Comilla Victorians and Rajshahi Kings will be up against each other in the new upcoming clash of the Bangladesh Premier League at Shere Bangla National Stadium. Both the sides will collide for the second time in the tournament. Comilla Victorians won that encounter by five wickets at the same venue when they faced the Kings. Rajshahi Kings would be eyeing to avenge their last defeat in the upcoming contest.

Both the teams are coming back after a victory in their previous games, so they would be high in confidence. Comilla Victorians won their last game against Khulna Titans by three wickets at the Sylhet International Stadium. While Rajshahi Kings defeated the league leaders Dhaka Dynamites by 20 runs in a low-scoring match.

Rajshahi Kings are placed at the fifth position in the points table with six points. They have three wins and three defeats in the whole campaign. On the other hand, Comilla Victorians are currently grabbing the third spot with 8 points. They have won 4 and lost only games out of the six matches they have played this season.
