BPL T20 Eliminator Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 12 Feb, 01:00 PM (IST)
Series: BPL T20 Eliminator Match
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium – Dhaka, Bangladesh
RAN vs FBA Dream11 Prediction:
- Rony Talukdar has knocked 330 runs for the team in the 2023 edition and will be locking in to give them a steady start with the bat, at the top of the innings in this eliminator as well. On the other hand, Azmatullah Omarzai has been the team’s leading wicket-taker with 15 wickets and heads into Match 43 on the back of 2 wickets against Comilla Victorians.
- With Iftikhar Ahmed and Mohammad Wasim both out of action for the Fortune Barishal, South African International, Dwaine Pretorius will be expected to lead the charge with the bat. He scored 48 runs off just 29 balls in Match 41. Karim Janat has picked up 10 wickets for FBA and we expect him to be the team’s leading wicket-taker in this game as well.
- Anamul Haque is coming off a decent inning of 28 runs in Match 42, and we expect him to at least score 35 runs at the top of the order for Fortune Barishal in Match 43.

Weather & Pitch Report:
With a 0% chance of rain, the weather is expected to be as high as 30 degrees and as low as 18 degrees during the match hours. The humidity level is predicted to be around 60-70%.
Since the match will be played in broad daylight, both captains will be looking to use the batting surface first. But expect spinners to get an uneven turn and pacers to be helped with unpredictable bounce.
Since Shere-e-Bangla’s pitch has helped all sorts of bowlers, both the captain will be looking to win the toss to bat first. A total of 160-170 seems like a highly competitive task on this uneven track.

Rangpur Riders are favorites to beat Fortune Barishal
RAN Key Players:
Rony Talukdar –
The Riders have already seen how their batting order collapses in the last game when Talukdar wasn’t able to build on his positive start. It is key for this place to hold one end steady for RR if they are to beat the Fortune Barishal in this one-off knockout game.
Hasan Mahmud –
This 23-year-old right-arm medium bowler has already clinched 15 wickets so far in the competition and will most likely try to chase the top honors.
Azmatullah Omarzai –
Being one wicket short of taking the top honors in the most wickets, this Afghanistani right-arm medium-fast will be looking to contribute with the bat as well as with the bowl.
FBA Key Players:
Dwaine Pretorius –
Having smashed 48 runs at a strike rate of 165.52 in the previous game, Pretorius will once again have the responsibility to counter-attack the dynamic bowling unit of RR.
Shakib Al Hasan –
Being the leading team scorer with 357 runs registered against his name, Al Hasam will be expected to bat quite up the order in this knockout game. He has already got 3 half-centuries in BPL 2023.
Karim Janat –
Although this 24-year-old Afghanistan International has not been economical for FBA yet has taken 10 wickets for them. On a track like Shere-e-Bangla, his variation could dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.
