Comilla victorians are missing the services of captain Steve Smith but have buckled down and won both of their last two matches.

Rajshahi Kings have come up with mixed performances with three wins and three losses. Interestingly, they are the only team to beat table-toppers Dhaka Dynamites. The two teams have met before when Comilla Victorians beat Rajshahi Kings courtesy of Shahid Afridi's bowling figures of 3-10 and some explosive batting.

In the absence of Steve Smith, the four overseas players to play for Comilla Victorians are Shahid Afridi, Liam Dawson, Wahab Riaz and Thisara Perera. Perera has recently joined the team and has become an integral part of it. Opener Tamim Iqbal recently found form with a well made 42-ball 73. He was well assisted by Anamul Haque who scored 40.

Their bowling has been quite good. Shahid Afridi has picked up eight wickets while Mohammad Saifuddin has nine. Wahab Riaz has also picked up five wickets in the two matches that he has played till now.

Captain Mehidy Hasan Miraz has promoted himself to the top of the batting lineup. After some good performances initially, he has not been able to click. Dutch all-rounder Ryan ten Doeschate has stablished himself in the middle order. Wth the ball, Arafat Sunny, Mohammed Sami and Mustafizur Rahman would be the main threats.

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