Chittagong Vikings, who defeated the defending champions Rangpur Riders in the opening game of the season, will be in the action after three days. The Mushfiqur Rahim-led side exploited the conditions to run through the Rangpur’s batting lineup. Once again, they will be hoping to do the same with the ball and put on a much better performance with the bat. The Vikings will be up against the Sylhet Sixers in their second game of the season on Wednesday.

The Sylhet franchise didn’t have the best of starts to the campaigns as they lost a close game against the Comilla Victorians on Sunday. The David Warner-led team didn’t put on a great effort with the bat in their first match. A late blitz from Nicholas Pooran played a crucial part in taking the Sixers to 127/8 in 20 overs. Their bowlers put on an impressive effort to defend the low score but in vain with veteran Shahid Afridi finishing off with a few massive hits in the end.

Power Picks:

Nicholas Pooran has been in the limelight thanks to a breezy fifty against India in the T20I series followed by brilliant performances with the Northern Warriors in the T10 League. The keeper-batsman’s dashing exploits are helping him to succeed in the shorter formats of the game.
