KNT vs SSR Team Previews
The Khulna Tigers team has done a fair job in the BPL competition. They have recorded four wins from six games and have eight points to their credit. They are currently in fourth place in the points table, two spots ahead of Sylhet Strikers. However, they are going into this game with a couple of losses in their last few games. They will be looking to get their batting order sorted out. Anamul Haque will handle the top order of the Khulna Tigers. Evin Lewis will reenter the field in this game after an injury layoff.
The Khulna bowling attack has plenty of depth, with Raheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Nasum Ahmed, and Mohammad Waseem handling the bowling responsibilities. The Khulna Tigers team played their last game in the competition against Comilla Victorians. The Comilla team batted first to score 149 runs, losing seven wickets from their twenty overs. This average score proved too much for the Khulna Tigers on this slow and low track, and they handed a 34-run victory to the Victorians.<br />
Khulna Tigers Playing 11
Anamul Haque, Evin Lewis, Afif Hossain, Sumon Khan, Habibur Sohan, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Nahidul Islam, Kasun Rajitha, Rubel Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, Mark Deyal.
The Sylhet Strikers team has played eight games so far in the tournament and has recorded just a couple of games and four points. They are lying in the second-last position in the points table, just ahead of Durdanto Dhaka. But despite this poor record in the competition, they are going into this game with a win in their last game. The Sylhet Strikers team had to face the disappointment of Richard Ngarava leaving the team to participate in the ILT20 competition in UAE.
The absence of their star bowler will hurt Sylhet Strikers’ prospects, but he has been replaced by another overseas player, Benny Howell, who is likely to enjoy a return to the side. The Sylhet team has been unable to do full justice to their batting potential. They will have Najmul Hossain Shanto being comfortable in the one-down position in the batting order rather than opening the innings. Ryan Burl and Benny Howell will be handling their middle order.<br />

Mohammad Mithun, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Zakir Hasan, Ariful Haque, Harry Tector, Samit Patel, Ryan Burl, Benny Howell, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Rejaur Rahman Raja, Sunzamul Islam.

KNT vs SSR Betting Tips
Even though the Khulna Tigers team is slated a couple of points above Sylhet Strikers in the points table, the recent trend has not been good for the Khulna outfit. Both their wins in the competition have come against weaker oppositions, and they have struggled against the higher-ranked teams, having greater depth in their batting and bowling departments. The Sylhet Strikers team is going into this game with a win, but they have had a terrible tournament and will be hard-pressed to get another win in this game. We will bet with the Khulna Tigers to win this contest.
