2023 Bangladesh Premier League : Chattogram Challengers vs Khulna Tigers Match Preview

Updated: Mar 14, 2023

2023 Bangladesh Premier League - 11icBlog2

Chattogram Challengers (CCH) have had a mixed season so far in the Bangladesh Premier League. The Shuvagata Hom-led team won only two of their five games and are currently fifth in the points table. They can't afford to lose any more points right now, so they'll be hoping to get back on track against Khulna Tigers on January 20 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Khulna Tigers had a similarly poor start to the tournament. They only won one of their four games and currently sit in second place on the points table. They did, however, play some brilliant cricket in their last match against the Rangpur Riders, and if they can maintain this level of play, the Tigers have the potential to surprise all teams.

Wahab Riaz of Pakistan is in excellent form, picking up four wickets while conceding only 14 runs in four overs. With the bat, opener Tamim Iqbal once again demonstrated his class, smacking 60* off 47 deliveries to defeat the Riders. All they have to do now is take one game at a time to move up the ladder.

Returning to the home team, they struggled with the bat in their most recent match against Comilla Victorians. The skipper scored 37 runs, but a complete flop show from the middle order put Chattogram in big trouble. They could only muster 135 runs, which the Victorians easily chased down. Malinda Pushpakumara took two wickets, but the bowling unit as a whole struggled.
