The wicket at the Shere Bangla, in the past few matches, has tended to become relatively better for batting during the second period of play. And also since the last four BPL matches played at this ground have all been won by the side fielding first, the team that wins the toss here is likely to bowl first.

DD Team News
Dhaka Dynamites made just the one change to their playing eleven for the Eliminator against Chittagong Vikings – they dropped a misfiring Mizanur Rahman in favor of allrounder Shuvagata Hom. Rony Talukdar was promoted up the order last time and he could be sent in ahead of Shakib Al Hasan once again. Sunil Narine, after good knocks in back-to-back matches, is likely to continue to open the batting alongside Upul Tharanga. The Dynamites are coming off a convincing victory over the Vikings and so we don’t expect them to tinker with the winning combination.
DD Key Players
Shakib Al Hasan and Sunil Narine have been the absolute key for Dhaka Dynamites this BPL. They have not only made significant contributions with the bat but they have also been the major threats with the ball. Shakib is the team’s leading run-getter this season with 275 runs and he is also the tournament’s second-best bowler with 21 wickets in 13 matches. Narine has played vital cameos at the top of the order in addition to picking up 18 wickets, including the match-winning four-fer in the Eliminator. Rony Talukdar and Kieron Pollard have hit half-centuries in the reverse encounters and the team will be hoping that these two can fire on the big night. Andre Russell is another key figure in this line-up. The West Indian allrounder is having a strike-rate of close to 151 and has taken 12 wickets. Rubel Hossain has bagged 17 wickets in the season and he will be the one to watch out for among the seam bowlers.
DD Recent Form
Dhaka Dynamites finished fourth on the BPL 2019 points table with six wins and as many losses from the twelve league encounters. They were tied with Rajshahi Kings at 12 points but pipped them to qualify for the playoffs on account of a superior net run-rate. The Dynamites entered the playoffs having lost five of their last six league matches. They met Chittagong Vikings in the Eliminator and knocked them out of the tournament with a strong bowling performance.

Rangpur Riders Team News & Playing 11
RGR Team News
Rangpur Riders have lost two of their in-form batsmen in Alex Hales and AB de Villiers at this crucial stage of the tournament. Opening batsman Hales suffered a shoulder injury while batting during last week’s game against Rajshahi Kings which has ruled him out of the remainder of the BPL. de Villiers too left the team before the start of the playoffs. The Riders made three changes to their side for the first Qualifier against Comilla Victorians as they brought in Benny Howell, Sohag Gazi and Shafiul Islam to replace AB de Villiers, Shahidul Islam and Minhajul Abedin Afridi. We expect them to go unchanged for this game.
RGR Key Players
Rilee Rossouw is going through tremendous form and he is the key man for Rangpur Riders when it comes to batting. The South African opening batsman is leading the tournament’s runs charts with 558 runs which includes a hundred and five half-centuries. Chris Gayle is coming off a decent knock against Comilla Victorians and the Riders will find themselves in a strong position if this man gets going. Mohammad Mithun has batted well on occasions and the team will also be expecting a handy contribution from him. Mashrafe Mortaza has been the standout performer with the ball this BPL for the Rangpur Riders. The skipper is amongst the tournament’s leading wicket-takers with 20 wickets and the team will want him to lead from the front in this crunch game. Farhad Reza and Shafiul Islam have also been pretty impressive with 17 and 15 wickets respectively. Dhaka Dynamites will be wary of Shafiul who took a three-wicket haul against them at this ground.
RGR Recent Form
Rangpur Riders have been one of the most consistent performers in this year’s BPL. They finished the league stage as table toppers with eight wins and four losses from twelve matches. They were on fire towards the tailend of the league round, winning their last six matches in a row. However, the Riders could not extend their winning streak as they suffered an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Comilla Victorians in the first Qualifier.
Rangpur Riders Predicted Playing 11
- Chris Gayle, Mehedi Maruf, Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Ravi Bopara, Benny Howell, Nahidul Islam, Farhad Reza, Sohag Gazi, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Shafiul Islam

Dhaka Dynamites vs Rangpur Riders Prediction
Rangpur Riders are the champions of the previous edition and they have certainly played like one this year as well. They defeated Dhaka Dynamites in their most recent meeting last week at Chattogram and this should give them plenty of confidence heading into this game. However, the loss against Comilla Victorians in the first Qualifier has broken their momentum and has raised a few questions on their bowling group. The Riders will also miss the services of the in-form Alex Hales and AB de Villiers and their absence will put more pressure on the likes of Chris Gayle and Rilee Rossouw to score the runs. The Dynamites, on the other hand, have gained momentum after winning their last two matches. They are going in with a full-strength line-up and players like Shakib, Narine and Russell seem to be hitting good form. Dhaka Dynamites have reached the finals of the BPL four times in the five seasons and we expect them to win this match and make their fifth appearance in the final.
