CMV vs KNT Team Previews

Comilla Victorians

Comilla Victorians made a disastrous start to their campaign in this year's Bangladesh Premier League. They lost 3 games on the trot but later they recovered from a nigh impossible situation by winning four games in a row and steadily making their way up the points table. They are going into this game with a couple of back-to-back victories against Dhaka Dominators. The last of these wins came on 23rd January at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. After batting first, the Comilla Victorians scored 164 runs for the loss of 6 wickets.

The Victorians later went on to restrict the Dhaka Dominators to 104 runs for the loss of 9 wickets. The batting charge for Comilla Victorians is being led by Litton Das this year. He has scored 180 runs from 7 games at a strike rate of 140.62. Comilla Victorians skipper Imrul Kayes has put together 159 runs from seven matches at a strike rate of 131.40. Khushdil Shah is another batter that has scored 151 runs from 6 innings at a strike rate of 171.59. But the real contribution the Victorians will be hoping for will be from Mohammad Rizwan who has had some quiet outings.

As far as the bowling department is concerned, the left-arm spinner for Comilla, Tanvir Islam has been the most consistent performer for the side. He has picked up 8 scalps at an economy rate of 5.25. The bowling attack of the team has been bolstered by the arrival of Naseem Shah. It has brought a lot of potency to the bowling attack. This youthful Pakistani fast bowler made a good impression in the first match of the season with a spell of 4 wickets for just 12 runs against Dhaka Dominators.

Khulna Tigers

The opportunity of moving up the table took a serious back turn for the Khulna Tigers in their last game when they lost to Dhaka Dominators who are placed right at the bottom of the points table. In a low-scoring game, they put up a good bowling performance and managed to bowl out the Dhaka outfit for 108 runs. This was on a 2-paced Shere Bangla National Stadium pitch. But their batting was terrible and the entire side was bowled out for a paltry score of 84 runs. Batting has gradually become a big headache for Khulna Tigers.

Apart from Azam Khand and Tamim Iqbal who have scored 180 runs and 183 runs from 5 and 6 innings respectively, none of the other batsmen have appeared to get going. Tamim Iqbal has scored the runs with a strike rate of 112.26 and Azam Khan has scored his runs at a strike rate of 151.26. Another batter that is showing a lot of promise is Mahmudul Hasan Joy. He has played 3 games but has displayed a lot of promise. He managed 59 runs from 44 balls against Chattogram Challengers.

This inning from Joy was instrumental in helping the team chase down a score of 158 runs. Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz is the top wicket-taker for Khulna Tigers this year. He has picked up 12 victims from 6 matches at an economy rate of 6.53. Another bowler that is doing a good job for Khulna is Mohammad Saifuddin with 7 wickets at an economy rate of 7.54. Then there is Nasum Ahmed who is the left-arm spinner for Khulna who has bagged 5 wickets from 6 matches at 5.80. Nasum has provided great support to the team with the new ball. He also picked up a 3-wicket haul for 12 runs in the game against Dhaka Dominators.

Pitch and Conditions

The wicket on offer at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet is a good one for the batsmen. However, this track will offer a lot of help to the opponent spinners. The batsmen will not be able to just hit through the line. They will have to initially get used to the pace of the track. Spinners might trouble the batters even with the new ball. The weather conditions at the Sylhet venue will be pleasant and warm during the game. There haven’t been any matches played at this venue so far in this sector of BPL. The average first innings total at this venue is 165 runs. However, the largest first innings total scored at this venue is 214 runs for the loss of 4 wickets by Chattogram Challengers. Another interesting stat is, scores above 170 runs have been posted on 11 occasions this year out of 26 games. The side batting first at this venue should look to put together a score of 170 runs on the board.

CMV vs KNT Betting Tips

In the last 5 games played between these two teams, Victorians have managed to win 3 matches while the Khulna outfit has won 2. It is for the first time these two teams will clash during the season. Comilla Victorians have a lot better balance to their side than compared to the Khulna Tigers. But the Tigers have the winning momentum with them at the moment. In addition to that, they have witnessed the arrival of fast bowler Naseem shah making the bowling attack lot more dangerous. The Khulna Tigers' batting has struggled so the bowlers will have to provide something extra to get past the Comilla Victorians. All-in-all we expect Comilla Victorians to win this game.
