PREVIEW

Sylhet Sixers are set to host the defending champions Rangpur Riders at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. The Sixers lost their last game against Dhaka Dynamites by 6 wickets. This will be the second last match in Sylhet before the tournament shifts back to Dhaka for the remaining fixtures.

This will the final game for David Warner in the BPL before he heads back home on Monday following his elbow injury. Rangpur Riders, on the contrary, will be ecstatic with the arrival of AB de Villiers. He is expected to feature in the upcoming match against Sylhet Sixers. Both the teams have the same figures at this stage, 2 wins and 4 defeats out of their 6 league games. Riders are placed at fifth while Sixers finds themselves at sixth position in the points table due to poor net run rate.

Sylhet Sixers would be hoping to defeat the table toppers, just like they did last time when they won that game against Riders by 27 runs. They posted a mammoth score of 187 runs after being put into bat first. Rangpur Riders would be eyeing to avenge that defeat in which they ended with 27 runs short.
