BPL 2019 Team Previews & Betting Odds

 

Khulna Titans Preview & Odds

Khulna Titans will be seeking their maiden BPL title this season. They have reached the playoffs three times out of four but have never made an appearance in the final. 2016 has been the most successful season for the team where they finished third. Last year, the Titans came third at the end of the league stage with seven wins and four defeats from twelve matches. Their campaign came to an end as they were knocked out in the Eliminator by Rangpur Riders. Brendan Taylor, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Dawid Malan and Mahmudullah who scored the most runs (312 runs) for the Titans last year will be their key batsmen while Taijul Islam, Yasir Shah, Carlos Brathwaite and Lasith Malinga will be the main threats with the ball.

Khulna Titans Betting Odds

Khulna Titans are being offered at odds of 7.50 on Betway, 9 on Bet365 and 5.40 on Betfair to win the Bangladesh Premier League 2019.

Khulna Titans Squad

Mahmudullah (c), Ariful Haque, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Carlos Brathwaite, Dawid Malan, Jahurul Islam, Shariful Islam, Taijul Islam, Al-Amin, Zahir Khan, Sherfane Rutherford, Subashis Roy, Junaid Siddique, Mahidul Islam Ankon, Tanvir Islam, Lasith Malinga, Yasir Shah, Brendan Taylor, Paul Stirling

Rangpur Riders Preview & Odds

Rangpur Riders won their first-ever BPL title last time. After finishing fourth in the standings at the end of the league round with six wins and as many losses, they beat Khulna Titans and Comilla Victorians in the Eliminator and the second qualifier respectively before thrashing Dhaka Dynamites by 57 runs in the final. This year, the Riders will bank on their heavy-hitters Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rilee Rossouw to score runs for them. Mashrafe Mortaza, who was their best bowler last time, along with Benny Howell and Nazmul Islam will be the ones to watch out for with the ball.

Rangpur Riders Betting Odds

Rangpur Riders are favorites to win this sixth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League at odds of 4.50 on Betway, 4.33 on Bet365 and 3.70 on Betfair.

Rangpur Riders Squad

Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Nazmul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Chris Gayle, Alex Hales, AB de Villiers, Shafiul Islam, Sohag Gazi, Farhad Reza, Mehedi Maruf, Ravi Bopara, Rilee Rossouw, Nahidul Islam, Nadif Chowdhury, Abul Hasan, Benny Howell, Oshane Thomas

Rajshahi Kings Preview & Odds

Rajshahi Kings have made it to the playoffs in each of their first three BPL seasons and they even came runners-up in 2016. The previous edition was not a memorable one for them as they finished sixth in the league standings with four wins and eight defeats from twelve matches. They will be looking to start off well this time unlike last year when they lost three of their first four matches. Mohammad Hafeez, Mominul Haque, Soumya Sarkar and Christiaan Jonker will be the key batsmen for the Kings this year while Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan and Seekkuge Prasanna will be their main weapons in terms of bowling.

Rajshahi Kings Betting Odds

Rajshahi Kings are heavy underdogs amongst the bookmakers for the BPL 2019 and they are being offered at a very high price of 10 on Betway, 11 on Bet365 and 7 on Betfair.

Rajshahi Kings Squad

Mominul Haque (c), Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Zakir Hasan, Qais Ahmad, Christiaan Jonker, Soumya Sarkar, Fazle Mahmud, Arafat Sunny, Alauddin Babu, Isuru Udana, Laurie Evans, Marshall Ayub, Kamrul Islam , Ryan ten Doeschate, Seekkuge Prasanna, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Hafeez

Dhaka Dynamites Preview & Odds

With three title wins and a runners-up trophy in the bag, Dhaka Dynamites are the most successful team of the Bangladesh Premier League. They won the first two editions of the tournament in 2012 and 2013 and have never failed to qualify for the playoffs. Last year, the Dynamites finished second on the points table with seven wins and four losses. They won their final two league games before crushing Comilla Victorians in the qualifier. However, they could not beat Rangpur Riders in the final. Shakib Al Hasan, the tournament's best bowler last season, will be the x-factor for the Dynamites. Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine are the other key figures in the team.

Dhaka Dynamites Betting Odds

Dhaka Dynamites are being offered at odds of 5 on Betway, 4.50 on Bet365 and 4 on Betfair to win the Bangladesh Premier League 2019.

