SYL vs CUW Dream11 Prediction : Sylhet Thunder vs Cumilla Warriors Match Report, Probable Playing 11, Top Players and Best Dream 11 Team.
We are slowly approaching the business end of the Bangladesh Premier League and in the process we have witnessed some exciting clashes which has gone down to the wire. As we approach the 30th game of the tournament, it will be Sylhet Thunder who will lock horns against Cumilla Warriors. Both teams will look to start winning consistently especially given the fact that both teams haven’t won enough matches in the tournament so far.
It has been a disappointing tournament for the Sylhet Thunder as they find themselves on the verge of getting eliminated from the competition. They have won just a solitary game so far and need to win all their remaining 4 games and hope that other results go their way in order to progress through to the next 4. However, it is highly unlikely.
Cumilla Warriors, on the other hand, has played well in patches and is currently occupying the 5th position in the points table win 3 wins from 8 outings. Their position is a bit better than Sylhet. However, they also need to win the majority of their remaining matches to go through to the next stage and fight it out for the title.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The tournament now moves to Sylhet where the home team will play their next 3 matches. Traditionally the surface at Sylhet has produced batting paradises. In the past, most of the teams have put up big scores here.
Barring an exception when a team was skittled out for 68 after batting first, the Sylhet International Stadium has produced some high scoring matches. The bowlers have had a tough time here. The team winning the toss should be tempted to field especially given the fact that the pitch tends to remain the same for the whole length of the match.

SYL vs CUW Dream11 Wicket-keepers
Mohammad Mithun and Andre Fletcher will be the two wicket-keepers in our dream XI team. Both these players have been very consistent in the tournament so far. Mithun scored a brilliant unbeaten 2 in the previous clash while Fletcher smashed a sensational century in Sylhet Thunders only win o the tournament. Given their form and impact in the tournament so far, both of them could be sensible picks in your dream XI team.
SYL vs CUW Dream11 Batsmen
Johnson Charles and Sherfane Rutherford are the first two picks in the batsmen category. Charles has been a consistent run-scorer and has chipped in with many important knocks. On the other hand, Sherfane Rutherford is also a powerful striker of the ball. He is due for a big score but has looked good in brief stays he had in the tournament so far.
Stiaan Van Zyl and Sabbir Rahman will be the next two picks in this segment. Van Zyl is an impressive young batsman who hasn’t got enough opportunities in the tournament so far. Today might bust be the day when he plays that elusive big knock. Sabbir Rahman is also a lusty striker of the ball and can turn out to be the X factor especially in the lower middle order.
SYL vs CUW Dream11 All-rounders
Soumya Sarkar and David Weise will be our two all-rounders of the day. Sarkar is an ideal player for his team given his all-round abilities. The southpaw is a top-order batsman who can hit the ball a long way and can also chip in with some important overs with his medium pace. David Weise is a bowling all-rounder who has similar traits as Soumya. Weise is a good death overs bowler and can strike the ball a long way in the lower middle-order batsman. He can also be used as a floater.
SYL vs CUW Dream11 Bowlers
Mujeeb-ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq and Monir Hossain will be our three bowlers of the dream XI team. Mujeeb has been a find for Afghanistan and has been bagging wickets on a consistent basis in the tournament so far. He has bagged 9 wickets in the tournament so far and has been pretty economical.
Naveen-ul-Haq has looked in good rhythm and bagged two important wickets in the previous encounter. Monir Hossain is a relatively unknown name in this circuit but the youngster bagged two crucial wickets in his penultimate game against Khulna Tigers.
Captain and Vice-captain
Andre Fletcher will be our captain of the day while Mohammad Mithun will be the vice-captain.
