The 32nd match of Bangladesh Premier League 2019-20 will feature Sylhet Thunder and Rangpur Rangers in a clash that pits two teams in the bottom half of the standings. The Rangers are currently placed sixth with 6 points from 9 matches while the Sylhet Thunder are placed at the foot of the table with just a solitary win from 9 games.
Thunder will host the match at the Sylhet International Stadium and they will aim to snap their 4-match losing streak. They were very close to a win in their last fixture against Cumilla Warriors, however, the heroics of David Wiese denied them a victory in the Super Over.

The Rangpur-based franchise has also been a bit unlucky in the tournament. They had got off to a disastrous start as they lost their first four matches. They have registered two wins in their last three games, although they lost their last encounter against the Rajshahi Royals. However, the Rangers would take inspiration from the fact that they had overcame Sylhet's challenge the last time the pair met.
Talking about the players to watch out for, all eyes will be on Sohag Gazi, who starred with his all-round performance for Sylhet in their last match. For the Rangpur Rangers, Mustafizur Rahman could be the key component.