Dhaka Dynamites Squad

Shakib Al Hasan (c), Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Hazratullah Zazai, Andre Russell, Rubel Hossain, Nurul Hasan, Rony Talukdar, Shuvagata Hom, Andrew Birch, Ian Bell, Qazi Onik, Mohammad Asif Hasan, Naim Sheikh

Sylhet Sixers Preview & Odds

Sylhet Sixers have reached the playoffs just once in their four appearances in the BPL. They finished fifth last year after winning four and losing seven out of their twelve league encounters. They began their campaign with wins in their first three matches but ran out of gas thereafter, losing their next six completed matches on the bounce. Their last league game came against Comilla Victorians which they ended up losing by 25 runs. The Sixers will rely on David Warner, Andre Fletcher, Liton Das and Nicholas Pooran to score runs this year. Mohammad Irfan, Sohail Tanvir, Sandeep Lamichhane and Taskin Ahmed form a potent bowling attack.

Sylhet Sixers Betting Odds

While Betway has Sylhet Sixers at 5.50, Bet365 and Betfair have them up at 6 and 4 respectively to win the Bangladesh Premier League 2019.

Sylhet Sixers Squad

David Warner (c), Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Liton Das, Sohail Tanvir, Sandeep Lamichhane, Afif Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Al-Amin Hossain, Towhid Hridoy, Fabian Allen, Mohammad Irfan, Nabil Samad, Ebadat Hossain, Alok Kapali, Jaker Ali, Gulbadin Naib, Andre Fletcher, Mehedi Hasan Rana, Patrick Brown, Nicholas Pooran

Comilla Victorians Preview & Odds

Comilla Victorians have had two impressive showings in their three appearances in the Bangladesh Premier League. In their very first BPL season in 2015, they defeated the now defunct team Barisal Bulls in the final to be crowned champions. The following year, however, brought huge disappointment for them as they finished second from bottom in the league standings but came back strongly last term to progress through to the playoffs. The Victorians topped the points table in the previous season with nine wins and three losses. But their campaign came to an end with back-to-back defeats in the qualifiers. This season, the team will be counting on Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Evin Lewis and Shoaib Malik to score heavily for them while their bowling will depend mainly on Thisara Perera, Shahid Afridi and Abu Hider.

Comilla Victorians Betting Odds

Comilla Victorians are being offered at odds of 4.50 on Betfair and 5.50 on both Betway and Bet365 to win this season of Bangladesh Premier League.

Comilla Victorians Squad

Tamim Iqbal (c), Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Saifuddin, Shoaib Malik, Asela Gunaratne, Liam Dawson, Abu Hider Rony, Anamul Haque, Ziaur Rahman, Shahid Afridi, Thisara Perera, Mosharraf Hossain, Mohammad Shahid, Shamsur Rahman, Sanjit Saha, Evin Lewis, Waqar Salamkheil, Aamer Yamin

Chittagong Vikings Preview & Odds

Chittagong Vikings have reached the playoffs just two times in the past five BPL seasons. Their best performance came in the 2012–13 season when they finished runners-up. In 2016, they finished third on the points table at the end of the league round but lost to Rajshahi Kings in the Eliminator. Last season, the Vikings lost eight of their twelve league matches to end up at the bottom of the standings. They won just one of their first six matches and just could not recover after that poor start. Luke Ronchi, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Shahzad and Cameron Delport will be the key men for Chittagong this year in terms of batting while Dasun Shanaka, Abu Jayed, Sikandar Raza and Mosaddek Hossain will be the team's biggest hopes with the ball.

Chittagong Vikings Betting Odds

Chittagong Vikings are currently fixed at 6.50 on Betway, 8 on Bet365 and 5 on Betfair to win the Bangladesh Premier League 2019.

Chittagong Vikings Squad

Mushfiqur Rahim (c), Sunzamul Islam, Sikandar Raza, Luke Ronchi, Mohammad Shahzad, Robbie Frylinck, Mosaddek Hossain, Abu Jayed, Khaled Ahmed, Nayeem Hasan, Cameron Delport, Dasun Shanaka, Mohammad Ashraful, Robiul Haque, Yasir Ali, Nihaduzzaman, Najibullah Zadran, Shadman Islam

Our Prediction: Who Will Win BPL 2019?

Chittagong Vikings, barring the 2013 season when they came runners-up, have a rather poor record in the Bangladesh Premier League. Comilla Victorians did well last time but their bowling looks thin on paper and they are likely to struggle with such a weak attack. Rajshahi Kings don't have too many world-class players in their side and we don't expect them to finish in the top four at the end of the league stage.

Sylhet Sixers, Khulna Titans, Dhaka Dynamites and reigning champions Rangpur Riders are the ones who we feel will reach the playoffs this season. The Dynamites have always performed well and have the strongest record in the tournament. They were impressive last time as well and with quality all-rounders like Shakib Al Hasan, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell in their ranks, we feel they have enough firepower in the tank to go all the way and win their fourth BPL title.

Final Verdict: Back Dhaka Dynamites to win the Bangladesh Premier League 2019 at 1.70 with Betway and 1.72 with Bet365.
