Rangpur Riders vs Rajshahi Kings: Preview
RR got a good start in the tournament, and it is winning games regularly. The only concern for them is their form which hasn’t been consistent so far. They have come here after losing last two matches in a row. Now, the contest has become even more important, and winning is necessary at this point.
Apart from their form, this game against Kings is going to be the back to back match for Riders. They played their last game on Sunday against Chittagong Vikings. The fatigue problem may come into play.
The top order batting lineup of Riders is strong as it includes M Shahzad, S Sarkar, and M Mithun. They will be required to score more runs. They haven’t been consistently scoring big. On the bowling front, S Afridi has been decent, but A Ali will be needed to pick some quick wickets to paralyze the opponents.
On the Kings, they also have some good batsmen, and the list includes U Akmal, D Sammy, S Patel, and S Rahman. Riders can’t take chances by letting these batsmen open their arms. Unlike RR, Kings have won all the last three games in a row. So, they have got confidence and momentum which they will like to carry forward.
When both the teams encountered each other, Kings won by 12 runs. All the players were good in all the departments. However, the Kings know that Riders will do anything to take revenge and bounce back in the tournament. If it happens, they will at least move to the second spot in the BPL 2016 points table.
Rangpur Riders vs Rajshahi Kings: Prediction
There is not much difference between the two teams. The side who plays well in all the departments consistently will win the game.
RK to win.
