have lost four games straight after that encounter.

Chasing a target of 154, the Dynamites fell seven runs short of the total as Comilla Victorians won on the back of tight bowling performances from Shahid Afridi and Thisara Perera. The Dynamites brought in Mizanur Rahman, Andrew Birch and Mahmudul Hasan but still lost the last match. Hazratullah Zazai, who had been given another chance after his lean patch, has been dropped.

The team has quality all-rounders in Sunil Narine, Shakib Al Hasan and Andre Russell. Dhaka has been a great hunting ground for Shakib Al Hasan as he now has 17 wickets in all and has also scored 267 runs.

Russell has come to his own in the last three matches and has picked up seven wickets along with scoring almost 100 runs. Ronnie Talukdar and Kieron Pollard have also showed sparks of brilliance.

Comilla Victorians have been boosted by the return of opener Evin Lewis who had suffered a hamstring injury. He made his presence felt by a hundred on his return. Fellow opener Tamim Iqbal has found some form and has scored two half-centuries in his last five matches.

Victorians also have two quality all-rounders in Thisara Perera and Shahid Afridi. Both of them have been making a difference in the last few matches.

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

Dhaka Dynamites- Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Rony Talukdar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mizanur Rahman,Kieron Pollard, Shuvaguta Hom, Nurul Hasan, Andrew Birch, Rubel Hossain, Shahadat Hossain
