December 12, 2017
Published in Sports

DHAKA: Chris Gayle hit a sparkling century to power Rangpur Riders to a thumping 57-run victory in the final of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Season 5 at Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka, on Tuesday.

Gayle hit 18 massive sixes in his 146 off 69 balls and was well supported by former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum who chipped in with a 43-ball 51 to guide their team to 206 in 20 overs.

Chasing the 207-run target, Dhaka Dynamites could manage only 149 in 20 overs.

Gayle, of course, is the Man of the Match

Final squads

Dhaka Dynamites: 1 Mehedi Maruf, 2 Evin Lewis, 3 Joe Denly, 4 Kieron Pollard, 5 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 6 Shahid Afridi, 7 Mosaddek Hossain, 8 Sunil Narine, 9 Jahurul Islam (wk), 10 Abu Hider, 11 Khaled Ahmed

Rangpur Riders: 1 Johnson Charles, 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Brendon McCullum, 4 Ravi Bopara, 5 Mashrafe Mortaza, 6 Mohammad Mithun, 7 Nahidul Islam, 8 Sohag Gazi, 9 Rubel Hossain, 10 Nazmul Islam, 11 Isuru Udana

News from the center: Dhaka have won the toss and elected to bowl first in the final show-down.

DHAKA: Rangpur Riders will take on Dhaka Dynamites in the final of the Bangladesh Premier League 2017 on Tuesday where all eyes are on the pinch-hitters for today’s encounter. 

Shahid Afridi, Chris Gayle and Keiron Pollard may not be all on the same team but are facing each other today. The BPL final promises to be a thrilling encounter since Gayle  has regained their form and could cause trouble for the Dhaka Dynamites.

Meanwhile, Shahid Afridi is also looking dangerous and can hammer Rangpur Riders’ bowlers for sixes and fours if he gets going in the innings.

Rain is likely to stay away in the final though the city has received light drizzle in the preceding days. The pitch has remained under covers for the past couple of days yet according to some players, the bounce on it has improved.

Teams

Dhaka Dynamites (probable): 1 Mehedi Maruf, 2 Evin Lewis, 3 Joe Denly, 4 Kieron Pollard, 5 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 6 Shahid Afridi, 7 Mosaddek Hossain, 8 Sunil Narine, 9 Jahurul Islam (wk), 10 Abu Hider, 11 Mohammad Saddam

After the win in the second Qualifier, Rangpur are unlikely to make any changes for the final.

Rangpur Riders (probable): 1 Chris Gayle, 2 Johnson Charles, 3 Brendon McCullum, 4 Mohammad Mithun (wk), 5 Ravi Bopara, 6 Nahidul Islam, 7 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 8 Sohag Gazi, 9 Isuru Udana, 10 Nazmul Islam, 11 Rubel Hossain

Form guide

(last five completed matches, most recent first)

Dhaka Dynamites Win, Win, Win, Loss, Win
Rangpur Riders Win, Win, Loss, Win, Loss
