The Tigers were completely bamboozled by Dhaka Dominators in their previous match as their batting order collapsed like a house of cards. Skipper Yasir Ali tried to build a partnership in the middle but that didn’t go per plan as the team could post only 113 runs on board after 20 overs. Speaking of the bowling unit, Mohammad Saifuddin picked up two wickets but that wasn’t enough for them to make a comeback as the team lost the match by six wickets.
When it comes to the Challengers, they were below average in their previous game. Just like the Tigers, their batting unit failed to deliver as the Shuvagata Hom-led side managed to score only 89 runs in 20 overs. Their bowing was pretty ordinary as well and thus, there’s a lot of room for the team to improve.

Since it’s an evening game, it can be a high-scoring affair. The team winning the toss will likely bowl first and anything above 175 can be considered a good score. Spinners are not going to get any help from the surface because of the cold temperature.
