PREVIEW

 

Dhaka Dynamites are set to host Khulna Titans for the final league game in the Bangladesh Premier League 2019. The playoffs will commence after this final leg in the season 6 of BPL. Dhaka Dynamites have to win this crucial game to qualify for the next round. Khulna Titans, who had a terrible campaign themselves, will be looking to spoil Dynamite’s party.  Both the sides will take on each other for the second time at the same venue. Dynamites thrashed the Titans by 105 runs in that previous encounter.

Dhaka Dynamites are currently hanging in the contention to qualify for the playoffs. They have lost five matches on the trot and would be hoping their campaign back on track. Every game is a knockout for them from now on for the home side. They have won five games while lost six in their 11 outings. Dynamites have to step-up in this do-or-die game to make it into the last four.

Khulna Titans had a forgettable season in the BPL 2019 as they are languishing at the bottom of the table. They could only manage to secure 4 points in 11 league games this season. The Titans have won a couple of games so far while lost 9 matches in the process. Khulna Titans will play for pride and would be hoping to end the campaign on a winning note.
