Comilla Victorians and Rangpur Riders are set to cross swords in Match no. 2 of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2023 on Friday, 6 January. The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka will host the contest.
The Riders, led by Bangladesh wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan Sohan, have a strong squad at their disposal. Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza had a memorable outing across all forms of cricket last year and will play an important role for them in the tournament.
Shoaib Malik’s role will be critical as he brings in a lot of experience. Parvez Hossain Emon is an explosive batter at the top and the focus will be on him. Mahedi Hasan has lost his place in the Bangladesh national T20I team and will be looking to prove a point.
The Victorians will be captained by Mustafizur Rahman, who will also play for the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Litton Das is in the form of his life, having played beautifully across all three formats for the Tigers.
Imrul Kayes is an experienced campaigner and his role at the top of the order will hold importance. Shykat Ali can hit the ball a long way and he will have the likes of Chadwick Walton and Mosaddek Hossain for company in the middle order for the Victorians.
