Bangladesh T20 League Match Prediction: Cumilla Warriors vs. Khulna Tigers

On 10 Jan, the spectators at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium (Dhaka) will witness Cumilla Warriors and Khulna Tigers competing against each other. The 40th fixture of the Bangladesh T20 League will set in motion at 6:30 PM (IST). As the league is reaching its final phase, all the franchises are leaving no stone unturned to make it to the play-offs. Since Chattogram Challengers, Dhaka Platoon, and Rajshahi Royals have already qualified for play-offs, this match will determine the 4th team to qualify for the playoffs. Therefore, the Tigers and Warriors are smack in the center of this jostling. The last encounter between these two teams saw the Tigers emerging as winners, so they are mostly likely to maintain their winning streak with this match.

Cumilla Warriors are one of the underperforming teams in this edition of the tournament. This match is crucial for them as they currently stand on fifth position. They have earned 10 points and registered victory in 5 out of 11 matches they have played so far. Upul Tharanga, Dawid Malan, and David Wiese (the leading run-scorer) are in the squad to enhance the batting average. Mujeeb can startle the batsmen with his spinning variations and tight line and lengths, Yasir Ali and Soumya Sarkar will also expected to chip in to bag maximum wickets.

Khulna Tigers have secured fourth spot on the points table with 6 victories and 12 points. The Tigers would look to dismantle Warriors with a fantastic batting line-up that includes Hashim Amla, Mushfiqur Rahim and Rilee Rossouw. Mushfiqur Rahim’s team would not let off this golden opportunity to make it to the playoffs. Robbie Frylinck is the leader of the bowling attack, along with Mehidy Hasan, Shaiful Islam, Aamer Yamin, and Aliss Islam in the squad.
