40th Match: CCH vs RR



The 40th Match of the Bangladesh T20 League will be played between CCH and RR on Wednesday, 08th February 2023 at 06:00 PM IST in Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. This was the season that Chattogram wanted to forget. They have just three wins in 11 matches, including their losing streak-breaking low-score victory against Dhaka. Meanwhile, RR has tied with 14 points with COV and FBA. They are qualified for the next round, but they want to continue their momentum for the league.

Usman Khan's (294 runs in the league) have helped Hossain a lot, but these two reliable batters need more support overall. After missing the playoffs, the squad must regroup and sign better players.

The Challengers' top bowler, Nihaduzzaman, has ten wickets, showing no dangerous bowling attack to frighten rival batters. Chattogram is giving up far too many easy runs. The bowlers can't keep up with superior teams and have a lot of difficulties.

With 14 points, the Riders are level with three other clubs and two points behind the Strikers, who have 16. They will aim to continue their winning run and climb to the top of the list despite knowing they have a spot in the playoffs.

Since both batsmen are in great form right now, the Riders will again turn to their stars Rony Talukdar (289 runs) and Shoaib Malik (279) to secure the win. Talukdar recently scored 66 runs in the decisive victory against the Strikers, while Malik contributed a respectable 41.

It's encouraging to see Malik back in action after three games in which he scored only 13 runs. Mohammad Naim, a batter for the Riders, is coming up to add quality runs, which helps prevent Malik and Talukdar from doing all the scoring.

Although Rangpur's bowling attack has been solid, you'd want to see more impressive performances from their other bowlers than their top two, Hasan Mahmud (13 wickets) and Azmatullah Omarzai (12). Omarzai has been bowling much better lately; despite having a bowling average of 0/17 against the Strikers, he has taken eight wickets in his previous five outings.

Match Prediction

The Riders pose a danger since they just beat the top-ranked Strikers twice. It's obvious as day that Talukdar and Malik, who are quickly becoming one of the league's most significant batting partnerships, will be too much for Chattogram.

Without a doubt, Mahmud and Omarzai will need to be cautious while bowling to Hossain, but if they can get rid of him for 20 runs or less, the Challengers won't have a chance against the Riders or any other side that is on the rise.

We Fancy RR to win this game based on their recent performance and team strengths.
