In a rematch of the Chattogram leg's last match, Cumilla Warriors will battle the Rajshahi Royals in match number 23 of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019. The two teams had met a few days ago where Rajshahi won the match by 7 wickets despite Dawid Malan's hundred.
The victory helped the Royals take the second position on the standings with 8 points in 5 matches. On the other side, the Warriors fell to the fifth position with just 4 points in 6 games. This will be a must-win encounter for the Cumilla-based franchise because another loss would diminish their chances of making it to the next round.
Cumilla Warriors will rest their hopes on the shoulders of Malan once again because he has been their biggest star of the tournament. Besides, the duo of Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Sabbir Rahman will have to support their English teammate in the batting department. On the bowling front, Warriors will expect Al-Amin Hossain and Mujeeb Ur Rahman to continue their fine form.

Also, top order batsman Afif Hossain played an incredible knock of 76 runs. Hence, Royals will look to repeat the same performance once again.
