THE TEAM NEWS

KHULNA TIGERS

  • Khulna Tigers put in an emphatic performance to make it back-to-back victories over Cumilla Warriors and secure their place in the play-offs of the Bangladesh Premier League while eliminating the defending champions in the process.
  • After their comfortable win in their previous clash, the Tigers backed that up with a resounding victory as they ran out 92-run winners thanks to dominating with both bat and ball.
  • Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim was agonisingly short of a century as he finished unbeaten on 98 to help his side to a huge total of 218/2 before the bowling unit did what was required with a strong showing as they restricted the Warriors to just 126/9 in reply.

DHAKA PLATOON

  • Dhaka Platoon went down to Rangpur Rangers in a defeat that brought their three-match winning streak to and end but with a place in the play-offs secure, they have a chance to get back to winning ways with little pressure as they attempt to finish in the top two.
  • Platoon finished their innings with the ball very well as they took five wickets in the final two overs to prevent Rangers setting a bigger total and will have been content knowing they needed 150 to win.
  • That however did not turn out to be the case as they lost some late wickets of their own to stifle their progress but in truth they were already chasing the game by that point and they ended up finishing on 138/9 to go down to an 11-run defeat.

THE PREDICTION

Khulna Tigers are shaping as a real threat in the race for the BPL title after they earned another superb win last time out which sealed their place in the final four. They produced their best batting display of the tournament and will look to build on that in their final game of the group stage as they attempt to earn a spot in the top two. Dhaka Platoon stand in their way in this clash and they too will have their sights set on a place in the top two but it’s the Tigers who can carry their form on and win this game.
