Dhaka Dynamites have won the toss and elected to bowl first against Comilla Victorians in the final battle of Bangladesh Premier League T20 at home of cricket Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur on Friday.
Both the franchises have won the tournament previously. Dynamites have four all-rounders, who have between them a small matter of 33 major T20 titles.
The Victorians aren't short of star-power either, with veteran Shahid Afridi, and the in-form Thisara Perera at their command. This mini battle of the allrounders should lend the final an exciting sub-plot, and could prove pivotal in the end.
Comilla Victorians: Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Imrul Kayes (capt), Anamul Haque (wk), Shamsur Rahman, Shahid Afridi, Thisara Perera, Mohammad Saifuddin, Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan, Sanjit Saha
Dhaka Dynamites: Upul Tharanga, Sunil Narine, Rony Talukdar, Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahmudul Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Rubel Hossain, Qazi Onik
