After losing two consecutive games Sylhet Sixers fell down from top of the table but rain helped them to retain their position back. Sylhet Sixers are sharing first position along with Dhaka Dynamites. Sixers are performing better and are at top of the leaderboard with 7 points. On the other side, Rajshahi Kings need to lift themselves up as they have only one win from four matches. After completion of 16 matches in BPL Rajshahi Kings are at last position. Rajshahi Kings already lost to Sylhet Sixers when these two teams met earlier in the on going season. We have to wait and watch how Kings will come back and take their revenge.
Sher-e-Bangla – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Cloudy and rain is expected
New surface is expected to be prepared for this match. Slow and sluggish pitch is expected to be prepared which will be more useful for spinners.
Team News : Rajshahi Kings
Simmons, Rahim, Haque are the important players of this team. In other words we can tell they are the main pillars for Rajshahi Kings. They replaced Simmons in the last match and he proved his worth in BPL once again. Simmons was unstoppable in the last game against Comilla Victorians and gave a flying start for his team. In middle order Franklin is in good touch with both bat and ball. Mehadi Hasan is a good spinner and he will be very crucial on this kind of wicket. He can easily get some turn and can trouble the batsman with his deliveries. Farhad Raza and Williams will play a key role when it comes to seam bowling.
Team News : Sylhet Sixers
After a rain spoiling game Sixers are back into action.They lost couple of matches consecutively and then shared a point each with Khulna Titans as game was washed away.Now they will come back with high confidence and already they against Rajshahi Kings in their earlier matches. Upul Tharanga and Fletcher are the most imprtant players for Sylhet. In the first 3 matches the duo built up a good partnership and Sylhet won all those three matches. But without any cause and reason they removed Fletcher and paid for that. So Fletcher can come back and play against Kings. Gunathilaka is another name and he is playing very good with a good strike rate.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. Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam will also be crucial with the ball.
