DPL T20 2021: Rating Chances of all super league teams winning the tournament
Prime Bank Cricket Club – 7/10
Prime Bank finished the DPL T20 2021 round-robin league as the table-topper, winning nine of eleven games and losing only two. The opening combination of Tamim Iqbal and RonyTalukdar is one of the most important aspects of Prime Bank's success. The pair has gotten off to a strong start at the top, scoring runs freely.
However, Tamim will be unavailable in the Super League, which will undoubtedly upset Prime Bank. While skipper AnamulHaque has made a few mistakes, otherwise he has performed well for the most part. MohamadMithun, Mustafizur Rahman, and Shoriful Islam have also contributed to the team's consistency throughout the campaign.
Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club–8/10
Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club finished second on the points table in the Dhaka Premier League 2021, making them one of the most consistent teams in the league. Prime Doleshwar performed well as a team in the first phase of the tournament, winning seven of their eleven matches. They have a few talented players who are in excellent form. Prime Doleshwar's best players are top-order batsman SaifHasan and pace bowler Kamrul Islam Rabbi.
Abahani Ltd – 9/10
Abahani Ltd haven't been the most consistent team this season despite finishing third in the first phase of DPL 2021's points table. The batting unit of Abahani Ltd, particularly two young players Mohammad Naim and MunimShahriar, contributed significantly to the team's success.
However, Abahani does have the strongest team in the competition and they will come back strong in the super league stage. Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and Taijul Islam are among the top talents on Mushfiqur Rahim's side. They may also rediscover their form in the Super League phase.
Gazi Group Cricketers – 8/10
The Gazi Group Cricketers initially struggled in the tournament, but they have gradually regained their rhythm and secured a spot in the Super League. With 14 points, they finished fourth in the first stage.
Gazi Group Cricketers have a number of quality players in their squad who can win games on their own. They have Akbar Ali, Soumya Sarkar, Yasir Ali, and MahediHasan in addition to skipper Mahmudullah and veteran MominulHaque. Gazi have a chance to win the championship if they can stay consistent during the super league stage.
Mohammedan Sporting Club – 6/10
Shakib Al Hasan guided Mohammedan Sporting Club to secure a place in the Super League. However, the best all-rounder is unavailable for this round, and ShuvagataHom has taken over as Mohameddan's captain in the crucial stage.
Mohammedan came in fifth place in the points table, with six victories and four losses, indicating that they struggled in the first round. Mohammedan has a minimal chance of winning this year's competition because their players are inexperienced compared to the other teams. Shamsur Rahman, Irfan Sukkur, and Abu Hider Rony are three of their most important players.
Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club – 7/10
The defending champions Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club are placed sixth in the first round of the DPL T20 2021. Out of the eleven games, they won six and lost four. Captain NurulHasanSohan has been in terrific form from the beginning of the campaign.
The squad has notable match-winners, but they haven't fared well in the competition. Ziaur Rahman, Mohammad Ashraful, Elias Sunny, and ImrulKayes will have to perform well in the Super League round if Sheikh Jamal want to defend the title.
After examining the strengths and weaknesses of the teams, it is clear that all the teams have a fair chance to win this season’s DPL T20 Cricket League. However, it will undoubtedly be a competitive round, as all of the clubs are keen to win the championship. Teams must be consistent in order to win this sort of competition. Overall, we believe the best team will win the tournament.
