KHT vs RAN Dream11 Prediction
Note* – As Rahmanullah Gurbaz is not playing, we have replaced him with sabbir Rehman.
We have already completed 20 matches in the 7th edition of the Bangladesh Premier League and in the process, we have witnessed some thrilling contest. Coming into this back Khulna Tigers will be hoping to get back to winning ways after suffering back to back defeats. However, when they started off the tournament, the Tigers looked the invincible lot and won their first 3 games with disdain. But they are now falling off the radar after losing back to back games.
They will be praying for a turnaround and will hope to come up with the goods against a relatively below-par team Rangpur Rangers. The Rangers haven’t quite got their act going in the tournament so far and have returned with just a solitary victory so far. They finally won their first match after defeating the Chattogram Challengers in their previous encounter. For them to harbour hopes of going through to the next 4, they need to start winning on a consistent basis to give themselves an outside chance.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
After completing its leg in Chattogram, the league now returns to Dhaka which has like Chattogram been batting-friendly wickets. However, when compared to Chattogram, Dhaka was a bit difficult with some uneven bounce during the first leg of the tournament. It will be interesting to see how the pitch behaves for the 22nd clash of the tournament.

KHT vs RAN Dream11 Wicket-keepers (As Rahmanullah Gurbaz is not playing, we have replaced him with sabbir Rehman )
The two wicket-keepers in our team will be Mushfiqur Rahim and Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Mushfiqur is one of the veterans of the game and doesn’t need an introduction. He has been simply superb for the national colours and has also looked in great touch in the tournament so far. On the other hand, Gurbaz has a fine half-century under his belt in this tournament. In his last international match for Afghanistan, the youngster smashed a sensational 76.
KHT vs RAN Dream11 Batsmen
The three picks from this segment will be Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Naim, and Nazmul Hossain Shanto. Rossouw has been in superb form and has smashed 4 half-centuries in the tournament so far. Mohammad Naim has been a special talent and has been scoring runs quite consistently. The southpaw will look to carry on his good form. Nazmul Hossain Shanto is an experienced campaigner and will look to provide solidity in the middle order.
KHT vs RAN Dream11 All-rounders
The all-rounder’s segment will start off with Mohammad Nabi and Lewis Gregory. It was on the back of an impressive all-round performance from Gregory which helped the Rangers win their first match of the tournament. Nabi is a proven customer and is a very sensible pick in any dream XI team. He is a powerful striker of the ball and can also turn out to be a match-winner with the ball.
The last pick in this category will be South African Robbie Frylinck. He has been scoring consistent runs lower down the batting order and has also been chipping away with important wickets.
KHT vs RAN Dream11 Bowlers
The bowling unit will be led by Mohammad Amir followed by Shafiul Islam. You cannot afford to drop Amir from your team. He is a champion bowler and has been a wicket-taker per excellence for his national team and also for any franchises he has played so far. Shafiul Islam has been an impressive bowler. In the last match against the Rangers, he was at his best bagging 3 wickets for just 21 runs.
The last name in our dream XI team is a relatively unknown name. His name is Mukidul Islam and the 19-year-old has bagged a wicket each in the last 3 matches.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Mohammad Naim will be the captain of the day while Lewis Gregory will be the vice-captain.
