    LIVE: Chittagong Vikings 96/6 in overs 16 | Batting: Nazmul Hossain Milon 1(1): Bangladesh’s last hope with the bat departs. After holding on to the innings, Tamim had to go for the big shot and he was taken. Nabi could not do much today while Elliott also failed. Disappointing batting performance by the local team.

    LIVE: Chittagong Vikings 66/2 in overs 12 | Batting: Mahmudul Hasan 16(16), Tamim Iqbal 26(34): Vikings have not lost anymore wickets but the runrate has come down significantly. The batsmen are playing too carefully for T20 cricket. The required runrate is above 8.

  • 3:12 PM IST

    LIVE: Chittagong Vikings 44/2 in overs 8 | Batting: Mahmudul Hasan 2(3), Tamim Iqbal 18(23): Another wicket for the Dynamites and their bowlers are doing equally well. Vikings are yet to build up a good partnership but have lost 2 big wickets.

    OUT! Anamul Haque c Seekuge Prasanna b Nasir Hossain 17 (15)

  • 2:57 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 20/1 in overs 4 | Batting: Anamul Haque 6(4), Tamim Iqbal 8(13): Vikings lose an early wicket here. Though the target is achievable, they need to build a good partnership in the beginning and get god runs on the board. Tamim is at the crease and as a captain and senior batsman, it is his responsibility to guide the batsman at the other end.

  • 2:51 PM IST

    OUT! Jahurul Islam run out 6(7)

  • 2:21 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 148/9 in overs 20 | Batting: Alauddin Babu 5(7), Sunzamul Islam 7(5): So, the Dynamites end their innings with 148 runs which looks achievable. The Vikings have a strong batting line-up and they need to put in their 100 per cent in today’s game. The bowler’s have done their job. Nabi and Mills have been terrific.

    OUT! Alauddin Babu run out 5 (7)

    OUT! Mosaddek Hossain c Nazmul Hossain Milon b Tymal Mills 35 (26)

  • 1:57 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 128/5 in overs 16 | Batting: Mosaddek Hossain 32(19), Seekuge Prasanna 8(10): A brilliant comeback by the Vikings with the ball. The onus is upon Mosaddek now, he is a potent middle-order batsman who has impressed with his skills so far and will have to play like a pro to get his team to a safe total here at Chittagong.

  • 1:46 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 102/5 in overs 13 | Batting: Mosaddek Hossain 13(9), Seekuge Prasanna 1(2): WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DYNAMITES? After a blistering start, the cricketers went on throwing their wickets away. Some very good spells as well, but the run outs were terrible. 100 up but they have lost 5 wickets.

  • 1:41 PM IST

    OUT! Dwayne Bravo run out 3 (4)

  • 1:15 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 71/1 in overs 8 | Batting: Kumar Sangakkara 17(20), Nasir Hossain 19(8): Dynamites lose their first wicket. A successful bowling change by the Vikings’ skipper Tamim and Nabi has been phenomenal for the team with the ball.

  • 12:55 PM IST

    OUT! Mehedi Maruf lbw b Mohammad Nabi 33 (20)

  • 12:51 PM IST

    LIVE: Dhaka Dynamites 38/0 in overs 4 | Batting: Mehedi Maruf 32(17), Kumar Sangakkara 5(7): The usual pair of Maruf and Sangakkara have opened Dynamites’ innings and that is how Mrauf loves to start his innings. Hits two boundaries in the very first over. Then comes a six in the third over and the bowlers already under pressure to get the other deliveries in the right areas and not to give away too many runs.

Good afternoon, শুভ অপরাহ্ন! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2016. Here you will get all the live updates of Match 17 of the domestic Twenty20 (T20) tournament. The match is between Dhaka Dynamites and Chittagong Vikings and will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong. The Dynamites are currently sitting on top of the table while the Vikings are second from last. The table toppers are surely the favourites for the match but they will want to take the Vikings lightly as they have a strong team that has all elements to win the next fixture.

The Dynamites are definitely one of the strongest sides in the competition with names like Kumar Sangakkara, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahela Jayawardene, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell and others associated with the franchise. They have so far won three of their four matches and their latest victory came against the reigning champions Comilla Victorians in their last match. The team will definitely be confident about their next game and will be immensely confident.

On the other hand are the Vikings, who had a positive start to the tournament but failed to hold on to the momentum and as a result lost all the following games. Big names like Tamim Iqbal, Chris Gayle, Shoaib Malik, Swayne Smith and Grant Elliot are associated with the side and if they go in with their full strength, they are sure to win the contest. Another performer for the team is Mohammad Nabi, who, despite the team’s consecutive failures, has grabbed attentions with his performance.
