DHP vs RAR Pitch report
Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium of Dhaka has always produced high-scoring encounters thanks to the good T20 wicket on offer. Expect the batsmen and spinners to be more dominant in this match.
DHP vs RAR Fantasy tips and suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Liton Das should be the preferential pick among the wicket-keepers as he has been in fantastic form. The right-handed batsman has a lot of experience of playing in Bangladesh thus, he will be a better pick than Anamul Haque.
Batsmen: Given that Shoaib Malik will bat down the order, Tamim Iqbal would be a more reliable option than him. Even Afghanistan's Hazratullah Zazai could prove to be a differential in the game while Laurie Evans can be a wildcard pick. From the local talent, Mominul Haque could be the one to pick in your team.
All-Rounders: Andre Russell will be the first choice player of many team owners but even Shahid Afridi and Thisara Perera could prove to be valuable picks. Besides, the latter two players are certain to bowl more overs than Russell hence, in case the West Indian star fails with the bat, the teams will lose out on a lot of points.
Bowlers: Mashrafe Mortaza can be a risky choice but someone like Abu Jayed who impressed in the series against India can be a match-winner for your team. Pakistan's Shadab Khan is the safest bet among the spinners.
Captain: The team owners who back Russell to fire all guns blazing should hand over the captaincy of their side to him while those not backing Russell can opt to have Tamim Iqbal or Hazratullah Zazai as their captain.
