Fortune Barishal’s victory over Comilla Victorians pushed them to the top of the standings and they are now aiming to finish in the top two. For the teams at the bottom of the ladder, there is a mountain of work to be done, and they must act now.
On February 8th, 2022, the Chattagong Challengers will face off against the Minister Group Dhaka in the next round of the competition. Sylhet International Cricket Stadium will host the match. Both of these teams have a good chance of qualifying from here, and a win here could have a significant impact on that. This is going to be an exciting match.
CGC vs MGD Team Previews
Even though the Chattagong Challengers are in the bottom half of the points table, their chances of qualifying for the next round are still very good. Despite this, they are running out of time and must take action immediately.
They have two remaining matches, and they must win both of them while also increasing their net run rate. Three wins and five losses from eight matches currently put them at 3-5-2. A total of six points and a net run rate of -0.215 are all they have to show for their efforts so far. Net run rate improvement would be critical for them given their current situation.
In addition to finishing in the bottom half, they lack forward momentum. They have lost all three of their most recent games, all by large margins, and they haven’t won any of them. At this point in the season, they’ve just beaten Comilla Victorians by 17 wickets, a result that was rather disappointing.
It hasn’t helped that the Challengers’ lack of experience hasn’t been helping them in the last few matches, either. The Chattagong Challengers are a relatively inexperienced team, but they have a lot of potential. It’s time for them to get going, but bouncing back from three straight defeats is going to be a challenge for them. For the upcoming match, they’ll have to rely on individual brilliance. It will be extremely difficult to get past them if their children are able to play to their full potential.

They started the tournament with a win, but soon lost their way and were languishing in the bottom half of the points table. After that, they won back-to-back games to put themselves in a good position to advance to the next round. They have three remaining matches and must win at least one of them to keep their hopes alive.
Minister Group Dhaka are currently ranked third in the points table with three wins and three losses. Another one got cancelled due to the rain. At the end of the league stage, they will have seven points and an excellent net run rate of 0.266, which could be very useful.
Just as Minister Group Dhaka was about to build some momentum, their most recent match was called off due to inclement weather, forcing them to forfeit the match. Getting back on track will be difficult, as they will be trying to pick up where they left off.
Bangladesh have the most explosive side in the tournament on paper, and they are further bolstered by the presence of experienced players at every level of the lineup. Here, any opposition will have a difficult time dealing with the likes of Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, or Andre Russell. They could be the team to beat in the tournament based on their on-paper strength. It’s going to be difficult to beat them if they can do that on the field.
