Sher-e-Bangla – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Cloudy and showers are expected
Batsmen will need to get their eye in before playing attacking strokes. Spinners will get more help from the pitch than seamers
After losing in a thriller against Dhaka Dynamites now Khulna will face Sylhet Sixers in their next match. After the end of 4 matches Khulna Titans has 2 wins and 2 losses.It was their game in the match against Dhaka but Dhaka cleverly managed the things and robbed the match away from Khulna Titans. In the coming matches majority of the runs can be expected to come from the bats of Rossouw and Klinger ,who has good potential in hitting. The Caribbean powerful striker Carlos Brathwaite, in the middle order giving the team more strength. We already noticed his innings in Dhaka’s match and this giant is always dangerous. Abu Jayed will spearhead the pace attack for the Titans. The Sri Lankan’s another mystery bowlers Akila Dananjaya can play again in this match also. As pitch is supporting for spinners he may continue in the team.
Sylhet Sixers will be a little down on confidence after having lost two consecutive matches. They got break to their winning streak and fallen down to second place in points table. Upul Tharanga and Andre Fletcher partnership for the opening wicket was the biggest plus for Sylhet Sixers in the first three games.Fletcher didn’t play in last game as team gave him some rest. Without Fletcher team is not getting good number of runs on the board and expecting he will play against Khulna Titans.While Bresnan and Abul Hasan are doing their jobs in pace department.It would be good for Sylhet Sixers if they go with Bresnan and Plunkett in pace department as they have lot of experience.The left arm spinner Taijul Islam is having a mixed season.If he bowls well in one game then immedietely he will be expensive in another game. But still he is a good spinner among local players. If the team wants more spin options from local players then Nabil Samad or Shivagata Hom may get an oppurtunity.
