Comilla Victorians will face the Barisal Bulls at the 32nd match of the BPL 2016 playoffs. It is a clash between two bottom scraper teams. This is the second encounter between these two teams. At their previous meeting the Bulls defeated Victorians with 6 wickets and 9 balls in hand.
Victorians BPL mission is almost over and they have nothing but pride to salvage from this match. They have now lost 7 off their 8 fixtures played. Their batting seems at a loss, either losing early wickets or failing to score enough runs until its too late. Batsmen like Kayes, Liton are yet to see a good day with the bat in this edition of BPL. Their batting order is also fairly disorganized as they seem to shuffle the order every next match. Barring Mashrafe and Tanvir the other bowlers are struggling too. They will also be desperate to see some notion of solace in a victory and salvage something out of this campaign.
From Barisal’s perspective, this is virtually a must win match of them. They have lost five successive matches. They are currently just above Comilla Victorians in the point table. Barisal have six points now, and they have two matches in their hand. Another defeat will be the last nail in the coffin for them. Captain Mushfiqur Rahim will also to try to inspire his team from the front once again.
