We are into the most important phase of the league games in the Bangladesh Premier League 2022 and the 22nd game would see the Khulna Tigers battle out against the Sylhet Sunrisers. The Tigers defeated the Sunrisers in the last game they played and the last game for the Sunrisers was washed away by rain.
Sylhet Sunrisers have struggled with their bowling attack so far in the tournament. Their bowlers have failed to trouble batsmen and most of them have bowled poor lines and lengths. It remains to be seen if the Sunrisers can bounce back in this game with a strong performance here.
It was an excellent performance from Mushfiqur Rahim’s side in the last game as they won by 9 wickets against the Sylhet Sunrisers. They bowled well and chased down the score with ease. As they play the same side in this game Rahim would like his players to repeat the same magic and improve their position on the points table.
Andre Fletcher and Soumya Sarkar are looking in good form and the side would hope to see a good start from them here. In the middle order, Mushfiqur Rahim shall have to anchor the innings and add runs with Yasir Ali and Thisara Perera. Mahedi Hasan and Seekkuge Prasanna are experienced batters down the order and runs would be expected from them.
Khaled Ahmed and Nabil Samat come here with an excellent show in the last game and shall aim to make the best out of the momentum. Kamrul Islam Rabbi also did well, and he would look to keep scoring under check with the experienced Prasanna and Mahedi Hasan. Perera and Sarkar add strength to this attack.
Mushfiqur Rahim (c & wk), Andre Fletcher, Soumya Sarkar, Yasir Ali, Mahedi Hasan, Thisara Perera, Seekkuge Prasanna, Jaker Ali, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Khaled Ahmed, Nabil Samad

Mosaddek Hossain’s side saw its last game against Fortune Barishal being washed away by rain. The side has won just one game so far and has struggled with its form. A loss would end all their hopes of making it to the next round. Hossain would like his players to come out all guns blazing and register a big win.
Openers Lendl Simmons and Anamul Haque had started the season well and the side would like to see a good show from them here. In the middle order, Colin Ingram will need to set up partnerships with Ravi Bopara, Alauddin Babu, and Hossain. Mohammad Mithun and Muktar Ali are good hitters of the ball and there would be a lot riding on their shoulders.
Their bowling attack lacks teeth, and the side would need to see tight spells from Sohag Gazi and Shiraz Ahmed in this game. Muktar Ali and Nazmul Islam have done well in some games, and they will have to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. Mosaddek Hossain and Jubair Hossain shall need to come up with better bowling this game.
Mosaddek Hossain (c), Lendl Simmons, Anamul Haque (wk), Colin Ingram, Mohammad Mithun, Nadif Chowdhury, Muktar Ali, Sohag Gazi, Jubair Hossain, Shiraz Ahmed, Nazmul Islam

The skies over Sylhet would be clear on February 7. We expect the surface to be challenging for the batsmen as it tends to have variation in pace. Bowlers have always taken advantage of it here. The side batting first in this game would need 170 runs to defend it with a wet ball in the evening.
Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet has been one of the most bowler-friendly T20 venues in the sub-continent. Fast bowlers do well with the new ball and the spinners also enjoy bowling and have enjoyed success. Batsmen who acclimatize with the pace of the track have also scored runs at this venue in the past.
It is late winter, and dew would be a major factor at the toss. Chasing the score would be easy as the side bowling in the second innings of the game shall have trouble gripping the ball. The side winning the toss would have no hesitation in bowling first in this game.
Sylhet Sunrisers must win this game to keep their hopes alive for the rest of the season. Their bowlers would have to make a strong comeback for the side to create its chances in the game. Khulna Tigers come here with a big win against Sylhet and have momentum on their side and this would put them ahead in the contest.
