Last season’s champion Comilla Victorians will face new franchise of this BPL 2016 Khulna Titans at the second match of the matchday 7.
Defending champions Victorians are facing a tough time in this BPL edition, losing the 2 matches they have played. They have yet to make a mark on the point table. Though they have a formidable bowling attack comprised of tigers captain Mashrafe, veteran Mohammad Sharif, Imad Wasim and Sohail Tanvir. But they have failed to stop the batting aggression from the opponents at both matches. They will look for runs from the bats of the in form batsmen of their team currently – Nazmul Shanto and Marlon Samuels. Local big names like Imrul Kayes and Liton Das are still to show their potentials for Victorians this BPL. If they want to win their key batsmen have to show more mettle against the Titans.
Khulna have won two matches this BPL and bothe were last moment nail biters. Both matches were slipping out of their grips while captain Mahmudullah stepped up at the last over to claim 3 wickets to win them both matches. Khulna’s batting have been worrisome on the 3 occasions they have played. Especially at their second match when they were embarrassingly bowled out for only 44. Riki Wessels, Mahmudullah, Alok Kapali will have to step up if they want to contest for a win. Last BL seasons top wicket t Kevon Ccoper is back for the Titans which is a good sign for them. Junaid Khan has been doing well but Mahmudullah has been the pick off the cherry. Maybe he can bail the Titans out yet again.
Whatever happens we will look for an exciting encounter for sure.
