CGC VS KAS TEAM PREVIEWS
The Chattogram Challengers played very well in their previous match against Minster Dhaka. Will Jacks batted very well to top score with 41 and there were some solid performances from Sabbir Rahman, Benn Howell, and Mehidy Hasan as well. Kennar Lewis has still not got going and the Challengers will be hoping that changes soon. Lewis is capable of absolutely destroying bowling attacks and can clear the boundary multiple times with ease.The batting lineup is not the strongest but the previous match showed that it has potential.
Among the bowlers, Shoriful Islam was magnificent and ended with four wickets. Nasum Ahmed also picked up three wickets while Benn Howell was difficult to score off. We like the balance of the Chattogram Challengers and think their team is going to be tough to beat in most matches that it plays.
The Khulna Tigers chased down 183 with quite a bit of ease in the previous match. Andre Fletcher and Rony Talukdar made the most runs for the team while Thisara Perera chipped in with an important cameo down the order. Mahedi Hasan is also one of the designated power-hitters of the Bangladesh team and can float up or down the order as needed.
The batting lineup for the Khulna Tigers seems to be pretty strong with Mushfiqur Rahim in the lineup as well but we are still not convinced about the consistency that this lineup is going to perform with.
Naveen ul Haq and Mahedi Hasan are the two bowlers that are going to have to take the most responsibility for the Khulna Tigers. We think Mahedi Hasan is going to open the batting in most matches while Naveen ul Haq is going to bowl the bulk of his overs at the end of the inning.
The Khulna Tigers have a strong squad to pick from and have started well. They are going to be quite confident of picking up their second win of BPL 2022.

The pitch in Dhaka has been far better for batting under floodlights. Defending scores haven’t been easy due to dew. Bowlers could have a tough day in the office. Batting second should be the way forward for the team winning the toss.
The conditions could be cloudy, but there is little chance of rain. The temperature should be around the 19-degree Celsius mark. The humidity could be in the high-80s. A fair amount of dew should be there as well.

TOP PICKS – KHULNA TIGERS
Rony Talukdar deserves applause for his innings of 61 runs in the run-chase against Minister Group Dhaka, for which he rightfully earned the player of the match award.
Andre Fletcher batted at a strike rate of 195.65 in the last match against Minister Group Dhaka. He provided a brisk start and ended his inning after a well-made 45 runs from 23 balls.
The Challengers have looked fairly clinical so far, although they lost to Barishal in their first game. Their bowlers have been amongst the wickets in the tournament. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Challengers register their second win of the competition at the expense of the Tigers.
