THE TEAM NEWS

KHULNA TITANS

Coach: Mahela Jayawardene

Captain: Mahmudullah

  • Khulna Titans’ hopes of a knockout spot were extinguished on Saturday as they were handed a heavy defeat by the Sylhet Sixers as chasing an impressive target of 195/4, they were bowled out for 137 and fell 58 runs short so they only have pride to play for here.

  • The batting line-up has improved in recent matches but they could not match the Sixers in that match, and they would prefer batting first where possible here but it is difficult to see how they can change their line-up again to improve.

  • Given their performances have been much better in the second half of the group phase, the chances are they will not make any major changes to the team for this game unless they decide to rotate some of their locals to give younger players a chance.

COMILLA VICTORIANS

Coach: Mohammad Salahuddin

Captain: Imrul Kayes

  • Comilla Victorians have won three of their last four matches to get back into contention for the knockout places and they will be keen to kick on here to grab another win following their victory over Dhaka Dynamites by 7 runs last time out.

  • The arrival of Thisara Perera and Liam Dawson has given them real strength with both bat and ball as along with Shahid Afridi, they have three of the best T20 all-rounders in the game and even if they lose early wickets, they know they can still chase or build a respectable total.

  • Their talented bowling attack finally showed what it is capable of in that win over the Dynamites and if last season’s star Mohammad Saifuddin can regain his form, then they have comfortably the best attack in the competition.

THE PREDICTION

The race for the top four places is warming up nicely now in this final week and Comilla Victorians are finding form at just the right time. They are looking like one of the stronger teams in the tournament with their trio of superb all-rounders and they should ultimately have too much for the Titans who are having a tournament to forget. With nothing to play for, it is hard to see the Titans really troubling the Victorians.
