We have already witnessed some exceptional matches in the 7th edition of the Bangladesh Premier League and could be in for something special later today. The 10th match of the competition will be played between Chattogram Challengers and Sylhet Thunder. While Chattogram is stationed in the 3rd position in the points table with two wins from 3 encounters, Sylhet is yet to win a match in this competition and lost all their 3 matches in Dhaka.
The Chattogram Challengers have already defeated them in the tournament and will be starting as the favourites for the all-important clash. It is a tough situation for Sylhet Thunder. They need to start winning from now if they harbour hopes of going through to the next four. Chattogram, on the other hand, will look to get their campaign back on track after losing to Khulna Tigers.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
It will be the 2nd match in this stadium and nothing much can be expected from this surface. However, if you consider international matches, the surface here has been batting friendly and the bowlers haven’t quite enjoyed bowling here. However, in BPL it might be a different case and we might witness a slower pitch. The team winning the toss should be bowling first which has been the tradition in the shortest format of the game.

CCH vs SYL Dream 11 Wicket-keepers
Chadwick Walton will be our first pick in our dream XI team. He is a clean striker of the ball and can hit the big shots on a consistent basis. Walton looked in great touch in the previous clash against Rangpur scoring his first fifty of the tournament.
The next pick in this category will be Mohammad Mithun. He is an impressive young batsman who started of the tournament with a brilliant 84 against Chattogram Challengers. He will have happy memories from that match and will surely look to make an impact in a must-win game for them.
Andre Fletcher will be the 3rd player in this segment. It is not often when we pick three wicket-keepers but in this case, all the 3 options are top-order batsman, a good striker of the ball and have been in a good rhythm.
CCH vs SYL Dream 11 Batsmen
Johnson Charles will be our first pick in this category. He is also a clean striker of the ball and can turn the match on its head with his exceptional strokeplay. Charles has looked in good touch in the tournament so far but is due for a big one.
Avishka Fernando and Imrul Kayes will be our next two players from this category. The Sri Lankan youngster has announced his arrival in international cricket in the 2019 World Cup and impressed one and all. He has chipped in with useful knocks of 37 and 33 in the tournament so far.
Imrul Kayes has also done a great job in the competition so far. The southpaw began the tournament with a good knock of 61. After a failure in the 2nd match, Kayes got back to form with a well crafted 44 against the Rangpur Rangers.
CCH vs SYL Dream 11 All-rounders
Mahmudullah will be the first pick in the all-rounder’s category. Given his experience at the highest level, a player of his stature shouldn’t be left out of your dream XI team. He is a clean striker of the ball and can also chip in with some important overs in the middle.
Nayeem Hasan will be our next pick. He is an impressive young player and has bowled pretty well in the competition so far.
CCH vs SYL Dream 11 Bowlers
Rubel Hossain will be our first pick in the bowler’s category. He is an impressive bowler and had spearheaded Bangladesh in the 2015 World Cup. He started off the tournament with a couple of wickets and has looked in a good rhythm. He could be a sensible pick in your dream XI team.
Kesrick Williams will be our 2nd pick in this category. The medium-pacer has been an exceptional T20 bowler and has already made a mark in the tournament. He bagged a couple of crucial wickets against the Rangpur Rangers in the previous clash.
Delwar Hossain will be the last pick in our dream XI team. He has been a veteran in the domestic circuit and has been around the radar for quite some time. Delwar bagged a solitary wicket in the previous clash against Dhaka Platoon and chipped in with a knock of 17.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Chadwick Walton will be the captain for the day while Mahmudullah will be the vice-captain.
