When and where:
Chittagong Vikings will take on Rangpur Riders in the BPL, on (January 25) at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, Bangladesh.
The Vikings are the league leaders of the tournament so far. They have played seven games and have won six already. The team has played spectacular cricket and has won five in a row. Their captain and batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has been in sensational form, and he is leading the franchise by an example. They have all the likings of being the winners of the tournament, and if all goes well, they will be seeing themselves as the champions.
On the other hand, Rangpur Riders are not going to be letting go of their throne being the defending champions. The franchise has come alive off late, and it has been the batting department that caused some serious fireworks. With the likes of Chris Gayle, Alex Hales and AB de Villiers in the lineup, no target is safe. The only thing they have to do is make sure their bowling is good enough to restrict the opposition.
The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
