Fortune Barishal vs Sylhet Strikers, BPL Match 4, Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket
Fortune Barishal finished last season in first place with seven wins in ten games.
Game 4 of Bangladesh Premier League 2022-23 is home to Fortune Barishal and Sylhet Strikers on Saturday night at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. This is Barishal's first game since losing narrowly in the final of last season's tournament to Comilla Victorians. Sylhet beat Chattogram Challengers by eight wickets on Friday. Read on as we preview this game. The game starts at 19:00 local time.
Fortune Barishal were two runs away from winning the tournament last year and still have a very strong squad to choose from. However, you need to be at your best to beat this Sylhet Strikers side.
The Sylhet Strikers showed that the past season doesn't count with a brilliant performance in Match 1 on Friday. They will be full of confidence before this game and everyone will be wondering if they can replicate the display.
Fortune Barishal meets Sylhet Strikers in their fourth match of Bangladesh Premier League 2023 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The Barishal finished last season in first place with seven wins in ten games. They made it to the league finals but fell by just a one-run margin against the Comilla Victorians. Shakib Al Hasan was named Player of the Tournament for his all-around performance and will continue to lead Barishal this season. Last season they had two of the biggest names in T20 cricket in Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo. Both are not part of the tournament.
The Strikers won their opening game comfortably against the Chattogram Challengers. The Challengers managed just 89 runs in 20 overs, which the Strikers chased in 12.3 overs with eight wickets in hand. The Strikers had a very disappointing game last season, winning just one game out of ten. They have a new owner and name this season, and they might finally have luck on their side, despite playing this game against a team with "Fortune" in their name.
Shere Bangla National Stadium produced a one-sided contest in the opening game of the season. The pitch has retained its reputation for being unpredictable. The average first innings result in the last five T20 games at this venue has been 144 runs.
Both teams have chosen to go first on Friday and we predict both captains will want to finish second in this game.
Clear skies with humidity above 70% in the second half of this game. The temperature will not drop below 20 degrees.
Fortune Barishal team led by Shakib Al Hasan is a more balanced side. They're a solid team and should probably win this game. The Barishal skipper is one of the top run getters in the competition with 271 runs from his last 10 meetings. He is a world-class all-rounder and has won 15 wickets in as many games. Mahmudullah has also done a fair job adding 50 runs in the last few games. We will bet with Fortune Barishal to win this encounter and open their account immediately.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI
Top Picks Dream 11 Prediction
FBA Key Players
Ibrahim Zadran the 21-year-old Afghan has a top score of 96 in T20 cricket and also brings a very strong international record in white ball cricket.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz the goaltender's batsman will likely focus on his batting in this tournament. He failed to hit 121 in this format and is an exciting prospect.
Shakib Al Hasan The 35-year-old all-rounder has played in all the top leagues in the T20 franchise around the world and captured over 400 T20 wickets. His fast spin bowling will be very difficult to get rid of on this course.
SYL key Players
Najmul Hossain Shanto After averaging just 20.88 during last year's tournament, Hossain Shanto's confidence will be high after his excellent start to this campaign.
Mohammad Amir although it was Raja who got all the attention, Amir's bowling on Friday was just as important to Sylhet. He conceded four overs, including a maiden, and took 2-7.
Rejaur Rahman Raja the 23-year-old medium-paced bowler, delivered the best T20 bowling figures of his career against Chattogram. He will enjoy bowling on the same court in this game.
