SSR vs CMV Team Previews

Sylhet Strikers

The Sylhet Strikers were easily one of the best teams during the group stages as they were the first to qualify for the next stage. They ended up finishing at the top of the points table thanks to a better NRR compared to that of the Victorians.

Mashrafe Mortaza has led his team from the front, as he has been in good form with the ball, picking up 12 wickets so far. Supporting him in the pace attack will be Mohammad Amir, who is the leading wicket-taker for the Strikers, as well as Rubel Hossain.

In the spin department, Imad Wasim has been very economical and has also picked up 12 wickets, while Tanzim Hasan Sakib has struggled a bit. Towhid Hridoy and Najmul Hossain Shanto have been superb at the top of the order, while Zakir Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim have been solid in the middle order.

Gulbadin Naib made his debut in the last match but wasn’t quite impressive, while Ryan Burl hasn’t got many chances so far to prove his worth. Overall, the Sylhet Strikers seem to have a good balance between the batsmen and the bowlers.

Comilla Victorians

The Comilla Victorians had a rough start to the season as they lost their first three matches of the tournament. However, they have made a stunning comeback since then, and are on a 9-match winning streak coming into this match, which is just phenomenal.

Mohammad Rizwan and Litton Das have been brilliant as an opening pair and have given their team many good starts in this series. Imrul Kayes and Jaker Ali have done a decent job in the middle order while Khushdil Shah has played the role of a finisher to perfection lower down the order, thanks to his hard-hitting abilities. Khushdil has also been excellent with the ball, picking up 8 wickets.

The team has further bolstered its all-round capabilities by bringing in Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, both of whom are capable of scoring quick runs. In the bowling department, Mustafizur Rahman finally seems to have hit good form as he picked up 3 wickets in the last match.

Mukidul Islam too has taken some wickets but has been quite expensive. Tanvir Islam has been the standout bowler for the Victorians, picking up 14 wickets while also being quite economical. Along with Sunil Narine, he will is likely to play an important role in this match.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Sher E Bangla is good to bat on and has produced some high-scoring encounters this season. The pitch has good and consistent bounce, making it easy for batsmen to go through with their shots. However, since the ground has hosted quite a few matches over the last week, there are bound to be some rough patches aiding the bowlers, especially the spinners.

The average first-inning score here is between 160-170.

Since this is a D/N match, dew will make it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball, and chasing under the lights is always a preferred scenario. The weather is expected to be clear with temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius and humidity of around 65%.


SSR vs CMV Betting Tips

The Sylhet Strikers began their campaign on a strong note but their form has taken a slight dip in recent matches as they have lost 3 of their last 7 matches. On the other hand, the Comilla Victorians are riding a 9-match winning streak and appear to be unstoppable. That said, both teams have a good chance of winning, but if we had to pick one, it would be the Victorians.

Bet on the Comilla Victorians to win.
