The Khulna Titans are dead last on the BPL league table and have no chance of making it to the playoffs. The side has only managed to win two out of the ten games it has played this season and has been as terrible as the stats suggest.
They will be taking on the Comilla Victorians in this match. Unlike the Khulna Titans, the Comilla Victorians have an excellent chance of making it to the playoffs. They have won five out of the eight matches they have played so far and could go right to the top of the table with a win in this match.
With four teams locked with each other on ten points, including the Comilla Victorians, no team would want to lose form at this point in time.
There are not too many things that the Khulna Titans are going to be able to do at this stage of the Bangladesh Premier League. They won one match against the Sylhet Sixers but then lost the return match by 58 runs.
The inconsistency in the batting of the Khulna Titans has cost them very heavily in the BPL. The runs have been very difficult to come and that is largely down to the poor form of Mahmudullah this season. As a senior member of the national side and easily the best Bangladeshi batsman in the Khulna Titans, there were a lot of expectations from Mahmudullah coming into this series.
He has not been able to come close to shouldering the burden of leadership and at this Bangladesh, fans would be worrying about his form approaching the ICC World Cup 2019.
Brendan Taylor and David Wiese helped the Khulna Titans win their last match and these two batsmen are going to be crucial for side once again. Brendan Taylor may not have the big hits in his armory but he is very good at finding the gaps and confident against spin.
Hopefully, David Wiese will get a chance to bat up the order but for some reason, the Khulna Titans reward good batting with a demotion rather than more time in the middle.
Yasir Shah has been strangely ineffective in the BPL while Junaid Khan has also lost his sting. It is a shame for the Khulna Titans that some excellent names in T20 cricket have lost form at the same time.
It is difficult to see them come out of this hole even though they have some very good names in their squad.
BRM Taylor, M Junaid Siddique, Dawid Malan, Nazmul Hossain, Mahmudullah, Ariful Haque, Carlos Brathwaite, D Wiese, Taijul Islam, Shariful Islam, Saddam Hossain.
The Comilla Victorians have been out of action for the last five days and have played one match less than all other sides right now. They have an excellent chance of qualifying for the knockouts with just a couple of more wins. This is one match that the side will be targeting for sure.
Tamim Iqbal has started to play some good innings in the BPL and we really like him as a player to back moving forward. Tamim has been one of the most consistent players for Bangladesh over the last few years and has shown the temperament to score on the big occasions.
The BPL has been Tamim’s stomping ground in the past and he is the one player we think is going to score a lot of runs. Imrul Kayes, Shamsur Rahman, Shahid Afridi, Thisara Perera, and Liam Dawson are all good batsmen.
This collection of players offers a lot of batting depth to the Comilla Victorians. Thisara Perera and Shahid Afridi are two impact players in the middle order that should be used as floaters by the Comilla Victorians.
We don’t think there is a more prolific six-hitter in the BPL than Thisara Perera and Shahid Afridi almost always plays one stellar inning in a tournament.
Of course, Afridi is also one of the best bowlers that are playing for the Comilla Victorians. He is difficult to score off and always in the wickets. With Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan, Liam Dawson, and Thisara Perera in the side, the bowling attack is almost all international.
The Comilla Victorians are peaking very nicely during the most important stage of the Bangladesh Premier League and something will have to go catastrophically wrong for them to lose this match.
Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Shamsur Rahman, SMSK Afridi, Thisara Perera, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mahedi Hasan, Wahab Riaz, M Shahid.
The side winning the toss is likely to want to bat first

The Bangladesh Premier League 2019 match between the Khulna Titans and the Comilla Victorians is going to be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. The weather is predicted to be excellent on match day and we should have a full game in without any interruptions.
Thankfully, the pitch in Chittagong has been very good for batting. It is perhaps the only surface in this edition of the BPL where run scoring has been moderately easy. A score of about 160 should be considered par.
The Comilla Victorians are a much stronger side in the batting department and their bowling is very good as well. It will take an astonishing individual performance from one of the players in the Khulna Titans to be able to win this match.
Back the Comilla Victorians to win.
