PREVIEW

 

Rangpur Riders are on a roll and they have claimed the top spot back after defeating Dhaka Dynamites. Rajshahi Kings will face Rangpur Riders this time around at Chittagong for another crunch match. Both the sides will meet for the second time in this tournament. Rajshahi Kings won that game by 5 runs and would be hoping to repeat that feat.

Kings are placed at the fifth spot in the points table with 10 points. They have won five games and lost as many in this campaign so far. Rajshahi Kings have won their last game against Vikings in their last match by seven runs. They need to win the remaining games to bring their campaign back on track.

On the other hand, Rangpur Riders are top of the ladder with 12 points in their kitty. They have won six games and lost four in their 12 outings in this tournament. Riders defeated the Dynamites last night in a high scoring match by eight wickets. AB De Villiers scored an unbeaten century to take his side over the line.  They would be eyeing to win five games on the trot heading into this contest.
