Chattogram Challengers and Sylhet Strikers will lock horns in Match No. 28 of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2023 on Saturday, January 28. The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Dhaka will host the contest.
The Challengers, led by Shuvagata Hom, haven’t had the best of times of late. With four points from eight matches, they are placed at sixth in the table with a net run rate of -1.009, the second worst after the Nasir Hossain-led Dhaka Dominators.
The Challengers will go into the match after losing to Fortune Barishal by three wickets. After being put in to bat first, they posted 168 on the board after Curtis Campher’s unbeaten 45 off 25 balls. But Barishal chased down the target with four balls to spare.
The Strikers, led by Mashrafe Mortaza, have slowed down a wee bit. After winning their first five matches, they have lost two of their last three games. Also, Fortune Barishal displaced them from the top of the points table after Friday’s doubleheader.
