Playing XI Updates:
Dhaka have won their last three matches and have found the perfect combination. Their upturn in fortunes has coincided with Sunil Narine's form with bat and ball as he has blown away opponents in the powerplay, rendering the opposition's challenge void. Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard are key to this side as well as they would look to propel the team to a large total with their big hitting prowess.
Possible XI: Tharanga, Narine, Rony, Shakib (C), Pollard, Nurul (WK), Russell, Hom, Rubel, Mahmudul and Onik.
The lackadaisical performances of the local players have been detrimental to every team's fortunes which is exactly why Comilla are the favourites. The likes of Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes and Mohammed Saifuddin have excelled along with the overseas stars to propel them to the finals. Evin Lewis has had his fair share of injury troubles but his form is exquisite and the West Indian will be the key for them again.
Possible XI: Lewis, Tamim, Anamul (WK), Shamsur, Kayes (C), Afridi, Perera, Saifuddin, Mahedi, Wahab and Sanjit.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Anamul Haque returned to form in the previous match and should be preferred over Nurul Hasan whose batting position is off-putting for many fantasy players.
Batsmen: Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes have been in good form with the former capable of destroying attacks from the get-go. Along with Upul Tharanga, both of them are must-haves in the side. Evin Lewis is also another option and could slot in for either of the two Comilla batsmen.
All-rounders: With a number of quality all-rounders on offer, Shahid Afridi, Sunil Narine and Shakib Al Hasan are the ideal set of players to have in the side. Andre Russell smashed a six-laden forty in the previous match and could be a good option as well.
Bowlers: Rubel Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin have been brilliant in the last couple of matches and are invaluable picks in the team. The likes of Shuvagata Hom, Mahedi Hasan and Sanjit Saha are also handy options to have in your fantasy teams.
Captain: Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan are the cornerstones of their respective sides and are the front-runners for captaincy. Other options include Sunil Narine and Shahid Afridi with their all-round ability known to one and all.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Anamul Haque (WK), Imrul Kayes, Tamim Iqbal, Upul Tharanga, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Shahid Afridi, Rubel Hossain, Shuvagata Hom, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mahedi Hasan. Captain: Tamim Iqbal.
