Mehedi "Lefty" Rana troubles the batsmen

Mehedi Hasan Rana to be the top team bowler for Challengers @ 3.50 (Bet 365)

The 22-year old left-arm seamer has risen above all the Big Daddies of the league and has successfully troubled the batsmen almost every time he takes the field. Mehedi Hasan Rana is now the highest wicket taker in the league with 13 wickets in six matches for the Challengers so far. Rana has an average of 11.46 and has struck at a rate of 10.2 – which is unbelievable for a 22-year old, who is not experienced at all! In the 13 wickets he’s taken so far in the ongoing edition of the BPL, Hasan has two four wicket hauls as well. His figures in the tournament so far – 1/33, 4/23, 3/23, 4/28, 1/16 and 0/26 – indicates how amazingly consistent he has been. Bet 365 is offering odds of 3.50 for Rana to be the top team bowler for Chattogram Challengers and I can assure you that is going to be the likely outcome.

High odds on short format specialist

Dawid Malan to be the top team batsman for Warriors @ 5.50 (Paddy Power)

Dawid Malan is the kind of batsman who is becoming an expert of making you money with his performances with the bat. What a year Malan he’s had with his willow in the shorter formats of the game! In the Vitality Blast earlier this year, Malan amassed 490 runs in 14 matches at an average of 40.83 which included one century and two half centuries. He made it to the England T20 International squad and there too he ran riot, going on to score 208 runs in four matches at an average of 69.33. 

The Brit has gone on to score a century against New Zealand earlier this year as well. And now, he has already announced his arrival in the Bangladesh Premier League in fine fashion – Malan has 303 runs under his name in seven matches at an average of 60.60, decorated with one hundred and as many fifties. Paddy Power is offering odds of 5.50 for this destructive English batsman and if you have noticed the statistics that I just mentioned, you know what the likely outcome is going to be.
