PREVIEW

 

Dhaka Dynamites are set to host the in-form Comilla Victorians at Sher-e-Bangla National stadium for another high-voltage fixture of Bangladesh Premier League 2019. With the only handful of games left in this season, the race to the playoffs has intensified. All the teams look to make the most of their situations and qualify for the next round. The points table proves top teams are just marginally ahead of each other and only six points separate Rangpur Riders(1st) and Sylhet Sixers(6th).

Comilla Victorians are comfortably placed at the second spot in the points table with 14 points. They are the most consistent team this season with seven wins in ten games along with three defeats. Victorians won their last encounter against the Vikings by 7 wickets (DLS Method) and secured the top spot in the table. They would be eyeing to keep this winning momentum going until the end of the tournament.

On the other hand, Dhaka Dynamites are struggling this season to find consistency in their performance. They started the campaign on a promising note and were sitting at the top of the ladder halfway through the season. But Shakib & Co have failed to capitalize as they find themselves reeling at fifth position in the table. The home side has managed to win 5 games while losing as many in their 10 outings. Dhaka Dynamites lost their last league game against Chittagong Vikings by 11 runs. They would be hoping to perform better in the remaining games to stay alive in the tournament.

Both the giants are colliding for the second time in this season. The previous encounter was won by Comilla Victorians by a narrow margin of 7 runs. Dynamites must be ready to avenge their last defeat and bring their campaign back on track.
