Sylhet Strikers will take on Rangpur Riders in the 25th match of the current edition of the Bangladesh Premier League on January 27. Sylhet International Cricket Stadium will be the hosts for this game which is scheduled to commence from 1:30 PM IST. Let’s have a look at the best team and player betting tips from the SS vs RR match predictions.
Sylhet are not the same side they were a year ago. Last season, they finished at the foot of the table and now they are sitting above everyone in the ladder with 6 wins from 7. Rangpur Riders are positioned at the 4th spot in the table standings with three wins and as many losses from six. This will be the first meeting between the two sides this season. Ahead of the gameday, I have done my best and collated the top team & player betting tips from the SS vs RR match prediction.
Let us have a look at our top two team betting tips from the SS vs RR match prediction.
On the back of three wins and as many losses, Rangpur Riders are slowly climbing up the ladder and currently sit in 4th position. In the last five matches, Rangpur Riders’ total fours read 13, 17, 8, 14 & 13. This sums up to over 65 fours from five matches, averaging 13.00 fours per game. In four out of these five matches, RR’s totals fours ranked above our target. This entails a 80% efficiency of RR to score over 11 fours in this game. Against Sylhet Strikers in the last five head-to-head clashes, Rangpur Riders scored 15, 10, 20, 14 & 14 fours. In all of these games, except for one, Rangpur managed to amass our target. Once again this entails a 80% possibility of RR to hit over 11 fours. Mohammad Naim, Rony Talukdar and Shoaib Malik are the ones to hit the most number of fours for Rangpur Riders this season. The three of them smashed 19, 18 & 15 fours from six matches. Hence, we have sided with RR to score over 11 fours in this game. To capitalise on this, grab the odds of 2.05 offered by our affiliate partner 1XBET in RR’s favour from the SS vs RR match prediction.
Rangpur Riders are having a topsy turvy campaign this season and their openers are the first two people who should be blamed for this. The 2017 BPL winners experimented with some player or the other in almost all the games at the top but none of them succeeded in their mission. RR’s opening duo has revolved around these players this season namely Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Naim, Saim Ayub, Rony Talukdar & Parvez Hossain Emon. In their last five matches, RR posted scores of 2, 28, 0, 1, 0 runs before the fall of the first wicket. This totals to 31 runs from five matches, averaging 6.20 runs per game for the opening wicket. In four out of these five matches, the Riders failed to post a total above our target, thus entailing a 80% efficiency to do the same in the forthcoming match as well. Against SS in the last five head-to-head meetings, RR’s total before the first fall read 77, 5, 0, 11 & 7 runs.Once again in four out of five occasions, RR failed to score above our target before losing their first. Opener Mahedi Hasan is averaging just 12.60 this season while Mohammad Naim’s average stands at just 21.33. Therefore, it would be fair to place your money on RR to score under 16.5 runs before the fall of the first wicket in this game. Our affiliate partner 1XBET offered the odds of 1.832 in RR’s favour from the SS vs RR match prediction.
We have chosen Najmul Hossain Shanto as our top player betting tip from the SS vs RR match prediction. Have a look!
It would be unfair of us if we do not include Najmul Hossain Shanto to our list of picks today. With 281 runs from 7 matches, Najmul is Sylhet’s leading run-scorer this season. He is averaging close to 56.20. His scores this season read 89*, 13, 12, 57, 19, 48 & 43* this season. Since making his T20I debut against Zimbabwe back in 2019, the 24-year-old has accumulated 384 runs from 17 matches at a decent average of 24.00. The southpaw caught the attention of all at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup last year in Australia. He scored 180 runs from just five matches at a phenomenal average of 36.00. He emerged as the leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in the competition. His last five scores in T20Is read 54, 21, 71, 9 & 25. If we look at his BPL career, Najmul has accumulated 1302 runs in just 59 innings at an average of about 25.50. Last season he scored 188 from 10 innings at an average of about 20.90. 2022 happened to be a fantastic year for the youngster. He scored 308 runs from 11 innings at an average of about 30.80. Although his record against Rangpur Riders is not that great, this is something that this 24-year-old youngster would like to improve. With that said, we have backed Najmul to score over 21.5 runs in this game. To capitalise on this glorious betting opportunity, grab the odds of 1.832 offered by our affiliate partner 1XBET in Najmul’s favour from the SS vs RR match prediction.
