Sylhet Sixers vs Comilla Victorians
Sylhet Sixers who are placed 6th on the points table take on Comilla Victorians who are placed 4th. Comilla Victorians have won 2 matches while the Sixers have just won a single game in the tournament so far.
Let us find out the story that has panned out so far in the BPL 2019
Chasing targets has been difficult:
Only three teams Chittagong Vikings, Comilla Victorians and Rajshahi Kings have been able to chase down targets in the current BPL 2019 season so far. Chittagong Vikings stand tall among these teams winning three matches while chasing.
The only reason why Chittagong Vikings have been successful – because their middle order has contributed a lot of runs and at a rapid pace. The likes of Mushfiqur Rahim, Robbie Frylink have contributed a lot of runs when the team has won.
In the above graph, we have included only the teams who have chased targets above 100 in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League. There are teams who have chased targets of 63, 67 so we have included them in our graph
The graph clearly shows the real picture to why Chittagong Vikings are placed 2nd in the points table.
Left Arm orthodox bowlers have the best wicket taking ability
Among the spinners, left-arm orthodox had the best wicket taking ability so far in the tournament.
Sylhet international stadium will host its debut match in the Bangladesh Premier League. Last time a t20 international match was played here West Indies chased down a target of 130 in 10 overs but don’t get fooled by predicting this to a batting paradise.
Sylhet Sixers Squad:
Alok Kapali, Sohail Tanvir, Andre Fletcher, David Warner, Mohammed Irfan, Nassir Hossain, Gulbuddin Naib, Sabbir Rahman, Nabil Samad, Al-Amin Hossain, Litton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Nicholas Pooran, Fabien Allen, Mehdi Hasan Rana, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ebadat Hossain, Patrick Brown, Towhid Rhidoy
Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Liam Dawson, Shahid Afridi, Mohammed Saiffudin, Thisera Perera, Mahedi Hasan, Zia Ur Rahman, Abu Haider, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Shahid, Shamsur Rahman, Sanjit Saha, Aamer Yamin
Top Fantasy Picks (Sylhet Sixers vs Comilla Victoria)
Opening an issue for Sylhet Sixers:
Sylhet Sixers have won just a single game defending a total of 168 by a whisker. If they have to surge up the ladder their opening order needs to score runs.
Therefore taking top order batsmen of Sylhet sixers will be a risk. Although opening batsmen of Sylhet Sixers David Warner is a fine T20 player but barring his knock of 59 he has struggled with the bat.
Comilla Victorians have received a major blow because their captain Steve Smith is out of BPL due to an elbow injury.
Nicholas Pooran scored 70 runs in the last match but in a losing cause. He is a good pick given that he scores quick runs coming at number 6.
Taskin Ahmed has performed well with the ball in the limited opportunities he’s got. One major reason why he’s in the top 5 in the wicket-takers.
The graph clearly shows Mohammed Saifuddin and Taskin Ahmed to be the top picks in the fast bowler’s category.
Sandip Lamichhane was the best bowler in the Big Bash League but he is yet to make an impact in the Bangladesh Premier League. He is a top T20 bowler and dropping him wouldn’t be a great move.
Thisara Perera lit up the BPL in his very first match by scoring an unbeaten 74 which included 8 sixes. His recent performance in the international level also makes him the top all-rounder in the fantasy team.
In the wicket keeper’s category, Liton Das will be a good option over Anamul Haque because of his experience.
