After the the North Bengal derby BPL 2016 will feature two North Bengal rivals meeting. Top of the table Khulna Titans are facing Barisal Bulls at the 2nd match of the phase 3 of the play offs.
Khulna have recovered massively after the debacle against Rangpur Riders. They have won 4 consecutive matches in a row and currently at the 3nd position. Their pace spearheads, Shafiul Islam and Junaid Khan are in a spledid form. Mahmudullah is also leading the team from the front with three amazing match winning performances. Surely that will give them a huge confidence boost and toughen up their nerves for any pressure moments ahead.
After a good run, Barisal Bulls seem to lose their momentum. They have lost back to back matches against Rangpur Riders and Khulna Titans and in their last match, suffered a devastating defeat against the Vikings. Mushfiqur Rahim will be eyeing to regain the rhythm of the team once again. Against Vikings, Barisal bowlers were not quite up to the task. And their batsmen could not finish the match against Khulna. This time, they will try to make the balance.
