Bangladesh Premier League (BPL 2018-19): Match 38, Sylhet Sixers vs Rajshahi Kings: Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI Updates & Fantasy Cricket Tips - January 30, 2019
In the last game of the Chattogram leg, the 38th match of a very highly competitive BPL 2019 sees Sylhet Sixers take on the Rajshahi Kings. While Sylhet are all but out of the play-off reckoning, Rajshahi need to win their final game to keep their hopes alive with Dhaka and Comilla in the reckoning.
Sylhet have been brilliant in their last two matches against Khulna and Rajshahi itself and have found form towards the end of the tournament with the team playing fearless cricket. Rajshahi should be wary of them on a flat pitch that could go either way on Wednesday.

Playing XI Updates:
After a good couple of matches against Khulna and Rajshahi, the Sixers should play the same side unless they decide to give fringe players a chance to play. Jason Roy, Liton Das and Sabbir are firing in unison and would be tough to restrict them on a batting paradise. Wickets in hand would be key for Sixers with Nicolas Pooran in good touch as well.
Possible XI: Liton(WK), Roy, Afif, Sabbir, Pooran, Kapali(C), Nawaz, Tanvir, Taskin, Samad and Ebadat.
Not many changes are expected from the Kings in their last game of the league stage. Their batting has good depth and firepower as well with the likes of Ten Doeschate and Jonker providing the impetus towards the end of the innings. Their bowling unit has been heavily dependent on Mustafizur Rahman, who has put in telling performances for them as well. More his expected of Arafat Sunny, Kamrul and captain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz with the ball.
Possible XI: Charles(WK), Sarkar, Evans, Mominul, Ten Doeschate, Jonker, Fazle, Mehidy, Kamrul, Sunny and Mustafizur.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: With only one available option, Liton Das is the obvious choice for wicket-keeper. Das has been in good form as well with a couple of fifties to his name as well making him a viable selection rather than one made without any choices.
Batsmen: Johnson Charles and Jason Roy have had a good outings for their respective teams and are useful option to have as well. Sabbir Rahman seems to be back into the runs and along with Soumya Sarkar and his medium pacers, he should be able to rake in valuable points. Nicolas Pooran is also a good option to ponder upon.
All-rounders: Mehidy Hasan and Afif Hossain have been good with vital contributions with bat and ball. Along with the two, Ryan ten Doeschate is also a great option to go for considering the fact that he is steadily being given more responsibility with the ball in addition to his finishing duties.
Bowlers: Mustafizur Rahman put in an exhibition of death bowling as he ensured that Rajshahi came away with the two points in their win against the Vikings. He is a must have in the team along with Taskin Ahmed and Mohammed Nawaz. Either of Kamrul Islam Rabbi and Arafat Sunny could also slot in to round the team off.
Captain: Jason Roy is one of the most flamboyant batsmen in world cricket. His ability to play every shot in the book gives him the confidence to succeed on a flat pitch which makes him the front-runner for captain. Other choices include Liton Das and Ryan ten Doeschate.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Liton Das(WK), Soumya Sarkar, Johnson Charles, Jason Roy, Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Afif Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Kamrul Islam and Mohammed Nawaz. Captain: Jason Roy.
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Liton Das(WK), Soumya Sarkar, Laurie Evans, Jason Roy, Nicolas Pooran, Ryan Ten Doeschate, Afif Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Arafat Sunny and Mohammed Nawaz. Captain: Ryan ten Doeschate
