Rangpur Riders Updates
The Rangpur Riders team made a three years contract with BBL management. The team will participate in the upcoming BBL 2023 season starting from January 2023.
In the previous season, the team lost many players to the other team as their entire star players signed with other teams.
The team has icon players Mustafizur Rahman and Muhammad Nabi as the captain, who moved to other teams and played the last BPL.
Similarly, Muhammad Shahzad and Taskin Ahmad were regular with other teams in the BPL 2021-22.
In our Rangpur Riders Team Predictions, it is difficult to tell what the new management will decide about the coaching staff and players’ draft. But, they chose the T20 world cup 2022 star bowler of the team as an icon player.
In addition, Taskin Ahmad will play for the team as an icon player. The team bags three players from Pakistan and one from Afghanistan, which we will discuss further in our Rangpur Riders Team Predictions.
Rangpur Riders team Predictions BPL 2023
Rangpur Riders decided to play the top players from Pakistan in the BPL 2023 season. The team has signed three-star players from Pakistan.
Pakistan veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik will play for the team and will most probably lead the team if no Bangladeshi player takes charge. The Asia Cup hero of Pakistan, Muhammad Nawaz, will also be there for the team as an all-rounder. The speed star from Pakistan, Haris Rauf, will also play for the team. Afghanistan’s young medium-fast bowler Azmatullah Omarzai is also with the team in this BPL.
Our Rangpur Riders Team Predictions will involve the predictions of players, and in our view, Rangpur has selected three fast bowlers so far. Hence, they will only require one more fast bowler in the team and probably go with any other Pakistan or Afghanistan fast bowler.
The two spin-bowling all-rounders are already included in the team, so this slot is also acquired. The team will need top-order batters at number one, two and three. Pakistani openers Shan Masood, Haidar Ali and Fakhar Zaman are available for that slot. Afghanistan’s openers and West Indian openers are also available for the team.
In the middle order, the team will play some Bangladeshi players and might choose one of two Bangladeshi batters in the team. Then, the team sets sight on the under-19 players and can bag one or two players from them to give exposure to youngsters.
As their previous records showed, the team will also go for a foreign coach this season. This was all from our Rangpur Riders Team Predictions.
