It will be a battle for the top spot on the points table as the Comilla Victorians take on Fortune Barishal in the 21st game of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022. Both sides come into this game having seen their previous games being washed away. The winner of this game would go to the top of the points table and a step closer to the playoffs. Both sides would be aiming for that here.
The two sides had met earlier in the season and the Victorians had registered a massive win. The side would look to repeat the same show here but it would be a tougher challenge as Fortune Barishal haven’t lost a game since then. There are being players on both sides and we expect to see a tight contest here.
Imrul Kayes’ side saw its last game against Minister Group Dhaka being washed away by rain. The side is sitting at the top of the points table. Their batting has been good, and the side has also bowled well. They had defeated Fortune Barishal by a big margin in the previous game and Kayes would like his players to draw inspiration from that win here.
On the batting front, Kayes has scored runs and he would look to offer the side a good start opening with Liton Das. In the middle order, they have good hitters of the ball in Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, and Mahmudul Hasan Joy. The side would also expect to see big hitting from Sunil Narine and Mahidul Islam Ankon.
Nahidul Islam and Tanvir Islam have shown good form and the side would need early wickets from them in this game. Narine, Mustafizur Rahman, and Moeen Ali have tons of experience, and this adds to the strength of their bowling. The side would want to see young Sumon Khan make good use of the conditions in this game.

Shakib Al Hasan would have been upset to see their last game against Sylhet Sunrisers being washed away. Before that the side has won three games in a row. It would be a tough challenge for the side against Victorians against whom they had lost by a big margin. Shakib would like to see a good show from his players in this game and reach the top of the points table.
Their batting hasn’t been at its best and the side would need a good opening wicket stand from Chris Gayle and Munim Shahriar in this game. In the middle order, the side has quality players in Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, and Shakib and they come with runs in the previous game. The side would also expect to see a good show from Dwayne Bravo and Irfan Sukkur in this game.
Mujeeb ur Rahman has done well and he adds to the side’s strength with the new ball. The side would expect him to deliver early wickets along with Shafiqul Islam. Bravo and Shakib will look to make the best use of their experience in this game. In Gayle, Hridoy, and Mehedi Hasan Rana there is a good balance in this attack.

The skies over Sylhet would be clear on February 7. The wicket would be challenging for batting and we expect to see some assistance for the bowlers early both with the new ball and also for the spinners. The side batting first in this game would need 160 runs to feel safe on the game.
Sylhet International Cricket Stadium isn’t one of those typical high-scoring T20 venues and bowlers have done well here in the past. Batsmen who stick to the wicket and build their innings have done well. Both fast bowlers and spinners get good assistance from the track.
It is the first game of the season at this venue and we expect to see the track offering some assistance to the bowlers. This is likely to be on the minds of both the teams at the toss and the one winning it shall look forward to bowling first.
It is expected to be a close contest as the two sides have shown good form. Fortune Barishal have been excellent with the ball but their batsmen have struggled to put up big scores on the board and this is troubling the side. Comilla Victorians have been the best side in the tournament and have an experienced bowling attack and this would make them favorites in the game.
