KNT vs RRR Team Previews
The Khulna Tigers had an excellent start to their campaign as they won each of their first 4 matches. However, their form has seen a slight dip in the last week as they have lost their last 3 matches. As a result, the team has dropped out of the top 4.
Anamul Haque has been in excellent form at the top of the order and has scored 3 half-centuries in 7 innings. However, the other batsmen in the top and middle order haven’t been that consistent in their performances. The likes of Evin Lewis, Afif Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, and Habibur Rahman Sohan have got some good starts but have failed to convert them into big innings.
Kasun Rajitha and Rubel Hossain will lead the attack with the new ball. The duo went wicketless in the last match and will hope to bowl a better line and length here. Mark Deyal was in good form, picking up 3 wickets, and will feature in the spin department along with Nahidul Islam and Nasum Ahmed.

The batsmen have done an excellent job for the Rangpur Riders. Babar Azam is the leading run-scorer for them with 251 runs. He has received good support from the likes of Rony Talukdar, Nurul Hasan, and Shamim Hossain. Reeza Hendricks, who was playing his first match of the season on Saturday, scored an excellent half-century.
The Rangpur Riders are also home to some quality all-rounders including Shakib Al-Hasan, James Neesham, and Azmatullah Omarzai who have played an important role in the team’s success. Mahedi Hasan is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 12 wickets and will lead the spin attack, while Hasan Mahmud and Ashiqur Zaman will feature in the seam department.

KNT vs RRR Betting Tips
We are backing the Rangpur Riders to win this match. They have been clinical in their performance this season and have hardly put a foot wrong. On the other hand, the Khulna Tigers haven’t been in the best of forms of late and are likely to find it difficult to bounce back.
Bet on the Rangpur Riders to win.
Bonus Cricket Bets
The Rangpur Riders have won 4 tosses in their 8 outings, while the Khulna Tigers have won just 3 out of their 7. We are therefore backing the Riders to win the toss.
Anamul Haque has been in excellent form this season. He has scored 228 runs at an average of 57.00 and is the top run-getter for his team. We are therefore backing him to be the best batsman for the Khulna Tigers.
Mahedi Hasan is the best bowler for Rangpur this season and has picked up 12 wickets. He has picked up at least 2 wickets in 5 of his last 7 innings and we think he will bowl another good spell here.
