Speaking of the match conditions, game 32 is going to be the fourth match of the ongoing BPL 2024 to be played in Chattogram. In the previous edition of the BPL, the highest team total was registered at this venue. Fortune Barishal amassed 238/4 against Rangpur Riders. However, most of the matches saw low-scoring encounters. The average first-innings score was 162. In terms of setting targets versus chasing, seven games were won by the chasing side, while five were won by teams batting first. Hence the surface on offer will most likely be batting-friendly but with some grass covering. This implies that even though batters will have a good outing, the middle stages of the game will be crucial as the grass can assist pacers to exploit the bounce factor to chip in with some wickets to derail the plans of the batting side.
Hence, batting first can be a more viable option for the skipper winning the toss and setting a target in the upcoming BPL fixture, while the chasing side will need to assess the pitch and plan their pace of chasing accordingly. Regarding the weather conditions, the overall temperature is expected to hover around 24 degrees Celsius along with humidity slightly on the higher side with 57% humidity expected but without any interruption of rains.
