Comilla Victorians will face Rangpur Riders in the penultimate league phase match of Bangladesh Premier League 2023 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Friday, February 10. The match will begin at 1:30 PM IST.
Both teams have already qualified for the playoffs this season courtesy top four finishes in the BPL 2023 points table. However, a place in Qualifier 1 is still up for grabs and both sides will be looking for a positive finish to the league stage to seal that spot.
COV vs RAN Dream11 prediction for Bangladesh Premier League 2023
Victorians and Riders have been two of the most dominant sides in this year’s competition.
While Litton Das-led Comilla Victorians bounced back from three losses from as many games at the start of tournament to then win eight matches on the trot, Nurul Hasan-captained Rangpur Riders overcame a mixed start to their campaign to qualify for the playoffs.
The two teams have already met once this season with Rangpur Riders emerging victorious by 34 runs thanks to Player of the Match Rony Talukdar’s fiery 67 off 31 balls.
It is challenging to predict a winner in this encounter given the good run of form for both teams. Nonetheless, Comilla Victorians can be tipped to get full points owing to their stunning eight-match winning streak coming into this fixture.
