Chattogram Challengers vs Fortune Barishal BPL 2022 match prediction and cricket betting recommendations. On the 21st of January 2022, the match will be held in the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
On the surface, the Chattogram Challengers appear to have put together a strong team. They have Kennar Lewis and Chadwick Walton in their roster as two potentially devastating opening batters, Bangladeshi hitters Sabbir Rahman and Afif Hossain, and Will Jacks as another damaging overseas batsman who can bat from a variety of positions.
Batting is traditionally the more challenging aspect of the game for BPL teams, and the Chattogram Challengers appear to have excelled at it.
Nasum Ahmed, Enamul Haque Jr, and Shoriful Islam, three excellent Bangladeshi bowlers, lead their bowling attack. If Shoriful Islam is properly treated, we believe he has the potential to be just as good as Mustafizur Rahman.
In the BPL, Mehidy Hasan is a true all-rounder who might assist balance the team alongside Riyad Emrit or Benny Howell.
The key will be to deploy the players in the right spots so that they can have the greatest impact.
Fortune Barishal boasts some of the biggest names in T20 cricket in their roster, but the question of their utility at this stage of their careers must be considered. Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo will go down as two of the greatest T20 players of all time, but are they still worth a franchise’s investment? We don’t believe they’re as consistent or as influential as some of the younger players.
Shakib Al Hasan is on the roster, which is always a plus. He contributes as a legitimate batter or a front-line bowler and is as good as having two players in the lineup. His background also aids in propelling the entire team ahead. The stocks appear to be a little thin in comparison to the rest of the batting order. They’ll be hoping that local players like Nurul Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shantocan step up, or else things could become a little tricky.
Obed McCoy and Alzarri Joseph are on the squad, and if they are eligible for selection, they should help round out the team with some world-class talent. Fortune Barishal has a powerful bowling assault thanks to Dwayne Bravo’s inclusion.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
For this match, the weather forecast is excellent. There is no rain in the forecast, and the temperatures should be pleasant. When it comes to BPL matches, the pitch is usually a talking point. We frequently see matches in which the batsmen are forced to struggle because the surfaces are slow or favour the spinners. At the start of the BPL, the surface should be favourable for batsmen.
We believe the BPL 2022 season will begin with a relatively high-scoring match.
CGC VS FBL BETTING TIPS
The Chattogram Challengers will be our pick to win. We just believe they have chosen a more well-balanced roster that will allow them to field a more effective eleven. Fortune Brishal has some huge names, but we believe they are weak in depth, and their reliance on past stars could be a major issue.
The Chattogram Challengers are the favourites to win.
