Comilla Victorians vs Rajshahi Kings: Preview
It is expected to be an interesting match as both the sides have been playing very well in the tournament till now. Some close finishes have been witnessed. Thus, both the teams will try to keep up the winning momentum while moving forward in the series. The first match will help in deciding the playing xi.
The Rajshahi side hasn’t been consistent this year. R Kings lost their first game in this edition of BPL against Khulna Titans (KT), but won against the BPL 2016 points table topper Dhaka Dynamites (DD). The uneven form of RK continued, and they lost to Barisal Bulls (BB) by 4 runs.
In their last game, Darren Sammy led the team and lost to Chittagong Vikings (CHV). After the overall result, the team is standing at number 6 in the 2016 BPL points table. They are followed by next opponents CV. The RK side will hope to bounce back and win the game by showing an all-around show.Comilla Victorians vs Rajshahi Kings
On the other hand, CV has played a match more than Sammy’s RK. CV hasn’t got a single victory in all what they have played so far. They played their first game, and it was against CHV and lost by 29 runs. The title defenders are disappointing the audience since then.
The team led by Mashrafe Mortaza hasn’t been performing well in the limited overs. They have lost easy matches, and it is the high time for them to lift up their performance to evade further embarrassment.
RK lost big against CHV while CV hasn’t won a single game in the group stages. Based on the aggressive style of the captaincy of Mortaza, he will want to win over RK to mark their first win.
On the other side, RK has shown inconsistency so far and will be expecting another dull show from their opposition to get a raise in the points table.
The shortest form of cricket, twenty20 (T20) is the most difficult one to maintain consistency within. Thus, anything can happen in the match. We can expect a serious game as both the sides is looking for the must needed a victory.
