Betting Tips
  • Both teams have clashed before in the past. If we were to go by the head-to-head statistics of the earlier editions, Fortune Barishal has always had the upper hand over Challengers. Barishal has connivingly outplayed Challengers in 3 out of 4 games played between them. The two teams clashed for the first time in this year’s 2023 BPL edition, where we witnessed the fireworks of Iftikhar Ahmed who powered them to a score that was way beyond the reach of Chattogram Royals.
  • After losing their opening game in a high-scoring contest, Barishal got their act together and 5 games on the trot. Their batting featuring the likes of Iftikhar Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz has been their key strength this season. However, Chattogram Challengers are in absolute shambles. The lack of premium overseas bowling options, coupled with their ongoing batting woes are haunting Challengers big time. They will have to do a lot of catching up in comparison with other teams to stay alive in the tournament.
  • Bearing in mind the current form of both teams, a win for Fortune Barishal is highly probable.

CCH vs FBA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BPL 2023

The 26th match of the 2023 Bangladesh Premier League is expected to unfold at Sylhet International cricket stadium where Chattogram Challengers take on the almighty Fortune Barishal on January 27th at 15:00 local time.

Chattogram’s performance in this ongoing tournament is nothing short of a disaster. They have faltered badly in all departments so far and have conceded heavy defeats in their last 3 consecutive games that have tremendously dented their morale and their competitive spirit as a team. They currently find themselves languishing right at the bottom of the points table at the number 7th spot. They have so far managed to register only 2 wins in their 7 games with a dismal net run rate of – 1.090.

On the other hand, Fortune Barishal has had a very impressive outing in this year’s BPL edition. They have thoroughly dominated most of their opponents convincingly and are currently the second-highest-ranked team sitting just under Sylhet Strikers with a formidable net run rate of 0.826. In comparison with Chattogram, Fortune Barishal have an impressive record in their last 5 games with 4 wins to their name. However, they will be a little disappointed coming into this game after losing out to Sylhet Strikers by just 2 runs. Furthermore, taking into consideration the form of their premium batter Iftikhar Ahmed, Barishal has all the firepower they need to turn the tide in their favor. Read on as we preview this rather one-sided fixture.

Fortune Barishal has been in impressive form this season and is oozing confidence. Although their narrow defeat in their last game on January 24th would have marginally dented their confidence somewhat, they will still have a substantial amount of belief leading up to this fixture knowing that they have match-winners who have delivered for them in the past and will continue to do so in times to come.

Chattogram Challengers had a poor start to the season after they were restricted cheaply to 89 in their allotted 20 overs in their opening game. However, in the following game, they did manage to make a remarkable turnaround where their opening batters featuring Usman Khan and Max O’Dowd stitched a record-breaking 141-run partnership to power the Challengers to an emphatic victory. Since then, the Challengers have been struggling to repeat the heroics of the second game. Unless someone from Challengers decides to end the misery days for them, we firmly back the Fortune to thump Challengers in a predominately one-sided fashion.

CCH vs FBA Match Toss Prediction

Captains of both sides are very mindful of how the pitch plays out at the latter stage of the game. Keeping that in mind, both skippers would be looking to bat first on this track and aim to get to a competitive total.

CCH vs FBA, Sylhet International Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

On this venue, there is a stark contrast between the first and the second innings score. Figures from earlier games suggest that the team batting first are usually able to pile up the runs and put the opposition under the pump. This is a clear indication that the pitch is expected to wear off and slow down in the later half of the game playing to the advantage of the slow bowlers and the wrist spinners.

Sylhet Weather Report

The forecast for Thursday’s game indicates a clear sunny and sultry day with temperatures expected to hover around 30 C mark. However, with a higher humidity rate predicted in excess of 68%, we can expect strong heat waves during the day which will certainly take a toll on the players.

Chattogram Challengers Team News & Playing 11

CCH Team News

Following their defeat in three successive games, there may be some significant changes to their line-up ahead of this fixture. We could see some new faces in action and it is quite possible that they may bench some of their underperforming homegrown players and make room for overseas players such as Curtis Campher.

CCH Key Players

  • Usman Khan – The Pakistani-born player has showcased his raw batting talent in this ongoing 2023 BPL edition. After his blistering innings of 103* in 58 balls against Khulna, he has earned the reputation of a powerful hitter. He is amongst the leading run-getters for the Challengers and has wreaked havoc at the top of the order. Once he hits the ground running, there is no stopping him. His contribution up the order has helped his side post commendable totals. However, as we have seen so far in the tournament when he fails to fire, his team crumbles. Challengers would expect him to deliver his best performances on a more consistent basis.
  • Max O’Dowd – Just like his counterpart Usman, Max O’Dowd also has a few runs under his belt this tournament. He played a valuable part in a record 141-run opening stand against Khulna that sealed the deal for the Challengers in a scintillating fashion. He has a decent batting average of 29.25 and has demonstrated that he can stick around when the going gets tuff. However, his strike rate which is presently at 105.41 needs a significant amount of improvement.
  • Afif Hossain – We have seen a few glimpses of his batting prowess in this year’s BPL edition. Not known for his pinch-hitting abilities, Hossain enjoys the reputation of a skillful stroke player and has a canny ability to anchor his innings for his side. His innings of 69(52) against Dhaka Dominators helped Chattogram earn a handsome victory. He is currently averaging 38.2 with the bat this season and has a reasonable strike rate of 120.89. He will need to score big for his franchise on a more consistent basis which will help Chattogram gain a competitive edge.

