Fortune Barishal and Khulna Tigers will lock horns in Match No. 33 of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2023 on Friday, February 3. The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka will host the contest.

Barishal, led by Shakib Al Hasan, are handsomely placed second in the table with 12 points and a net run rate of +0.632. Another victory would make them the second team after Mashrafe Mortaza’s Sylhet Strikers to qualify for the next round.

They will go into the match after losing to Nasir Hossain’s Dhaka Dominators by five wickets in Sylhet. After being put in to bat first, Barishal racked up a decent score of 156 for eight. Dhaka chased down the target with seven balls to spare.

The Tigers, led by Yasir Ali Chowdhury, on the other hand, are in a must-win position and can’t afford any slip-ups from here on. They are currently on a four-match losing streak and desperately need a victory to get their campaign back on track.

They will go into the game after facing a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Imrul Kayes’ Comilla Victorians. The Tigers scored 210 on the back of Tamim Iqbal’s 95 and Shai Hope’s unbeaten 91. The Victorians chased down the target with 10 balls left.
