It is the 11th game of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022 and will be an important one for Fortune Barishal who take on the Khulna Tigers. The Tigers are in good form, and they come here with a massive win against the Chattogram Challengers. Fortune Barishal went down against the Comilla Victorians in their previous game.
Fortune Barishal comes here with back-to-back losses. In the three games played so far, the side hasn’t gone past the 140-run mark. Their batsmen have looked in poor form and this is something that would be worrying the side. The Khulna Tigers look in good shape with the bat and the ball and they would aim to continue the same way here.
Mushfiqur Rahim led from the front as his side registered a confident 6-wicket win against the Chattogram Challengers in their previous game. With two wins in three games the side has improved its position on the points table. Rahim would look to exploit the loss of form in the Barishal camp and put themselves in a comfortable position on the points table.
Andre Fletcher played a good knock at the top in the last game, and he would aim to offer a solid start with Soumya Sarkar. Rahim and Seekkuge Prasanna played well in the middle order in the last game and along with Rony Talukdar, they strengthen this side. They have good finishers in Yasir Ali, Thisara Perera, and Mahedi Hasan, and quick runs would be expected from them.
Their bowlers did an excellent job in the last game and the same would be expected here. Kamrul Islam and Nabil Samad will have to bowl tight spells as Barishal have good firepower at the top. Prasanna failed to make use of the conditions and the side would have bigger expectations from him. Farhad Reza, Mahedi Hasan, and Perera add variety to this bowling attack.

Shakib Al Hasan’s side needs to recover from the two consecutive losses. They had started the tournament well with a win but have looked in poor shape since then. It was a terrible show with the bat in their last game against the Comilla Victorians that saw them being bowled out for 95 runs and losing the game by 63 runs. Hasan would like his side to gather steam in this game and register a big win.
Shykat Ali continues to struggle with his form and the side would need him to score runs at the top with Najmul Hossain Shanto. Hasan and Chris Gayle bring lots of experience to the middle order and they must do the big-hitting along with Towhid Hridoy. In Dwayne Bravo, Nurul Hasan, and Ziaur Rahman the side has good hitters down the order adding to their batting firepower.
Shakib has been brilliant with the ball so far, but he would need good support from Nayeem Hasan opening the bowling for the side. Jake Lintott looked good in the last game, and he will have to bowl tight spells with Bravo and Taijul Islam. The side would like to see tighter spells from Ziaur Rahman who is yet to shine so far.

Chattogram would have clear skies on January 29. The surface would be flat, but we have already seen slowness on the wicket where batsmen would have to be watchful. Spinners are likely to have a good time on this wicket and the side batting first would need at least 160 runs on the board.
The wicket at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram is among the best for the bowlers in Bangladesh. Batsmen who get their eyes set in have done well here in the past. Spinners enjoy bowling here as the ball stops and can surprise batsmen. Fast bowlers who mix their lengths have also done well.
We have seen slowness in the surface in the two games that have been played so far and setting up a score isn’t the easiest of things to do. The side winning the toss in this game would look to take advantage of the conditions by opting to bowl first in this game.
There would be pressure on Fortune Barishal to come out of their losing spree. Their batsmen are yet to shine in the tournament and the side would have to make improvements in this area to find its place. The Khulna Tigers come here with their confidence high and have their batsmen in good form. It is expected to be a close game, but Tigers would start slightly ahead of Fortune Barishal.