CCH Team Form

Challengers are all over the place and have lost 3 consecutive games. Judging their current performance, hopes of a remarkable turnaround appear rather dim at this stage.

Fortune Barishal Team News & Playing 11

FBA Team News

Barisal is currently on song and their main players have been firing at the right occasions barring a few. Considering their ongoing form in this year’s BPL edition, we anticipate no major changes to their line-up at this point in time.

FBA Key Players

  • Shakib Al Hasan - Former captain of the Bangladesh national side, is in serious form in this year’s BPL edition. His spirited performances both with the bat and the ball have powered Barishal to astounding victories. The Bangladeshi veteran has a stunning batting average of 50 and has been piling up runs at a phenomenal strike rate of 200 plus. Moreover, his impressive economy rate of 5.84 RPO makes him a tricky customer with the ball allowing him to keep the batsmen in check during middle and death overs. Known for his heroics in BPL and IPL, he is surely a star player to watch out for.
  • Iftikhar Ahmed - The Pakistani batting all-rounder known for his part-time bowling abilities has taken BPL by storm. Playing in his very first BPL edition, the all-rounder raised a few eyebrows with his explosive batting style. He went ballistic against Rangpur by notching up his maiden century (100 of 45 deliveries) that totally decimated their bowling attack. His other knocks of 56(34), 57(26), and 25(18) also came in a winning cause. With such a petrifying style of batting, bowlers are bound to have sleepless nights.
  • Mehidy Hasan Miraz - The current skipper of the Bangladeshi side is not only delivering for his franchise but is also maturing as a cricketer at an international level. Just like his Bangladeshi counterpart Shakib, he is also exceptional with the bat and the ball. If the wicket has something in it for the bowlers, then he can surely exploit the conditions to his advantage and cause enormous problems for the batters. He has picked up 5 wickets at a decent economy rate of 7.65 RPO. Besides, he has contributed with the bat and played some useful cameos at several positions in the batting order. His match-winning performance of 43(29) with the bat and 2/21 with the ball hand them a convincing victory over Rangpur Riders. Bearing his batting/bowling abilities in mind, the young spin-bowling all-rounder provides a great deal of depth and stability to his side.
  • Chaturanga de Silva – The Sri Lankan all-rounder is a prize asset to his team. Known for his batting skills too, de Silva has been shining with the ball and has been inspiring the team with his consistent bowling. He is the highest wicket-taker for Barishal and has a total of 5 scalps to his name. Furthermore, with his healthy bowling average of 23.2 and an economy of 6.44 RPO, he can surely dry up the runs for the opposite team. He also has a flair for scoring some useful runs. His quickfire knock of 21(12) that featured 2 sixes was very critical which allowed Barishal to triumph over Comilla by 12 runs.

FBA Team Form

Barishal has won 5 out of 7 games and are hoping to top the table by securing a massive win.

Who will win Chattogram Challengers vs Fortune Barishal T20 Match?

It is a clash between a top-ranked team versus a bottom-ranked one. Hence, we can say with a certain degree of certainty that Challengers will have a tough outing against the mighty Fortune Barishal.

CCH vs FBA Top Team Batsmen

From Fortune Barishal’s dugout, we recommend Shakib Al Hasan, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz as our top batting picks. They are highly experienced batsmen and have massive depth in their batting and bowling abilities. Iftikhar has hit the ground running already and has played some match-winning innings including his record-breaking century against Rangpur Riders which came at a blistering strike rate of 222. Shakib too has been in phenomenal touch and is amongst the leading run scorer for his franchise. He is currently averaging 76 with the bat this season and scoring runs at a jaw-dropping strike rate of 192. Besides, Mehidy has also chipped in some useful runs here and there which have provided his team with some stability during middle overs.

Moving on to Chattogram Challengers, they too have some big names out there that are raring to have a go. Usman Khan, Afif Hosan, and Max O'Dowd are our favorite batting picks for Challengers. Unlike the other batters in the team, these batters have been scoring big on a few occasions and have been striking at a healthy strike rate. However, all eyes are on Pakistan-born Usman Khan, especially after his innings against the Khulna Tigers bowlers where he annihilated their bowling attack by smashing a swashbuckling 103 (58) to take his side to a famous 9-wicket victory.

CCH vs FBA Top Team Bowlers

From Fortune Barishal’s point of view, we recommend Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shakib Al Hasan, and Chaturanga de Silva as our top bowling picks. These bowlers have the ability to bowl tight economic spells and pick up crucial wickets that can swing the game either way. They bowl with precision and can apply the breaks on the scoring rate with their tight bowling. However, it goes without saying that both Mehidy and Shakib are equally capable with the bat too which makes them top contenders for batting picks as well. 

From Chattogram Challengers' viewpoint, we recommend that you go for Ziaur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan Rana, and Nihaduzzaman. In comparison with other bowlers in their camp, these bowlers have bowled with some penetration and have chipped in with handy wickets from time to time.

Chattogram Challengers vs Fortune Barishal Prediction

Judging the current form of the two teams and taking into consideration the statistics from their past encounters, it is obvious that Fortune Barishal are the clear favourites and an easy win for them is certainly on the cards. Furthermore, if their in-form player Iftikhar Ahmed finds his rhythm and launches himself again, Challengers' feeble bowling lineup will be found wanting in the field.
