CMV vs FBA Match Preview

The Fortune Barishal team is going into this game after three consecutive victories, including one over Comilla Victorians. They have done a fine job with the ball while restricting their opposition to a smallish total in their last three outings. Fortune Barishal is in great form at the moment and will be right on the case of the more famed Comilla Victorians. The Barishal bowling has primarily been responsible for the bright form displayed by the team in recent games. If they win the toss, they are likely to bowl first.

Some of the consistent wicket-takers for Barishal have been Kyle Mayers and Mohammad Saifuddin. James Fuller and Taijul Islam will support these frontline bowlers. Another bowler doing well is Mehidy Hasan Miraz. He contributes to the team's cause, although he is not bowling his quota of four overs. The Barishal batting lineup boasts some of the better T20 players in Bangladesh, such as Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz. The lower middle order will have finishers such as David Miller and Kyle Mayers.

The Comilla Victorian's batting order was not in great nick in their last encounter against this opposition. They put together just 140 runs and lost eight wickets during the process. But they recovered after the loss, with batters like Towhid Hridoy and Litton Das contributing big scores. Victorians have won a couple of back-to-back BPL titles. They have reached the final again and will be raring to take a shot at the third title in a row. Toss will also play an important role here.

In the first encounter between these two sides, Victorians chased a big target of 162 runs but could not repeat the performance as the Barishal bowlers bowled well in their second encounter. However, Comilla has some top-quality batters in their line-up. Litton Das and Sunil Narine open their innings. They are followed by Johnson Charles and Towhid Hridoy, making a powerful top-order batting. Sunil Narine will be the top bowler to watch out for. Musfiq Hasan and Andre Russell will aid him.
