This is a battle between the teams who are standing at bottom of the table. Sylhet Sixers game in this tournament is reminding me of cyclone. They started the tournament with hat trick wins and thereafter they have not won any other game.They have played 10 games won 3, lost 6 amd one match was ruined due to rain. Chittagong never showed any kind of enthusiasm in this tournament. Though they are getting a flying start from their current skipper Ronchi but their middle could not continue the same kind of innings and the result is a loss in every match. They have played 10 matches won 2, lost 7 and one game was spoilt due to rain.
Sher-e-Bangla – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Partly Cloudy and no chance of rain
Pitch will help batsmen initially and then help spinners when game moves on.
Team News : Sylhet Sixers
The middle stage of thier campaign really killed Sylhet Sixers. Babar Azam will the key player for Sixers. He has two good matches and Sixers will expect the same kind of innings in today’s match also. Fletcher impressed in the first three games when he was opening with Tharange but in lateral stages he started struggling. Finally Sabbir Rahman has worked his way into the BPL and he has to contribute a lot in this match. Sylhet bowling is not upto the mark and they are facing many problems in this particular zone. Their earlier bowlers of the tournament Plunkett, Santokie showed great wicket taking ability but the team didn’t utilize them properly. Currently Rabbi, Abul Hasan are doing good for Sixers. In last match Sohail Tanvir was added and he must play some crucial role in Sixers bowling attack.
Team news : Chittagong Vikings
Team’s batting is completely rely on the likes of Ronchi at top of the order. The skipper has a very good season and producing some quick fire knocks. They don’t have very big and named players in thier team other than Ronchi. Sri Lanka players left the squad and they don’t have good batsmen now. Sarkar failed in the tournament and he is supporting his partner, Ronchi.Haque played one or two blistering innings but failed to produce the same kind of innings in every match. South African all rounder Van Zyl has had an instant impact sine joining the side. Vikings contribution with ball also very poor. Taskin Ahmed is the crucial player for Vikings when it comes to bowling side. Rotating various players in and out of the side has taken it’s toll on the team. Reece can retain his spot in today’s match.
