PREVIEW

 

Chittagong Vikings are set to host the defending champions, Rangpur Riders at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. We can expect a fierce battle between two evenly balanced sides. Both the sides will meet each other for the second time in this season after the campaign opener. The home side emerged out victorious in that contest and defeated the Riders by three wickets.

The reigning champions would be eyeing to avenge their defeat from the opening match. Rangpur Riders have to outplay a strong lineup who are consistently performing in this season. The Riders are placed at the fourth spot in the points table with 8 points. They have won 4 matches and lost as many so far in this tournament.

Chittagong Vikings are currently at the top of the table along with 12 points. They have only lost a solitary match in this season and won six out of their seven league games. Vikings look clear favourites to lift the title this time around. Both the sides are capable to upset each other on their given day.
