Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction BPL- Khulna Titans v Sylhet Sixers
Both Khulna Titans and Sylhet Sixers have not had a great Bangladesh Premier League till now.
On one hand, the Sixers have been able to win just two out of their seven matches and are at the second last place. On the other, the Titans with a solitary victory, are languishing at the bottom of the points table.
However, the Titans have found some batting from recently. They have scored consistently over 180 in the last three matches. Junaid Siddiqui has been good for the team at the top of the order while Brendan Taylor and Mahmudullah have cemented their place in the middle order.
The arrival of South African all-rounder David Wiese has also helped considerably. Wiese scored 40 from 20 balls against Chittagong Vikings and backed it up with an unbeaten 35 off just 15 balls against Rangpur Riders. Their main issue is their bowling. Lasith Malinga was dropped the last time out and Yasir Shah made his first appearance in the league.
Sylhet Sixers would be without captain David Warner for the rest of the tournament who was flown back to Australia. He would be replaced by explosive English opener Jason Roy at the top of the order. Liton Das has found some form as he scored 70 against Rangpur Riders and a quickfire 27 against Dhaka Dynamites. Sabbir Rahman would bat at one down. Nicholas Pooran is their best bet in the middle order.
Taskin Ahmed is the team's highest wicket-taker with 14 wickets while Sandeep Lamichhane might not have dismissed a lot of batsmen but has been very economical. It is expected that Wayne Parnell would replace Mohammad Irfan in the upcoming match.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
Khulna Titans- Al-Amin, Junaid Siddique, Brendan Taylor, Mahmudullah, Najmul Hossain Shanto, David Wiese, Ariful Haque, Yasir Shah, Taijul Islam, Subashis Roy, Junaid Khan
