Chattogram Challengers vs Dhaka Platoon, Eliminator

Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
Looking at the last two matches that happened at this venue, the captain winning the toss would look to bat second. Although there will be the pressure of a playoff match, the skippers might be tempted to bowl first because the wicket will assist the batsmen in the second innings.
Fantasy Tips and suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Anamul Haque will be the top pick among the wicket-keepers because he has the potential to score points in the batting department as well. Chadwick Walton will be the second choice in the wicket-keepers' section.
Batsmen: Imrul Kayes has been one of the most consistent batsmen in BPL 2019-20. He is the reason why Chattogram played so well in the league stage and he will be the player to watch out for in the Eliminator. The duo of Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque had done the same job for Dhaka Platoon hence, they will be the most popular picks. For the fourth batsman's slot, the fantasy team owners can opt for either Chris Gayle or Junaid Siddique.
All-rounders: Mahedi Hasan is the prime pick in the all-rounders after his 68-run knock against Khulna Tigers. Chattogram's skipper Mahmudullah has not impressed much in BPL 2019-20 hence, Thisara Perera would be a better option for the fantasy team.
Bowlers: Mehedi Hasan Rana has surprised everyone with his dazzling performances in the Bangladesh Premier League. The left-arm fast bowler has the highest points scoring potential in the upcoming match. Shadab Khan can pick a wicket or two with his leg-spin whereas Rubel Hossain and Mashrafe Mortaza can make an impact with their pace. Nasum Ahmed will be the wildcard pick among the bowlers.
Captain: All-rounder Mahedi Hasan is the leading candidate for the captain's role having impressed everyone with his all-round skills in the league stage. Imrul Kayes can also be a decent pick for captaincy while for the vice captain's role, Mehedi Hasan Rana and Tamim Iqbal are two viable options.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Tamim Iqbal, Mominul Haque, Chris Gayle, Mahedi Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan Rana, Rubel Hossain, Shadab Khan, Nasum Ahmed Captain: Mahedi Hasan, Vice-Captain: Imrul Kayes
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Chadwick Walton, Tamim Iqbal, Asif Ali, Junaid Siddique, Thisara Perera, Mahmudullah, Ziaur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan Rana, Mashrafe Mortaza, Hasan Mahmud, Faheem Ashraf Captain: Imrul Kayes, Vice-Captain: Mehedi Hasan Rana
