CV vs RNR Dream11 Prediction

Bangladesh Premier League, 2019 | Chittagong Vikings vs Rangpur Riders, 1st Match | CV vs RNR Who Will Win

The sixth edition of Bangladesh’s elusive T20 competition the Bangladesh Premier League will take the center stage from January 05 with the first match between Comilla Victorians and the reigning champions Rangpur Riders followed by Dhaka Dynamites and Rajshahi Kings in the evening.

Chittagong Vikings

Led by Mushfiqur Rahim, the Vikings are one of the sides who have been eluded with the coveted title. Their best performance came in the 2016 season where they ended up on the fourth position on the points table.

One of the biggest inclusion in this squad is of the former Bangladesh skipper Mohammad Ashraful who is making a comeback after serving a 5-year match-fixing ban which was imposed on him in the first edition of BPL

He would be one of the talking points of this season and his team would definitely bank on his performance this year.

Rangpur Riders

The Riders are one of the veterans of BPL as they have played as many as 51 matches in this tournament since the second edition. They are the defending champions and they would love to kick-off their title defence with a bang.

Led by Bangladesh’s ODI skipper Mashrafe Mortaza, this team has all the firepower needed to defend their title. Marquee players like Chris Gayle, Alex Hales, Ab de Villiers and Rilee Rossouw would be the players on whom their campaign will heavily rely.
