Rangpur Riders will be facing Barisal Bulls in the 15th match of this BPL season. This is the second match of the second phase of BPL playoffs which will be hosted at Zahur Ahmed CHowdhury Stadium, Chittagong.
The Riders were flying high over their first two emphatic victories until they were brought down to reality by Dhaka Dynamites. Rangpur will try to capitalize on their bowling once again. Their spinners were brilliant against Khulna and restricted them to a BPl record 44 runs. Shahid Afridi, Arafat Sunny and Shohag Gazi were all brilliant with the ball. The bowlers will face an uphill task as the BPL season’s current leading run scorers are from Barisal Bulls. The inform dashing opener Mohammad Shahzad will look for another blistering start for Rangpur. Rangpur are a match behind and a win will mean they will climb to the top of the table. So surely they won’t like to miss this opportunity.
Barisal will be highly upbeat after the moral boosting 4 run win against Rajshahi Kings. They started the campaign with a defeat against Dhaka Dynamites. But they came back from that with two back to back win against Comilla Victorians and Rajshahi. The win take tae them temporarily in the top of the table too. Shahriar Nafees and Mushfiqur Rahim are in a great batting form as both of them lead the run scorers table of BPL 2016. They will try to keep their winning form going and score a big win to jump over Dhaka at the point table.
Both teams batsmen are displaying ruthless batting displays at their recent matches. So we can expect some fireworks display from both sides and hope to see a very entertaining match up.
