Khulna Tigers and Rangpur Riders will face off in Match No. 10 of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2023 on Friday, January 13. The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram will host the contest.
The Riders, led by Nurul Hasan Sohan, are placed second in the table with two points and a net run rate of +0.621. After beating defending champions Comilla Victorians by 34 runs, the Riders faced a six-wicket defeat at the hands of Fortune Barishal on January 10.
The Riders, in the meantime, won’t have the services of Mohammad Nabi, Benny Howell and Sikandar Raza for the upcoming game. All three overseas players will now be taking part in the ILT20. With that in mind, the likes of Saim Ayub, Shamim Hossain and Aaron Jones may get an opportunity.
The Tigers, captained by Yasir Ali Chowdhury, have had a horrendous campaign so far. Having lost both their matches, they are placed sixth in the points table with a net run rate of -0.413. They will go into the game after losing to Chattogram Challengers by nine wickets.
Azam Khan scored his maiden T20 hundred and helped his team post a decent score of 178 for the loss of five wickets. However, his knock went in vain as the Challengers chased the target down with four balls to spare after Usman Khan’s 103-run knock.
