Fortune Barishal and Comilla Victorians will lock horns in the 21st match of the Bangabandhu BPL 2022 on Monday, February 7, at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet.

The Victorians, led by Imrul Kayes, have arguably been the standout team in the tournament. Having won four of their six games, they are sitting pretty atop the points table. Their net run rate of 0.942 is also the best among the six participating teams.

Their previous game against Minister Group Dhaka got washed off without a single delivery being bowled. Before that, they beat the Chattogram Challengers by nine wickets (DLS method). Mustafiaur Rahman was the Player of the Match for his five-wicket haul.

Barishal, led by Shakib Al Hasan, meanwhile, are second in the points table. However, their net run rate of -0.287 is the second-worst among all the participating teams. Their previous game against Sylhet Sunrisers on Friday didn't take place, as rain played spoilsport.

In their last completed game, they beat Naeem Islam's Challengers by 14 runs. After opting to bat, Barishal were bowled out for 149 after captain Shakib Al Hasan scored a half-century. He was adjudged the Player of the Match after he also accounted for three scalps.
