Both teams come into this final with good form behind them as the Comilla Victorians have been the most consistent performers over the whole tournament, while the most successful team in BPL history – the Dhaka Dynamites – are finding form at just the right time.
Rangpur Riders were the best team in the group stage as they topped the ladder but the absence of both De Villiers and Hales for the knockout phase could really dent their chances. With Chris Gayle struggling for form and only Rilee Rossouw proving reliable with the bat for them, the champions have lost some momentum.
A fascinating game between two teams that had excellent first halves to the group stages, but both limped into the last two play-off places with some pretty abysmal form. The Dynamites have the star quality in their ranks and there were some promising signs against the Titans on Saturday that they are regaining some form.
With this match offering a route directly to the final, both teams are likely to field their strongest line-ups in contrast to their game on Saturday where the Victorians rested Lewis and Afridi. They should return to the line-up but they will have to overcome any psychological edge that the Riders have over them after having hammered them twice already this season.
All the motivation is in favour of Dhaka Dynamites who know that nothing short of a win will suffice if they are to keep their tournament alive and reach the play-offs.
This match could well be a dress rehearsal for what could be the Bangladesh Premier League final as these two teams have arguably been the best two in the group stage.
Neither of these teams have anything to really play for now as the Vikings are in the final four and the Sixers have been eliminated which makes this game particularly difficult to predict.
This is a huge match for Dhaka Dynamites who desperately need to snap this four-match losing streak quickly. Due to their excellent net run rate, one win will likely suffice from the next two matches so even if they look like losing this match, their focus will be on ensuring their run rate is not damaged too badly.
Nothing but a win will suffice for these two teams as defeat will eliminate them from top four contention so there is plenty on the line here. All the momentum is with the Sixers however at the moment with their batsmen finding form at the right time of the season.
Both of these teams come into this match having lost their last three matches in a row and they need a win as they risk throwing away a top-four place with the Kings and Sixers hot on their heels.
The Riders are playing stunning cricket right now as they look capable of scoring well over 200 in every game they play with their top four batsmen in scintillating form. The Kings know they have to win here to be in with a shout of a top four place....
This top-of-the-table clash promises to be a highly entertaining affair although all the momentum is with the Victorians coming into this one. The Vikings have stuttered of late and that has largely been down to their overseas players....
The first match between these two teams was a classic as the Dynamites edged it by two runs and this one promises to be another excellent encounter. The Riders are in sensational form right now and compared to that first match, they look a completely different outfit with Gayle and De Villiers in the team now.
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...
