The Rangpur Rider top the BPL 2019 points table at the moment by virtue of a better net-run-rate when compared to the Victorians and the Kings. The have two more matches to pay and would want to wrap up the league stages with commanding wins and then look ahead.

Meanwhile, for the Rajshahi Kings, the equation is pretty straightforward. With two matches left, they must win them both and win them well enough to push their net-run-rate to the positive. Then again, this may not be good enough for the Kings as the clash for the top-four is as close as it can get with just two points separating the top-five teams.
