Rangpur Riders and Khulna Titans will try to keep their winning momentum today, but after their encounter, one team is going to face their first defeat.
Khulna defeated Rajshahi in a nail biting match yesterday. They were on the backfoot on most of the time of the match. But captain Mahmudullah bowled a brilliant last over to clinch a thrilling 3 run win. Khulna underperformed a bit with their bat. They will certainly try to improve that. Their bowlers were nevertheless quite up the task.
In the post match press conference, Mahmudullah said he has his faith on his players. And he believes his team can go all the way.
Rangpur started their campaign in emphatic fashion yesterday by thumping Chittagong Vikings by 9 wickets. Their bowlers did a brilliant job to restrict Chittagong under 130. Sohag Gazi and Richard Gleesoin gave early breakthroughs. Arafat Sunny, Shahid Afridi and Rubel Hossain also did their job quite well.
Souyma Sarkar and Mohammad Shahzad gave Rangpur a blistering start. Shahzad made a devastating unbeaten 80 of 52 balls. He will try to replicate the havoc today too. Soumya showed some glimpse of his old form, he will try to carry his innings a bit more this time.
