The happiness of registering their first win didn’t last long for the Khulna Titans who lost to the Comilla Victorians on Friday. They opened their account with a 25-run win against the Rajshahi Kings on Wednesday. Against the Victorians, the Mahmudullah-led side made 181 batting first. The way they began, the 200-run mark looked easy to be breached.

However, the last four overs didn’t go in their way as they finished at least 20 runs short. Comilla had a century opening stand but the Khulna Titans fought till the end only to lose in the final over. They will now be up against the Chittagong Vikings who have three wins from four matches they played. The earlier game between Vikings and Titans ended in a Tie with the Chittagong team winning in Super Over.

Injury and Availability Updates after the announcement of the squads:

Yasir Shah joined the Khulna Titans having completed his tour of South Africa for Pakistan.

Power Picks:

Mohammad Shahzad could well turn out to be a brilliant option for the Chittagong Vikings at the top. The Afghanistan player utilizes the field restrictions to excel in the T20 format. The Vikings, who will be playing their first and last game at the Sylhet, could find easy with the bat in the friendly conditions. It won’t be a surprise if Shahzad turns out to be his team’s best batsman in this game.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Robbie Frylinck will be a perfect choice for multiplier roles. The South African’s consistency is worth at least as vice-captain. Junaid Siddique has been consistent at the top for the Khulna Titans and could be picked as captain or vice-captain.
