DD vs COV Match Pitch Report
The pitch of Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium is slow and helps spin bowlers. On this pitch, fast bowlers do not get any help but at the beginning of the match, the ball of fast bowlers can swing.
What to expect:
Durdanto Dhaka: Durdanto Dhaka, who were known as Dhaka Dominators last season, will be looking for a good start. Last year, they finished sixth on the points table with just three wins from 12 games.
Durdanto Dhaka Key Players
- Mohammad Naim- the 24-year-old left-hander has scored over 2150 T20 runs and he will be keen to secure an opening spot before Saim Ayub is available.
- Mosaddek Hossain- the right-handed middle-order batter has been capped 80 times by Bangladesh and he will be keen to perform well against his former side.
- Shoriful Islam- the left-arm opening bowler is widely recognized as Bangladesh’s premier pace bowler and he was in outstanding form during the national tour of New Zealand last month.
- Taskin Ahmed- the 28-year-old pace bowler was expected to have more of an impact on the international stage over the last 12 months but he will see BPL 2024 as an excellent opportunity to prove himself again.
Probable XI: Mohammad Naim, Irfan Sukkur, Saif Hassan, Mosaddek Hossain, Chaturanga de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama(w), Alauddin Babu, Lahiru Samarakoon, Taskin Ahmed(c), Shoriful Islam, Usman Qadir

Comilla Victorians: Defending champions Comilla Victorians have a power-packed squad this year too. However, the start of the competition might witness the absence of some key players, as they are committed to participating in other leagues and fulfilling international obligations. Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed are currently engaged in a T20I series against New Zealand, while Rashid Khan is still recovering from injury. Meanwhile, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine will be busy with the International League T20, which starts later this week.
Comilla Victorians Key Players
- Litton Das- the top order batter has an excellent record across all-formats at international level and has made 24 T20 half-centuries across his career.
- Johnson Charles- the vastly experienced keeper-batter is approaching 6000 T20 runs and he scored 79 not out and took the Player of the Match Award in last year’s final.
- Tanvir Islam- the left-arm spinner had a fine BPL season in 2023 where he took 17 wickets and finished the tournament as the joint-leading wicket taker.
- Matthew Forde- the 21 year old from Barbados is already developing a strong reputation on the T20 circuit. He made his international debut in ODIs and T20Is last month.
Probable XI: Johnson Charles, Litton Das(w), Imrul Kayes(c), Towhid Hridoy, Khushdil Shah, Andre Russell, Jaker Ali, Sunil Narine, Mustafizur Rahman, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Tanvir Islam

However, the Victorians have a long batting line-up and the team is not short of self-belief. We are backing Comilla Victorians to win Match 1.

DD vs COV Match Dream11 Team
Durdanto Dhaka vs Comilla Victorians Match Both Team Top Batsmen
We recommend Mohammad Naim, Mosaddek Hossain and Irfan Sukkur with the bat for Durdanto Dhaka. Left-handed opener Sukkur scores his T20 runs at a good strike-rate and he comes into this match with four half-centuries in this format. Naim last played T20I cricket for Bangladesh in August 2022 but with the 2024 T20 World Cup coming up in June, he will be keen to show what he can do.
With the bat, Litton Das, Johnson Charles and Imrul Kayes are our tips for Comilla Victorians. Only three players scored more runs than Das in last year’s BPL. He has batted in 181 T20 matches and has a strike-rate of 127.72 in the format. Left-handed Kayes can bat anywhere across the top or middle order and he has hit 13 half-centuries in T20 cricket.
Durdanto Dhaka vs Comilla Victorians Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed and Usman Qadir with the ball for Durdanto Dhaka. Pakistan international leg-spinner Qadir has taken 108 T20 wickets and he will be looking forward to getting turn and bounce from this surface in Mirpur. Ahmed bowls with good pace and he has a fine T20 record with 7x four-wicket hauls alongside his best figures of 5/31.
For Comilla Victorians, Matthew Forde, Mustafizur Rahman and Tanvir Islam are our bowling picks. Forde bowls with good pace, has best figures of 4/11 and has a very impressive strike-rate of 13.7 in T20 cricket. Left-arm pace bowler Mustafizur has played in many of the top T20 leagues, has taken 278 T20 wickets across his career and has an excellent range of slower balls in his locker.
