KNT vs RRR Team Previews

Khulna Tigers

The Khulna Tigers outfit would never have expected to get a start like this to their season. After being at the receiving end of three consecutive defeats, the Tigers are lying in second last position in the points table at the moment. The real woes for the Khulna Tigers lie at the top of the order. Their openers have scored 2,5, and 11 in the three outings they had before falling victim to the opponent's bowling attack. Their openers failed to provide a good start in all their three games and so their batting appears to be fragile at the moment.

Thus far in the season, the Khulna Tigers team has experimented with as many as 3 players namely Tamim Iqbal, Sharjeel Khan, and Habibur Rahman Sohan. However, none of these players managed to provide the required impetus to the Khulna innings that they were hoping for. Habibur Rahman Sohan and Sharjeet Khan could manage just 10 and 24 runs respectively this season. Even the established pro, Tamim Iqbal could manage just a single-digit score in his couple of appearances. He scored a 40 in the other game.

In their last 5 head-to-head meetings against Rangpur Riders, the Khulna Tigers' scores for the first wicket went like 2, 23, 24, 5, and 90 runs.
