Explosive Dynamites remain at top
Bangladesh Premier League- BPL 2019 edition has already gifted us some exciting matches at the end of opening six matches. So far in the play of first phase it is the host Dhaka Dynamites who are leading the points table.
Defending champions Rangpur Riders is the other team who are in comfortable zone in the table with back to back wins in the tournament. They have defeated Comilla Victorians by nine wickets on Tuesday to join Shakib Al Hasan’s Dhaka Dynamites at top two of the chart.
Mashrafe Bin Mortaz’s side too has four points same as the Capital city team currently. But are at second position due to the poor Net Run Rate so far compared to Shakib Al Hasan’s Dhaka Dynamites, who have won both the matches very convincingly they have played.
Whereas the port city team Chittagong Vikings are at number three due to their hundred percent winning ration with two points, winning their very first match of this season. On the hand, Comilla Victorians who are known as one of the favorites for the season have tasted huge defeat today against Rangpur Riders. The loss has earned them demotion in the table to number four with two points. Chittagong despite having the same point are ahead due to better Net Run Rate.
The other three teams: Sylhet Sixers, Khulna Titans and Rajshahi Kings are yet to earn their first point in the campaign. And are at Fifth, Sixth and Seventh position respectively. Among them both Sylhet Sixers and Rajshahi Kings have played only a match, but Mahmudullah Riyad’s Khulna have not opened their account despite playing two matches already.
