With an aim of securing their place in the next round of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20, Khulna Tigers will look to crush the Cumilla Warriors when they lock horns with each other in match number 40 of the tournament.
The two teams had met each other on 8th January 2020 where the Tigers defeated their rivals by 34 runs. This win had helped the Khulna-based franchise to move an inch closer to the playoffs. They now have 12 points from 10 matches whereas the Warriors hold the fifth position with 10 points in 11 matches.
The Dawid Malan-led side have a small chance of making it to the playoffs but they can keep themselves alive in the competition by recording a big win in the upcoming match. The Warriors' fans would expect the likes of Soumya Sarkar and Stiaan van Zyl to bring their A-game to the table. Also, Sabbir Rahman would look to continue his fine form against the Tigers.
On the other side, Khulna Tigers would rest their hopes on the South African duo of Rilee Rossouw and Robbie Frylinck, who played a match-winning role for them in the last match. Also, the local stars would try to play their best cricket because they are just one good performance away from reaching the playoffs.
