CHATTOGRAM CHALLENGERS REVIEWS
Chattogram Challengers had picked a balanced side for this edition of the Bangladesh Premier League. Will they have some chances to win their maiden title of BPL? a couple of early matches will answer this question. Chadwick Walton and Kennar Lewis are part of the squad of this team and we are sure that these batters will open the batting inning for the Challengers. Afif Hossain and Sabbir Rahman are international stars who will add some extra power to the batting order of this team.
The batting order of Chattogram Challengers is strong but we don’t think that their bowling unit is also strong. Enamul Haque Jr, Shoriful Islam, and Nasum Ahmed are the three leading bowlers of this team while Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan are also available to handle the bowling unit of Chattogram Challengers.

Some best and most experienced players of the T20 format of cricket are part of the squad of Fortune Barishal. Dwayne Bravo and Chris Gayle are the main strength of this team. Both players had retired from international cricket but are available for league cricket. Shakib Al Hasan is another star who will be playing for Fortune Barishal.
Najmul Hossain Shanto and Nurul Hasan are star batters of Fortune Barishal while Alzarri Joseph and Obed McCoy are also available for the selection. Fortune Barishal is overall a well-balanced side who can give tough times to the other teams of this tournament.
