Live: Chittagong Vikings to bat first in BPL 2019 Eliminator
In the eliminator match of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2019 between Chittagong Vikings and Dhaka Dynamites, Chittagong Vikings have won the toss and opted to bat first.
Shakib Al Hasan has just said they would have bat first as well had they won the toss today because of the dry texture of the wicket.
However Dhaka Dynamites have made one change today replacing Minhazul with Shuvagata Hom.
In the Chittagong Vikings playing eleven, there are two changes as well. Former Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful who stepped into major cricketing shows after passing the banned phase with the ongoing BPL, has not been taken for field action today along with Sikandar Raza.
The knock out stages of the sixth season of BPL has officially been projected with two of the most vividly performed teams of the year are encountering each other.
As resting at the bottom teams of top fours in the table, either Dynamites or Vikings would have to bid adieu today at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Shakib Al Hasan’s men edged passed Rajshahi Kings in their last group match to enter into the play offs on contrary to Mushfiqur Rahim’s Chittagong Vikings who were well settled among the bests in the league.
