The Comilla Victorians are to take on the Sylhet Super Stars at the MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong in the 14th fixture of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League on Monday. Comilla Victorians v Sylhet Super Stars betting tips & predictions can be found below.
The Victorians are currently leading the charts in the league with six points from four matches this season. They also have a very solid net-run-rate statistic which is already much higher than their competition. The Super Stars are at the bottom of the standings with no points to show from four matches thus far.
While Comilla were victorious in their last fixture against the Rangpur Riders, Sylhet were beaten by the Dhaka Dynamites on Friday, losing by 34 runs.
Batting first on the occasion, Dhaka went on to put up 166 runs on the score-board with Kumar Sangakkara leading the way with 75 runs off 56 deliveries. The former Sri Lankan skipper was in sublime touch and was timing the ball superbly on the occasion. He had decent support from Nasir Hossain with the rest of the batsmen unable to assert themselves on a challenging pitch.
Sylhet made a slow start to the chase with Dilshan Munaweera and Joshua Cobb opening the batting. Mosharraf Hossain cleaned up both Cobb and Mominul Haque in successive overs following Munaweera’s departure. Mushfiqur Rahim and Nurul Hasan put up some resistance but it was not enough as they were overpowered by a very good bowling performance from Dhaka.
In the other match, Nuwan Kulasekara’s four wickets had limited the Rangpur Riders to 82 runs batting first. Mohammad Mithin and Saqlain Sajib were the only two batsmen who went on to score in double figures as the Riders struggled to adapt to the wicket.
Comilla had no such problems as Imrul Kayes and Marlon Samuels guided them to a win inside the 12th over of the match. Samuels scored 42 off 24 deliveries as he backed his abilities and attacked the bowling. Kayes held on to the other end and rotated the strike well to ensure a big win for the Victorians.
The designated home side for this upcoming game are coming into this game full of confidence. They have momentum on their side and have shown that they are more than capable of giving their opponents a run for their money.
On the other hand, we have a side which is utterly short of confidence. They need to win this upcoming game to start with if they are to make something of their season. They have some talented players and it is only a matter of time before one or two of them come up with a match-winning contribution.
