Pitch Report

In the last game played at this venue, all 20 wickets fell for a combined total of 200 runs. None of the batters could get going on this pitch. We expect an at-par score on the track to be close to 140 to 160 runs. It is a slow wicket and playing your shots is always a little difficult. There is a lot of help in the track for the spinners. But as the game progresses the wicket might start offering assistance to the batters.

Dream11 Prediction

Khulna Tigers have been extremely inconsistent during this season. They were unable to defend a massive total in their last fixture and have failed to chase scores in the excess of 120 runs so far. The batting order relies heavily on Tamim Iqbal and Azam Khan to do most of the scoring. The Fortune Barishal team also took a couple of losses in their last 3 matches but they are a much better overall team and will be looking to gather some winning momentum with this match. We will bet with Fortune Barishal to win this match.
