Comilla victorians have received a huge setback in the form of captain Steve Smith who has flown back to Australia for an elbow surgery and would miss the rest of the tournament.

Cricket lovers would also be interested in knowing that the surgery will delay the return of Steve Smith to international cricket.

Chittagong Vikings made a winning start to their Bangladesh Premier League campaign, winning the first match against defending Champions Rangpur Riders by skittling them out for just 98 runs. The Vikings tied their last match against Khulna Titans. Robbie Frylinck then emerged as a hero, batting and bowling for them in the super over and taking them over the line.

Chittagong dropped comeback man Mohammad Ashraful in the last match and replaced him with Yasir Ali who was an instant success and scored a 34-ball 41. Mohammad Shahzad and Cameron Delport will open the innings for the team while Yasir Ali, Mushfiqur Rahim and Sikandar Raza will follow.

Robbie Frylinck has been an absolute find for the team and has been sensational with both bat and ball. Sunzamul Islam and Abu Jayed have also been tidy.

Comilla Victorians will miss Steve Smith but will be buoyed by the return of Thisara Perera who is back from his tour of New Zealand. English spinner Liam Dawson made the cut the last time and impressed with his economical bowling. He will assist the likes of Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mahedi Hasan.
