Chattogram Challengers will lock horns with Minister Group Dhaka in the 23rd match of the Bangabandhu BPL 2022 on Tuesday, February 8, at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet.
Challengers, led by Naeem Islam, haven't had much going in their favour amidst the controversy surrounding Mehidy Hasan Miraz. They have lost four matches in a row, and are fifth in the points table with a net run rate of -0.215. They're coming off a nine-wicket loss against Comilla Victorians on February 3. Another loss would make it extremely tough for them to qualify for the next round.
Meanwhile, Dhaka, captained by Mahmudullah, have found some momentum after an indifferent start. Their previous game against the Victorians couldn't take place due to rain. However, before that, they beat the Victorians by 50 runs.
After being put in to bat first, Dhaka scored 181-6 in their allotted twenty overs. Captain Mahmudullah made an unbeaten 41-ball 70 with three fours and four sixes. Dhaka then bowled their opponents out for 130 in 17.3 overs.
