Phase 4 of Bangabandhu BPL kicks off on the second day of New Year 2020 in Sylhet. The first match of the fourth phase will see Rangpur Rangers take on Rajshahi Royals at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
Rajshahi Royals are currently ranked fourth in the league table with 10 points and are in a position to grab the top spot if they win the game against Rangpur Rangers. They have lost back to back two games and will be looking to get back on the winning track in the next match.
Rangpur Rangers have struggled so far in BPL 2019-20 and have won just three games in their eight outings. They need to buck up and have to win the majority of the games left in their pouch if they want to remain in contention to qualify for the play-offs. However, after the inclusion of Shane Watson in the team, their batting line-up now looks quite strong and will look to reap some good results in the next game.
Rajshahi Royals: Liton Das(w), Afif Hossain, Alok Kapali, Shoaib Malik, Ravi Bopara, Kamrul Islam, Andre Russell(c), Farhad Reza, Taijul Islam, Nahidul Islam, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Nawaz, Abu Jayed, Irfan Sukkur, Hazratullah Zazai, Minhajul Abedin Afridi
Rangpur Rangers: Mohammad Naim, Shane Watson (c), Cameron Delport, Lewis Gregory, Mohammad Nabi, Fazle Mahmud, Al-Amin, Jahurul Islam(w), Arafat Sunny, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Nadif Chowdhury, Mohammad Shahzad, Junaid Khan, Shadman Islam, Zakir Hasan, Tom Abell, Sanjit Saha, Mukidul Islam, Rishad Hossain
