PREVIEW

 

Rangpur Riders will lock horns with Khulna Titans for another epic encounter in the Bangladesh Premier League 2019. Khulna Titans are struggling to find their feet in this tournament since the beginning. They are languishing at the bottom of the table with just two points. Titans have only a solitary win under their belt out of their seven matches played. They lost their last match against the Vikings by 26 runs. They have to start winning their remaining games if they want to stay alive in this tournament.

Rangpur Riders, the reigning champions, have not performed as per their expectations in this season. They have to play aggressive cricket to defend their title. Rider’s big guns have failed to deliver in this campaign, therefore the team is lacking that impactful performance. They are at the fourth spot in the league table, with six points. Having won three games and lost four in their seven outings, Riders need to perform well to get their season back on track.
