THE TEAM NEWS

KHULNA TITANS

Coach: Mahela Jayawardene

Captain: Mahmudullah

  • Khulna Titans remain winless with four defeats following an agonising super over defeat to Chittagong Vikings on Saturday but they are still competing hard and edging closer to picking up that first victory.

  • Dawid Malan top-scored for Khulna with 45 and the Middlesex man will be looking to continue that form in his third BPL game after a disappointing spell with Cape Town Blitz in the Mzansi Super League.

  • The hosts are boosted by the arrival of veteran pace bowler Lasith Malinga, who comes in after captaining Sri Lanka in the limited over leg of their tour of New Zealand and they will hope the pace bowler can make an immediate impact.

RAJSHAHI KINGS

Coach: Lance Klusener

Captain: Mehedy Hasan Miraz

  • Rajshahi come into the game in confident mood after getting their second win of the campaign last time out against last year's champions, Rangpur Riders, in what was arguably their best performance of the tournament so far.

  • Mustafizur Rahman proved himself once again as one of the best death-over bowlers in the game, conceding just seven runs in two overs when the Riders needed 22 off the final three overs, and his bowling will be key again against Khulna.

  • Essex skipper Ryan ten Doeschate plays his second game in the BPL following a spell with Bhairahawa Gladiators in Nepal's Everest Premier League and he will to contribute more than his 14 last time out while Laurie Evans is under growing pressure now after another failure.

THE PREDICTION

The impact Malinga can make on his arrival will be crucial for a Titans side reeling from four successive defeats, while Rajshahi go into the game on a high following their win against Rangpur. The Kings will also have good memories of their seven-wicket win in the match-up between these sides last week in Dhaka and that may give them the edge here once again.
