The result of the match between Chittagong Vikings and Sylhet Sixers will be inconsequential as Chittagong Vikings, after beating Dhaka Dynamites in the last match,  have already qualified for the playoffs.


As for Sylhet Sixers, they are currently at the sixth spot in the points table and will not be able to qualify further. That being said, the last time Vikings met Sixers, the latter won the match by five runs, on the back of explosive batting performances from David Warner and Nicholas Pooran while Taskin Ahmed starred with a four-wicket haul.

The Vikings have been hit by the absence of all-rounder Robbie Frylinck who is currently injured. In the batting department, Mushfiqur Rahim slammed another 40 in the last match and is now the third-highest scorer of the tournament.


The inclusion of Cameron Delport has brought good dividends as he has crossed 200 runs in a short time. Delport will open the batting along with Mohammad Shahzad while Yasir Ali is another batsman to watch out for. With Frylinck injured, Abu Jayed has taken up the leadership of the bowling attack and now has 18 wickets while Khaled Ahmed has 14.

Sylhet Sixers are looking short of fizz and failed to defend 190 against Rajshahi Kings. Nicholas Pooran is their best bet with the bat while Taskin Ahmed and Sohail Tanvir are the premium bowlers.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.

 

Chittagong Vikings- Mohammad Shahzad, Cameron Delport, Yasir Ali, Sikandar Raza, Mushfiqur Rahim, Dasun Shanaka, Mosaddek Hossain, Nayeem Hasan, Nazmul Hossain Milon, Abu Jayed, Khaled Ahmed

Sylhet Sixers- Liton Das, Jason Roy, Sabbir Rahman, Afif Hossain, Nicolas Pooran, Alok Kapali, Nasir Hossain, Mohammad Nawaz, Sohail Tanvir, Taskin Ahmed, Nabil Samad
