On the other hand, Comilla Victorians suffered a surprising 10-run loss to Fortune Barishal, as they failed to chase down 144 runs.

Chadwick Wilton may have saved the Chattogram Challengers in the last outing, as he raced to an unbeaten 44-ball 89 that put them in a winning position, yet, the likes of Afif Hossain, Zakir Hasan and Shamim Hossain have to take the scoring responsibilities onto themselves. Kennar Lewis came up with a decent knock of 39 in the last inning, which is something the team would be backing him to emulate in this outing. Pacers Mrittunjoy Chowdhury and Shoriful Islam will be banked for unsettling the rivals throughout, with spinners Mehidy Hasan and Nasum Ahmed being backed to do the honors in the midway stage.
For the Comilla Victorians, it’s just a matter of clicking altogether in this fixture as they have some of the finest in-form players, namely Faf du Plessis, Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudul Hasan Joy – who form their core batting line-up, even the all-rounders – Moeen Ali and Sunil Narine – who’ve chipped in with vital performances. Add to that, the wicket-taking duo of Mustafizur Rahman and Shohidul Islam. It’s a pretty solid squad for this fixture.
It must’ve been a bit frustrating for the Comilla Victorians to have missed out on a chance at the Final in the first attempt, yet, they would be backed as the stronger side in contention to Chattogram Challengers. And rightly so, Comilla has some of the biggest names in T20 cricket in Faf du Plessis, Sunil Narine, Moeen Ali, and stars from Bangladesh cricket, namely Liton Das and Mustafizur Rahman, who alongside the local talents could be anticipated to rack up a fight in this fixture. As per CCH vs COV dream11 prediction and the betting odds, Comilla Victorians are heavy favorites to win this match.
