Bangladesh T20 League Match Prediction: Dhaka Platoon vs. Rangpur Rangers

The second-placed Dhaka Platoon will meet sixth-ranked Rangpur Rangers for a neck-to-neck tussle in the 39th match of the ongoing Bangladesh T20 League. The match is scheduled on 10 Jan at 1:30 PM in Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.  The two teams faced each other in their very previous encounter, where Dhaka Platoon registered their victory against Rangers with a mammoth margin of 61 runs. As a result, the Platoons are ahead on the ladder and have better chances of qualifying for the play-offs from here. On the other hand, it is a must-win affair for the Rangers.

With total 14 points and a net run rate (NRR) of +0.827, Dhaka Platoon has bagged seven wins out of 10 matches they have played so far. Mashrafe Mortaza and Co. have a superb batting line up consisting of Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, and Asif Ali. Their brigade of standout batters is accompanied by the likes of Mominul Haque, Mahedi Hasan and Hasan Mahmud, who have scalped a whole of lot of wickets in the recent matches.

The Shane Watson’s side has won only four out of 11 matches and therefore, the team is in desperate need of a victory to make it through the next round. The Rangers have been quite inconsistent with their performance and are expected to come out all guns blazing. Shane Watson has been shouldering the leadership mantle, but the team is way too dependent on him. To beat the damage with the bat, their squad has Mohammad Naim and Cameron Delport who can turn things around. The key players in their bowling force include Lewis Gregory and Mohammad Nabi, who are expected to bag maximum wickets at an economical rate.
