Default BPL5 Final: DD vs RR | Dec 12, 6PM BD Time

Big-hitting foreigners hold the key in BPL final
Quote:
The chances of the BPL final being a one-sided affair are fairly high. If even one of Dhaka Dynamites' departments - either the top-order batsmen or the spin bowlers - fire full throttle, then Rangpur Riders will struggle in the finale. At the same time, if Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum or Johnson Charles repeat what they did earlier in the playoffs, Dhaka could very well be out of the contest quite early.

Evin Lewis, Joe Denly, Shahid Afridi and Sunil Narine have struck 56 sixes among them, and have batted at a strike-rate of 144.61. Every time they have fired with the bat, Dhaka have cruised to victory. Afridi and Narine also form part of Dhaka's three-man spin attack including the captain Shakib Al Hasan, and the trio has been relentless through the season.

Gayle, Charles and McCullum have come late to the party, but they have peaked at the right time for Rangpur. Gayle and Charles have both scored hundreds in the qualifiers while McCullum hammered nine sixes in his whirlwind 78 in the second of those matches. Gayle has a bit of an ankle injury concern but according to Mashrafe Mortaza, it is nothing he can't shake off.

Pitch and conditions


The Mirpur pitches have been mostly under covers due to the steady drizzle of the last few days. There has been some improvement in the bounce of the pitches, according to some players. Rain is likely to stay away on the evening of the final.

Quotes

"We have a good bowling attack, and apart from the three spinners, [Abu Hider] Rony and Mosaddek [Hossain] has also bowled well this season. Our batting too has found consistency now. I think we have the overall consistency and momentum, and we will try to win the final."
Dhaka captain Shakib Al Hasan on how his spin attack is shaping up

"Among the four teams in the playoffs, we were the least favourite."
Mashrafe Mortaza, the Rangpur Riders captain, about their progress into the final

Surely no other tournament has been dominated by foreigners to this extent.

Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken.

This kind of rape will be normal if Shakib is captain. Made his figures look handsome by giving Khaled Ahmed the ball in the death.

Can't wait for the Shakib army to come defend his actions.

Only a moron like Sujon will bring in a novice (Khaled) for a tournament final.

Shakib is also at fault, why did he let him bowl the penultimate over, when he had 2 overs left.

Poor management, cannot believe this guy is going to be our test captain. This is why Tamim Iqbal would of been a greater choice.

BCB should beg Mash to return as the captain for the T20I team.

Against this batting lineup it was retarded to leave out Amir. Amir would have taken out Gayle in his first spell

DD could not find a decent local batsman to replace Maruf, yet they made it to final because of their foreign recruits - this is why people make fun of standard of BPL

Shakib lost the match by dropping Gayle, Mash will win it by taking Lewis!
