The Bangladesh Premier League gears up for a big-ticket fixture as the defending champions Comilla Victorians are set to face the Sylhet Strikers. Both teams had a contrasting 2022 season, as the Strikers finished dead last while the Comilla-based team took home the title. But moving to the 2023 season, Sylhet has looked a like a better team as they registered a big win in their opening game.
The Shere Bangla National Stadium so far has been a bowling-friendly ground where batters have suffered. The average first innings score is 150.

The Champions of last season have a great team for the 2023 season as well. Led by Liton Das, who has been the best Bangladesh batter over the last few months, the Comilla Victorians also have a great bowling attack with Mustafizur Rahman leading the charge and experienced all-rounders like SC Williams and Mohammad Nabi.
