Sylhet Thunder and Comilla Warriors look to push their chances for qualification!
Comilla Warriors will win the match!
BPL 2019-20 season nearing a very interesting phase where every team will be pushing each other with every passing match for their playoff spot.
Comilla Warriors and Sylhet Thunder are lagging behind in the qualification race currently. Comilla Warriors need to win their remaining matches and then look forward to the results of other teams to qualify. Sylhet Thunder, on the other hand, are out of qualification practically but will look to play spoilsport in the chances of Comilla warriors as they have two back-to-back matches against them.
Sylhet Thunder is in a three-match losing streak currently and will look to end their jinx in this match. Jonathan Charles (262 runs) and Mohammed Mithun (241 runs) have been their prolific run scorers this season. Mosadek Hossain and Andrew Fletcher are off-color recently after their impressive performances during the start of the season.
Ebadat Hossain and Controversial Krish Santokie are the chief wicket-takers with 8 & 7 wickets respectively this season. The rest of their bowling unit is not consistent and no one has taken more 4 wickets this season. They failed to defend the target in the last three consecutive matches.
Mohammed Mithun – Mohammed Mithun has scores of 62 & 49* in the last three outings and is looking in good form. He has a total of 241 runs this season and will look to add more runs to his name.
Naveen-Ul-Haq – He came up with impressive bowling figures of 4-0-13-1 in the last match but failed to help his team win. He has taken 4 wickets at an economy of 6.7 RPO this season.

Comilla Warriors ended their 5 matches losing streak after a miraculous last-ball victory in their last game against Chattogram Challengers.
Skipper Dawid Malan was the savior with a score of 74 runs off 51 balls in the chase before being dismissed of penultimate ball. Soumya Sarkar has come up with good contributions with the bat while the rest of the team are struggling for consistency.
Surprisingly, Soumya Sarkar is their highest wicket-taker with 11 wickets. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Al- Amin Hossain have chipped wickets at regular intervals taking 9 & 8 wickets respectively. Their bowling unit is conceding far too many runs easily and making life difficult for their batting order.
Soumya Sarkar – Sarkar has been the all-rounder of the season this year with 241 runs and 11 wickets so far. Soumya Sarkar has been one of the regular members of the national team and his experience is invaluable for the team.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman – Mujeeb scored a boundary of the last ball to seal the match for his team. He has taken 9 wickets at a frugal economy rate of just 5.2 RPO this season.

Sylhet will have a hot and bright climate on the matchday with no rain possibilities. We will have a full quota of overs without any interruption in this match.
Sylhet is one of the average scoring grounds in Bangladesh and ball may onto come to bat easily here. We can expect an average score of 160 runs.
Chasing teams have a 75% success rate and the inclination of teams to batting second will be a big factor in the toss.
Both teams are not in their best of form in this season but a thrilling victory for Comilla Warriors will do a world of good for their confidence. Cumilla has a slightly better bowling attack when compared to Sylhet Thunder with the likes of Mujeeb, AL- Amin, and Sarkar. We predict Comilla Warriors to win this match.
Comilla Warriors will win the match!
