Fortune Barishal (FBA) are set to lock horns with Sylhet Strikers (SYL) in match No. 35 of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2024 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Saturday, February 17.

Barishal have done well in the tournament so far, having registered ten points on the back of five wins and four losses from nine games. They started their campaign with three losses from their first four games but have bounced back commendably to win four out of their next five. Tamim Iqbal has led the team from the front and will hope to take one step closer to the playoffs with a win against the Sylhet Strikers.

Sylhet finished runners-up in the 2023 edition of the tournament. However, this year hasn't gone their way so far. Their hopes of reaching the playoffs are hanging by a thread as they are currently at No. 6 on the points table with three wins and six losses from nine games. Mohammad Mithun and Co. have won their last two games and would want to extend their winning streak to stay afloat in the competition.

Probable Best Batter of the match

In the batting department, Fortune Barishal will place their trust in skipper Tamim's capabilities. The experienced opening batter might not have been at his free-flowing best but has certainly played some important knocks for his side. He has scored 273 runs at an average of 30.33 and a strike rate of 121.87 in nine innings. He is coming off a swashbuckling 71-run knock off just 45 balls against Durdanto Dhaka in the last game.

Probable Best Bowler of the match

Khaled Ahmed could be the standout bowler in this game. The right-arm pacer, who has played 14 games for Bangladesh, has been in fine form in the tournament. He has picked up ten wickets from six matches at an average of 18.60 and a strike rate of 12.50. His economy rate (8.92) is on the higher side but his team won't mind it as long as he can keep adding to the wickets column.
