Sylhet Sunrisers face a tough challenge as they take on the Fortune Barishal in the 24th game of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022. The side went down against the Khulna Tigers in the last game as they failed again with the ball. Fortune Barishal come here with a win against the Comilla Victorians, and they would have their confidence high.
The Sylhet Sunrisers have won just one out of the seven games the side has played. Their bowling attack has been in poor form and the side would have to win this game by a big margin to open its chances for a place in the next round. Fortune Barishal are almost through to the next round and the side would look to build momentum with a win here.
Ravi Bopara took charge of the side from Mosaddek Hossain, but he couldn’t change its fortunes as they went down against the Khulna Tigers by 15 runs. They bowled poorly again and Bopara would expect a better show from his bowlers as they take on the table-toppers in the next game.
Lendl Simmons and Anamul Haque have scored runs and the side would like to see them offer a good start. Colin Ingram brings in experience to the middle order and he would look to add runs with Mohammad Mithun and Ravi Bopara. Mosaddek Hossain, Alok Kapali, and Alauddin Babu would need to do the big-hitting in the final overs of the game.
Their bowling attack has failed the side and they would like to see tight spells in this game from Hossain and Sohag Gazi. Bopara, Babu, and Ask Swadhin also proved ineffective in the last game and the side would need better efforts with the ball from them as they enter a must-win contest.

Shakib Al Hasan’s side registered a convincing win in the last game as they defeated Comilla Victorians by 32 runs. With this win, the side has moved to the top place on the points table, and they would look to further cement their position in this game. They are up against a side low on confidence and Shakib would aim to register a big win here.
On the batting front, they have a strong opening combination in Chris Gayle and Munim Shahriar and runs would be expected from them. Shakib played well in the last game, and he would look to add runs with Towhid Hridoy and Najmul Hossain Shanto in this game. Dwayne Bravo and Nurul Hasan add to the side’s batting strength down the order.
They have bowled well since the start of the season and early wickets would be expected from Mujeeb ur Rahman and Shakib. Bravo has been among the leading wicket-takers this season and he adds strength to the attack with Shanto and Nayeem Hasan. Gayle adds a good bowling option to this attack.

Sylhet would see clear skies on February 8, and we expect to see challenging batting conditions in this game. The wicket is slow and hence batsmen have to play to the merit of the ball. Dew would be a factor in the second innings and the side batting first would need a minimum of 170 runs on the board.
Sylhet International Cricket Stadium is a good venue for the bowlers, and they have done well here in the past. Fast bowlers do well with the new ball and the spinners also enjoy bowling and have enjoyed success. Batsmen must stick to the wicket and rotate strikes to do well in this game.
The wicket is a challenging one for batting and we have seen batsmen struggle to time the ball in the games that have been played here. Under these circumstances, the side bowling first would have an advantage. Hence, the side winning the toss here would opt to bowl first in the game.
Sylhet Sunrisers have had a miserable run till now. Their bowling attack has failed to execute its plans and the side would need spirited efforts from its bowlers to get close to winning the game here. Fortune Barishal are in excellent form and this would make them favorites to win this game.
