PREVIEW

 

We are in the business end of the Bangladesh Premier League where the place for top four is up for grabs. The teams are battling hard to qualify for the next round in the BPL 2019. Khulna Titans will face Comilla Victorians in another crunch contest at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. Both the sides will face off for the second time in this season. Comilla Victorians emerged victorious in that first encounter by three wickets.

Comilla Victorians are currently at the fourth spot in the points table with 10 points. They have won five and lost three games out of their 8 outings. Victorians won their last match against Dhaka Dynamites by 7 runs in a close contest. They would be hoping to carry on their winning run.

On the other hand, Khulna Titans are languishing at the bottom of the table, with just 4 points. They have only managed to win a couple of games and lost 8 matches in the campaign so far. Titans lost their last encounter against the Sixers by 58 runs. They must win every remaining game to stay any chance of qualifying in the next round.
