We are reaching the business end of the Bangladesh Premier League for the 2022-23 season. Four teams have already reached the next stage of the competition. One of these four teams is Fortune Barishal. They are currently lying in the 2nd position in the points table. However, they have lost two of their last three games. They will be keen to win this match and build some momentum going into the playoffs. Their opponents in this game are the Khulna Tigers who are out of the competition as they failed to qualify for the playoffs. But they will be keen to play spoilsports and end the season on a high note with a win.

FBA vs KNT Team Previews

Barisal Bulls

In their last match in the competition, Fortune Barishal posted a score of 156 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. They were powered by Mahmudullah who scored 39 runs and Anamul who contributed 42 runs. Their main run-getters this season have been Iftikar Ahmed and Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib is the leading run-getter for Fortune Barishal with 311 runs and Iftikar Ahmed follows him with 296 runs. Other batters that have provided excellent support to these two are Ibrahim Zadran and Anamul Haque. Karim Janat comes in to bat lower down the order to play some attacking shots to finish the innings on a high note.

Fortune Barishal ended up losing their last match by five wickets. Shakib Al Hasan played well in the match bowling a top spell of 4-0-18-2. Some of their fast bowlers such as Chamika De Silva, Khaled Ahmed, Karim Janat, and Muhammad Wasim Jr have been some of the major contributors to the game. Others that provided great support to these frontline bowlers have been Iftikar Ahmed, S Islam, and Mehidy Hasan. The skipper Shakib Al Hasan is no mean bowler himself and will lead the spin attack.

Some of the key players for Fortune Barishal have been Iftikar Ahmed, Karim Janat, and Shakib Al Hasan. Some quality all-rounders are playing in this game for Fortune Barishal apart from their skipper Shakib Al Hasan. Chaturanga de Silva, Fazie Mahmud, Karim Janat, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Mohammad Wasim are some of them. Fortune Barishal had to take a defeat at the hands of Dhaka Dominators in their last match. It was an unexpected loss as the much-maligned Dhaka Dominators chased down the target set by the Fortune Barishal outfit in 18.5 overs with 5 wickets to spare.

Barisal Bulls Playing 11

Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Anamul Haque, Ebadot Hossain, Salman Hossain, Khaled Ahmed, Iftikhar Ahmed, Ibrahim Zadran, Karim Janat, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Fazle Mahmud.

Khulna Tigers

In their last game in the competition, Khulna Tigers posted a huge total on the board of 210 for 2. Their batters at the top of the order Shai Hope and Tamim Iqbal scored 91 and 95 runs respectively. These super innings led them to post a massive total on the board in the match. But all-in-all Azam Khan has been the aggressor in the competition scoring 226 runs in the tournament for them at a top strike rate of 160. But the Khulna Tigers' batting overall has lacked consistency and has relied basically on a few batters to do the bulk of the scoring.

After setting up a massive total on the board, the Khulna Tigers' bowlers failed to defend this target. They went down in the match by 7 wickets. Their only bowler that could trouble the opposing batters was Nasum Ahmed. He returned with the figures of 4-0-19-1 and bowled pretty economically. Because it was a high-scoring affair this miserly effort from the bowler was exceptional. Other key bowlers for Khulna Tigers in this match are Nahidul Islam, Ahmad Butt, and Mohammad Saifuddin.

Some of the key players for the Khulna Tigers in this encounter will be Tamim Iqbal, Azam Khan, and Nasum Ahmed. The bowling performance of the Khulna Tigers leaves a lot to be desired. Their batters did a great job putting an imposing total on the board. But even then, the Khulna bowlers failed miserably to pick wickets as Comilla Victorians took their side to a win with 10 balls to spare. Johnson Charles hammered a hundred for Comilla Victorians with a 107 runs effort from just 56 balls with 11 sixes. Together with Mohammad Rizwan they beat the Khulna bowlers to a pulp and took their side to an improbable win.

Khulna Tigers Playing 11

Shai Hope, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Yasir Ali , Andy Balbirne, Mark Deyal, Hasan Murad, Paul Van Meekeren, Nahidul Islam, Nasum Ahmed, Shafiqul Islam.

FBA vs KNT Toss Prediction

It is expected that the Shere Bangla pitch will slow down as the game progresses and will offer assistance to the spinners. So, we expect the skipper that wins the toss to bat first on this track.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

In the last game played at this venue, all 20 wickets fell for a combined total of 200 runs. None of the batters could get going on this pitch. We expect an at-par score on the track to be close to 140 to 160 runs. It is a slow wicket and playing your shots is always a little difficult. There is a lot of help in the track for the spinners. But as the game progresses the wicket might start offering assistance to the batters.

Dhaka will likely have hot and humid weather conditions for this game. We can expect temperatures in the region of 28 degrees for this game. The day will be partly sunny and partly clouded. We will get moderate north-westerly winds during the game and there are no chances of rain coming down during the match.

FBA vs KNT Betting Tips

Khulna Tigers have been extremely inconsistent during this season. They were unable to defend a massive total in their last fixture and have failed to chase scores in the excess of 120 runs so far. The batting order relies heavily on Tamim Iqbal and Azam Khan to do most of the scoring. The Fortune Barishal team also took a couple of losses in their last 3 matches but they are a much better overall team and will be looking to gather some winning momentum with this match. We will bet with Fortune Barishal to win this match.
