Both Comilla Victorians and Rangpur Riders have already sealed their spot in the playoffs. This match would bring an opportunity for both teams to climb to the top of the points table.


The last time when the two teams met, Comilla Victorians were blown away by Mashrafe Mortaza's four-wicket haul as their batsmen could manage just 63 runs and lost the match by nine wickets.

Tamim Iqbal continued with his form in the last match and now has more than 300 runs from 11 innings. He would partner Evin Lewis at the top of the order, who made his presence known by smashing a century on his comeback after injury. The team also has the likes of Imrul kayes and Thisara Perera in the middle order.

Shahid Afridi has been doing his bit in both the batting and bowling departments. With the ball, Wahab Riaz and Mahedi Hasan are their cheif weapons.

Rangpur Riders will miss the services of Alex Hales, who has been ruled out of the entire tournament due to injury. With the spots of Chris Gayle, Riley Rossouw and AB de Villiers all but sealed, Ravi Bopara, Benny Howell and Sheldon Cottrell would compete against each other to make the cut.


Rossouw is the highest run-scorer of the tournament and has five half-centuries against his name. He has amassed more than 500 runs from 11 innings. AB de Villiers is also coming fresh off a century. Among the bowlers, Mashrafe Mortaza and Farhad Reza have both picked up 17 wickets each and are looking hungry for more.

 

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

 

Comilla Victorians- Evin Lewis, Tamim Iqbal, Shamsur Rahman, Imrul Kayes, Thisara Perera, Anamul Haque, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosharraf Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Wahab Riaz

Rangpur Riders- Rilee Rossouw, Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Mithun, Mashrafe Mortaza, Nahidul Islam, Farhad Reza, Nazmul Islam, Abul Hasan, Shahidul Islam
