The pole position of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 points table will be at stake when the number one team Chattogram Challengers locks horns with the third-placed Rajshahi Royals. Although the Royals have lesser points than the Challengers, they have a superior net run rate and have a golden opportunity to take the top spot.
Both the teams had clashed recently where the Challengers defeated Royals by 7 wickets. Imrul Kayes had won the Man of the Match award for his whirlwind knock of 67 runs in the second innings. Lendl Simmons too played a fantastic innings of 51 runs at the top. Besides, Chris Gayle's addition has made a huge difference to Chattogram's side.
Rajshahi Royals will expect their captain Andre Russell to lead the side from the front. The Caribbean star had scored 20 runs off just 10 balls. The Royals' fans will hope that the explosive all-rounder plays a big innings against the Challengers. Also, he will have to perform better as a captain as it seems like Russell does not have a clear idea about how to his bowlers.
The Royals batsmen will have to stay wary of Rubel Hossain and Ziaur Rahman who had scalped 6 wickets between themselves during the previous meeting between the two sides.
Here's a look at all the telecast details of this match.
