Comilla Victorians would be looking to book a berth in the playoffs as they take on Sylhet Sunrisers in the 26th game of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022. Both sides come into this game lost their previous games. The Victorians went down against Fortune Barishal while Sunrisers also lost against the same opponent.
It has been a miserable tournament for the Sunrisers and the side has won just once in the eight games they have played. Their bowlers have failed in almost all games. It would be interesting to see how the Sunrisers perform in this game as they have no hopes of making it to the next round.
Imrul Kayes’ side suffered a batting collapse in the last game as they went down by 32 runs against Fortune Barishal. Kayes would sense an opportunity here considering Sylhet’s poor form and want his side to register a big win and book a berth in the playoffs.
Kayes and Liton Das form a strong opening combination and they would look to offer a good start in this game. The middle-order failed in the last game and the side would need runs from Moeen Ali, Mominul Haque, and Mahmudul Hasan Joy. In Sunil Narine and Nahidul Islam, they have good hitters of the ball down the order.
Nahidul Islam and Mustafizur Rahman would aim at early strikes as the Sunrisers have been good with the bat. Tanvir Islam has shown good form and he would be expected to bowl tight lines in the middle overs. Narine and Moeen Ali are experienced bowlers, and the side would want to see a good show from them.

Ravi Bopara’s side has lost all hopes of making it to the playoffs with their 12-run loss against Fortune Barishal in the last game. It was another instance of miserable bowling from the side as they allowed the opponents to put up a big score on the board. The side would play for its pride here and Bopara shall like to see a better show from his players.
Colin Ingram is in great form, and he would look to set up a good opening wicket stand with Anamul Haque. Bopara, Mohammad Mithun, and Mosaddek Hossain are experienced players and runs would be expected from them in this game. Mizanur Rahman and Alauddin Babu shall need to add runs down the order for the side to win.
Sohag Gazi and Shiraz Ahmed need to bowl tight spells with the new ball which has been one of the major problem areas for the side. In the middle overs, they would expect tight spells from Babu, Nazmul Islam, and Ask Swadhin. Bopara and Mosaddek Hossain shall have to come up with tight overs considering the form of other bowlers.

The skies over Sylhet would be clear on February 9. The wicket would be challenging for batsmen and bowlers are expected to do well due to the slowness on the surface. The side batting first would need 180 runs to defend it successfully in the event where the dew would make batting conditions difficult.
Sylhet International Cricket Stadium isn’t one of those typical high-scoring T20 venues. We have seen low-scoring games in the past. Batsmen must stick to the wicket and build their innings to do well. Both fast bowlers and spinners get good assistance from the track.
It is an evening game and dew would be a major factor. The side chasing the score would have an advantage as bowlers would struggle to grip the ball. The side winning the toss shouldn’t have any hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Sylhet Sunrisers have failed to execute their plans in this tournament. Their bowlers have been in horrible form, and this has led to the side suffering big losses. They are down on confidence, and this is a major problem. Comilla Victorians have been one of the best sides in the tournament. They will start favorites in this game.
