Cumilla Warriors vs Khulna Tigers: BPL 2019 Match Prediction

The 40th match of the BPL 2019-20 will be played between Cumilla Warriors and Khulna Tigers on Friday.

Cumilla Warriors are still in the race to secure a top 4 spot and will be hoping for a big win as net run rate will be a deciding factor for a SF spot if they win the match.

Khulna Tigers will be riding high on confidence after securing a win over the Warriors in the last outing and will be hoping to secure a SF spot with a win.

Khulna Tigers registered 34 runs to win over Cumilla Warriors when they faced each other last Wednesday.

Cumilla Warriors performance in BPL 2019-20:

Sabbir Rahman looked in an impressive form while chasing 180 runs target against Cumilla Warriors but wickets kept falling from the other end, causing a serious hamper in their road to SF.

Rahman scored 62 runs at almost 159 strike rate and will be hoping to once again provide a strong base to his middle order batsmen.

Warriors’ leading run-scorer and skipper Dawid Malan will hope to bounce back after falling for just 1 run in their last outing.

In the bowling department too, Cumilla Warriors will have to improve a lot. The Warriors conceded 179 runs and picked just 2 wickets in their 20 overs. Mujeeb Ur Rahman will hope to pick wickets along with his economical spell of 4-0-25-0.

Khulna Tigers performance in BPL 2019-20:

Cumilla Warriors vs Khulna Tigers: BPL 2019 Match Prediction

After beating Sylhet Thunder in the last game to keep their Play-offs hopes alive, Cumilla Warriors take on Khulna Tigers in their penultimate game of BPL 2019-20, before facing them again in the last game on January 10. It looks like a virtual knockout game for the Warriors as the Tigers seem to be their direct opposition in the race to next round.

Meanwhile, Khulna Tigers are coming on the back of a 6-wicket loss against Chattogram Challengers and a defeat here might take their fortunes out of their hands. 2 back to back defeats have made things difficult for them.

Cumilla Warriors performance in BPL 2019:

Dawid Malan has led the Warriors’ batting, having scored 435 runs. He missed one game due to personal reasons, but made a brilliant comeback. Soumya Sarkar has ably supported him with 2 half-centuries. However, the rest of the batting has struggled.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman, as expected, has been their star performer. He has taken 14 wickets at an economy of five. Al-Amin Hossain and Soumya Sarkar have supported him and have a combined tally of 23 wickets.

Khulna Tigers performance in BPL 2019:

The Tigers have depended heavily on Rilee Rossouw and Mushfiqur Rahim in the batting department. They have a combined tally of 649 runs with six half-centuries. The rest of the batting has looked out of sorts. Khulna’s experiments with their opening partners have gone haywire as well.

Robbie Frylinck has added some useful runs lower down the order. Frylinck also has been one of their key wicket-takers with 10 wickets. Shahidul Islam didn’t play the last game, but is their leading wicket-taker. Shafiul has an economy of 8.70 though the fast bowler has seven wickets in his kitty.
