FBA vs KNT Match Prediction - Feb 10, 2023

The Fortune Barishal will be aiming to finish in the top 2 on the points table as they face the Khulna Tigers for their last match in the group stage of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League.

Barishal has already defeated the Khulna Tigers earlier this season and will be hoping to do so again, while the Khulna Tigers will be hoping to end their campaign with heads held high by winning their last match of the season. 


FBA vs KNT Team Previews

Barisal Bulls

Fortune Barishal has one of the strongest squads among all the teams in the tournament and at one point was dominating the points table. However, their form has taken a slight dip in the last couple of weeks as they have lost 3 of their last 5 matches. We still believe the team has a good chance of bouncing back ahead of the knockout stages as they face a deflated Khulna Tigers.

Fortune Barishal will be once again banking on Anamul Haque to give them a good start. He is likely to be joined by Fazle Mahmud at the top of the order. Barishal has a strong middle order, thanks to the presence of Mahmudullah and Iftikhar Ahmed, as well as all-rounders including Shakib Al-Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Karim Janat. Shakib has once again proved to be Barishal’s biggest asset, scoring 353 runs and picking up 8 wickets.

Mohammad Wasim Jr. and Ebadot Hossain will lead the pace attack, while Shakib Al Hasan, Chaturanga de Silva, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will be seen in action during the middle overs.

Khulna Tigers

The Khulna Tigers will be pretty disappointed with their performance this season. They have managed to win just 2 of the 11 matches that they have played so far, and are currently sitting at the bottom of the points table. 

Tamim Iqbal has by far been the best performer with the bat for the Tigers this season, scoring 302 runs at an average of 33.55. Azam Khan and Shai Hope have provided him with good support at the top of the order. However, the middle-order batsmen, including Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Yasir Ali, and Andrew Balbirnie have struggled to score consistently.

The team is sorely missing the services of Wahab Riaz, who has been their leading wicket-taker for the season. In his absence, Mohammad Saifuddin and Paul van Meekeren will shoulder the new ball duties. Nahidul Islam has bowled well to scalp 11 wickets but has received little support from Nasum Ahmed or Hasan Murad. With no chance of making it to the next stage.

Khulna Tigers have nothing but pride to play for.

Pitch and Conditions

The Sher E Bangla Stadium has hosted quite a few matches during the last week and the surface has become a bit uneven, making it difficult to score for the batsmen. Anything over 150 can be pretty difficult to chase here. Since the match will be played under lights, dew will make it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball during the second innings.

The weather is expected to be clear with temperatures ranging from 22-25 degrees Celsius. 


FBA vs KNT Betting Tips

A look at the form of both teams makes it amply clear that the only team to back here is Fortune Barishal. They have a more balanced squad and the batsmen are in good form. On the other hand, the Khulna Tigers have been underwhelming in their performance and are unlikely to bounce back.

Bet on Fortune Barishal to win.
