Sylhet Sixers will host Comilla Victorians at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. Both the teams will go head-to-head for the second time in this campaign. Comilla Victorians came out on top in that encounter and won that game by 4 wickets.  Both the teams would be eyeing to win after having lost their last match.

Sylhet Sixers have only managed to win one game and lost one out of their three games. The host finds themselves at the second last spot in the points table. After tasting defeat in their opening match by the hands of Comilla Victorians, they won a thriller against Chittagong Vikings by 5 runs. Dhaka Dynamites put them on back-foot yet again after beating them in their last match.

Comilla Victorians, on the other hand, have had quite a contradictory season. They are at the fourth position in the points table. They lost to Rangpur Riders by a huge margin of 9 wickets, after defeating Sylhet Sixers in their opening match. The Victorians however, came back in style with a 5 wickets victory against  Rajshahi Kings. But their last defeat against Vikings have put them back to where they started in the table.

We will witness another epic encounter in the Bangladesh Premier League as both the sides will be desperate to get another win.
