Khulna Tigers (KHT) will square off with Rangpur Riders (RAN) at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in match No. 9 of the ongoing BPL 2024 on Friday, January 26.

The Tigers have got off to a fantastic start in BPL 2024 as they are the only unbeaten side so far in the competition, having won both their matches with consummate ease. They started off with a four-wicket win against Chattogram Challengers in Dhaka. The Anamul Haque Bijoy-led side chased down a 122-run target with 10 balls to spare. In their second game, Khulna batted brilliantly and chased down a 188-run target against Fortune Barishal, with two overs and eight wickets in the bank.

Rangpur Riders started with a five-wicket defeat against Barishal as they failed to defend a target of 135. However, Nurul Hasan and Co. bounced back with a four-wicket win against Sylhet Strikers in their last game, chasing down a 121-run target with 10 balls to spare.

Sylhet Stadium Pitch Report

The caravan has arrived in Sylhet for the first time in the 2024 edition of BPL. Last year, eight matches were held at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. Khulna recorded the highest first-innings score of 210 but Comilla Victorians chased it down, with seven wickets and 10 balls to spare. The average first-innings score was 163. Six out of the eight games were won by teams batting second. The pitch is expected to be balanced as there will be enough assistance for batters as well as bowlers. The spinners could play a part, especially in the second innings.

KHT vs RAN Probable Best Performers:

Probable Best Batter: Babar Azam

The former Pakistan captain has been in sensational form in T20 cricket. Babar came into the BPL after scoring three fifties in five T20Is against New Zealand earlier this month. He started his campaign in Bangladesh with a solid 49-ball 56 not out against Sylhet Strikers in Rangpur's previous game. Babar can play the sheer anchor's role to perfection and also change gears when necessary.

Probable Best Bowler: Nahidul Islam

The 30-year-old off-spinner had a fabulous start to the campaign, as he dismissed four out of the top five batters in the Chattogram Challengers line-up and finished with awe-inspiring figures of 4/12 in his four overs. Khulna's second game was a high-scoring affair but Nahidul held his own. The Khulna-born could not pick up a wicket but he conceded just 23 runs in his four-over spell.
