After a stellar victory against Fortune Barishal (RAN) in the previous match, the Sylhet Strikers (SYL) will be eyeing to seal another win, when they take on the Rangpur Riders on January 27, at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. They have played some phenomenal cricket so far and are currently at the helm of the table, while the Riders have been inconsistent and are hanging in the middle.
In the previous match, the Nurul Hasan-led side, however, played some brilliant cricket and defeated Chattogram Challengers by 55 runs. Shoaib Malik wreaked havoc with the bat, scoring 75* off 45 deliveries. Azmatullah Omarzai on the other hand, hit 42 runs off 24 deliveries and courtesy of their innings, the Riders posted 179 runs on the board after 20 overs. With the ball, Haris Rauf clinched three wickets while Rakibul Hasan picked up two. This win will definitely boost their confidence but against Sylhet, they need to step up their game as the league leaders are not going to give them any space to dominate.
Sylhet's Najmul Hossain Shanto is in terrific form and once again will be a key player for the team in the upcoming match. However, their other top-order batters failed to perform in the previous match and that needs to change ahead of the business end of the tournament. When it comes to bowling, Rejaur Rahman Raja picked up three wickets, while Mohammad Amir and Tanzim Hasan Sakib picked up two each. If they manage to keep up with the same kind of form, the Strikers can eventually challenge for the prestigious title.
