Chattogram Challengers will square off against Rajshahi Royals in the Qualifier 2 of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20. The match will take place on Wednesday, January 15 at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The game will commence at 6:00 PM (IST).
Chattogram Challengers are coming on the back of a win over Dhaka Platoon in the Eliminator by 7 wickets and will be riding high on confidence. They finished the league stage at the third position with 16 points to their name. They will expect big guns like Chris Gayle and Imrul Kayes to fire for them.
On the other hand, Rajshahi Royals, who finished the league stage at the second position, put up a dismal show in Qualifier 1 against Khulna Tigers. Chasing a modest target of 158, the Royals were bundled out for 131 as Mohammad Amir rattled their batting line-up. But all is not lost for the Royals as they have another opportunity to redeem themselves. They will look to rectify their mistakes and make a place for themselves in the final. Let's have a look at the squads and Dream11 prediction.
