CCH vs RAR Dream11 Prediction : Chattogram Challengers vs Rajshahi Royals Match Preview, Squad Update, Top Players, and Best Dream 11 Team.
It should be a mouth-watering contest on our hands as table toppers Rajshahi Royals are slated to go head to head against Chattogram Challengers who are currently occupying the 2nd position. Both teams have won 7 out of 10 matches and it is the net run rate which gives Rajshahi Royals the edge. Both teams have played an exceptional brand of cricket which has resulted in their superior position in the points table.
Performances from both the teams have been pretty consistent. Meanwhile, it is learnt that Universe Boss Chris Gayle has joined the Challengers which will definitely boost them. He is a power hitter per excellence and will look to dominate straight away if he gets a chance later today. On the other hand, Rajshahi Royals will look to continue their two-match winning streak and stamp their authority on the numero uno position. All in all, we should be in for a classic encounter between the two top sides in the tournament.

Chadwick Walton and Liton Das will be the two wicket-keepers in our dream XI team. Walton is due for runs in the last few matches. However, he had already shown glimpses of his prowess during the start of the tournament. On the other hand, Liton Das is also a fine timer of the ball and has the ability to get his team off to a good start. He scored a stroke-filled 36 in the previous game against Sylhet Thunder.
Afif Hossain and Shoaib Malik will be the first two batsmen in our dream XI team. The youngster Afif has looked in great touch and will look to carry on his good form. Afif scored a brilliant 46 against Thunder. On the other hand, Malik has been the guiding force for his team. He has batted with grace and responsibility and today shouldn’t be any different. He can also chip in with some important overs with his off-spin.
Imrul Kayes and Chris Gayle will be the next two batsmen in our dream XI team. Kayes has looked in terrific rhythm and will look to carry on the good work. He has scored 319 in the tournament so far at an impressive average of 53. On the other hand, Chris Gayle doesn’t need an introduction. He will walk into any dream XI team especially in this format irrespective of whether he has played in the tournament before or not.
Ravi Bopara and Mohammad Nawaz will be the two all-rounders in our dream XI team. Bopara has looked in good touch with the bat but hasn’t quite managed to get substantial reward with the ball. On the other hand, Nawaz has looked good with the ball and has bagged some important wickets in the process. Given the combination of the team, Nawaz might fit into the dream XI team perfectly.
Kesrick Williams, Mohammad Irfan and Mehedi Hasan Rana will be the three bowlers in our dream XI team today. Kesrick is a good T20 bowler and has made an impact already. He has bagged 8 wickets in the last 5 matches and has been a wicket-taking option.
Mohammad Irfan has been impressive so far and has also chipped in with some important wickets. On the other hand, Mehedi Hasan Rana has been the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 17 wickets to his name so far. He has bowled with hostility and will look to carry on his rich vein of form.
