Warriors will now Rajshahi Royals, who too have had a bit of a dip in form after starting the campaign with two back-to-back wins.
The 20th game of the 2019 Bangladesh Premier League will be played between Cumilla Warriors and Rajshahi Royals Zahur Ahmed Chowdhary Stadium in Chattogram.
The match starts at 06:00 PM IST (12:30 am GMT) (6:30 PM Local). It can be streamed live on Fancode in India.
Cumilla Warriors losing streak just got longer courtesy a five-wicket defeat at the hands of Dhaka Platoon on Monday and their campaign is increasingly threatening to lose its steam after what was a pretty good start to the tournament- two wins in the first three games. The Warriors had no answers to the all-round brilliance of Mahedi Hasan. The off-spinner played a crucial role [4-0-9-2] with the ball in restricting the Warriors to 5-160 in 20 overs despite an unbeaten whirlwind knock of 65-ball 94 by Bhanuka Rajapaksa.
But, Hasan wasn’t done yet. Coming into bat after his side had lost the crucial wicket of Anamul Haque for a second-ball duck, Hasan scored a whirlwind 29-ball 59- an innings which included just two fours but seven Brobdingnagian sixes, to spearhead what eventually turned out to be a successful run-chase for Dhaka Platoon.
The Warriors will now face Rajshahi Royals, who too have had a bit of a dip in form after starting the campaign with two back-to-back wins. Their winning streak was broken by Khulna Tigers and in particular, by Mushfiqur Rahim, who scored a 51-ball 96 to help his side overhaul the target of 190.
Another perfect day for T20 cricket is expected in Chattogram on Tuesday. According to the weather report, the temperatures are expected to be 17-24 degrees Celsius while humidity is expected to be around 60%.
With the dew playing its role in the second half, chasing has been significantly easier for the sides thus, as evident from the stats of the last five games, where four of them have been won by teams’ batting second.
Average 1st inning score: 170 [In the last five games played at the venue]
Record of chasing teams: Won- 4, Lost- 1
