Sylhet Strikers will face Comilla Victorians in Qualifier 1 of the Bangladesh Premier League on Sunday February 12 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Strikers have been in terrific form throughout the competition as they were the first one to qualify for the playoffs and cement their place in the Qualifier.
Meanwhile, Victorians made an astonishing comeback after losing first three games as they have now won a record nine straight matches. Let's try to understand which team has a better chance to qualify for the final.
We can assure one thing that the cricket fans will be treated with a highly competitive clash. The nature of the pitch is such that it provides decent assistance to batter and bowlers, as well. The average 1st inning score is 151.
For Sylhet Strikers, Rejaur Rahman Raja has been an ace bowler while Towhid Hridoy and Najmul Hossain Shanto have been two impressive top-order batters. Hridoy has smashed five half-centuries in the season while Shanto has also scored three half-centuries.
Meanwhile, Comilla Victorians will heavily rely on Md. Rizwan, who has amassed 351 runs, including 3 half-centuries. Litton Das has also scored 317 runs in 11 games at a strike rate of 28.82 runs per game. Whereas Mustafizur Rahman picked three wickets in the previous game and would be hoping to continue his momentum.
Probable playing XI:
Litton Das (C), Mukidul Islam, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Nabi, Tanvir Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Andre Russell, Mohammad Rizwan (Wk), Sunil Narine, Jaker Ali Anik, Imrul Kayes
Mushfiqur Rahim (Wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Thisara Perera, Rubel Hossain, Towhid Hridoy, Rejaur Rahman Raja, Ryan Burl, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Gulbadin Naib, Zakir Hasan
Both the teams have played quality cricket in the tournament and are set to produce mouth-watering clash in the Qualifier 1. But as per our prediction, Sylhet Strikers are likely to win the game and become the first team to qualify for the final.
