BPL 2019/20 Match 5 – RAR vs SYL Fantasy Preview

It has been completely opposite outcomes so far for these two teams in the 2019 Bangladesh Premier League. In the opening game of BPL 2019/20, Sylhet Thunder was in action but as expected, they couldn’t get past Chattogram and ended up losing their campaign opener. On the other hand, they now play Rajshahi Royals in Match 5 and this team began with a victory.

They chased down 135 with 2 overs to spare and honestly, Royals looked like a better outfit that is capable of going to win it and making it 2 from 2 games. The game will be played at the same ground as the previous matches so far, in Dhaka. Keep reading for our PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the RAR vs SYL game…

  • Head to head in last 4 games, these teams are tied 2-2.
  • Shoaib Malik – 317 runs in 12 games at CPL 2019.
  • Sherfane Rutherford – no fifties in last 10 matches.

Rajshahi Royals

Please imagine that the Royals managed a victory in the last game even without needing much services of Andre Russell. However, he bowled 3 overs and gave away only 8 runs, so this guy is definitely among my first picks today. Next, they have the vastly experienced Ravi Bopara who has been a part of almost every T20 league in the world. In the first game, ended with figures of 1/15 in his 3 overs, and can bat too.

We’re expecting an unchanged playing eleven and Liton Das right at the top can be your wicket-keeper pick, someone who has been impressing right since CWC 2019. He scored 39(27) in the first game. Right after him is Shoaib Malik who is the most experienced player in the side. He scored a run-a-ball 36 and can play anchor as well as destroyer, and is usually handy with the ball too, though he didn’t bowl in the last game.

Sylhet Thunder

Sherfane Rutherford joins the squad and he may come straight in, in place of Nazmul Hossain. As for Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, and Mohammad Sami, they are still unavailable as they are currently at the Qatar T10 League. With 4 fifties in 24 ODIs for Bangladesh, Sylhet captain Mohammad Mithun was one to watch out for and he began the tournament well, scoring an well-paced 84*.

I’m a big fan of Mosaddek Hossain who hasn’t done anything notable in the last few months. He’s surely in my PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team, having scored 29 and picking 1/9 with the ball. For a small man, he can hit the ball a long, long way. Krishmar Santokie came under the match-fixing scanner after a few outrageous extras, so I’ll pick Ebadot Hossain as my strike bowler who has been taking plenty wickets recently.
