Sylhet Super Stars are to host the Barisal Bulls at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka as the two sides clash in the sixth fixture of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League. Sylhet Super Stars v Barisal Bulls betting tips & predictions can be found below.
Both sides are set to be in action on Monday with Sylhet taking on Chittagong and Barisal taking on the Rangpur Riders. This upcoming contest will be the second match for either side in this year’s tournament.
Sylhet are skippered by Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim with Adbur Razzak, Junaid Siddique, Mominul Haque, Nazmul Nossain, and Rubel Hossain also on their roster.
The Super Stars also have some stellar international presence in their midst. Kieron Pollard and Shahid Afridi are their big hitters while England batsman Owais Shah and Brad Hodge are their main pillars in the middle-order.
The side also have a couple of first-rate fast bowlers in Fidel Edwards and Sohail Tanvir with Sri Lankan mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis their trump card with the ball in these conditions.
Chris Gayle is the biggest draw as far as Barisal are concerned. The big Jamaican is the most potent threat in the shortest format of the game as far as the opposition is concerned. He has a proven track record of a string of electrifying performances in the 20-over game. Expect Gayle to make the headlines on the next morning.
The Bulls are skippered by Mahmadullah with Al-Amin Hossain, Taijul Islam and Sohag Gazi some of the more well-known domestic presence. Besides Gayle, the Bulls also have some key internationals in the forms of Kevon Cooper, Mohammad Sami, and Evin Lewis.
Lewis is earmarked to open the batting with Gayle while Cooper has decent experience playing in the sub-continent thanks to his stint in the Indian Premier League. Sami was Pakistan’s best bowler at one point of time in the past and although he is well past it at 34-years of age, his experience could prove to be the key.
