SYLHET SUNRISERS VS BARISAL BULLS TEAM PREVIEWS
Sylhet Sunrisers have been absolutely terrible this season and once more, we saw a good individual performance from their batsmen in a losing cause. A strong batting lineup on paper has just failed to perform so far as a unit. Lendl Simmons, Colin Ingram, and Now Mithun all have good individual scores but they always come in isolation.
This lack of batting performances is going to be a problem against the strong Fortune Barishal bowling attack.
Of course, it is not as if the Sylhet Sunrisers have a strong bowling lineup of their own to cover up the batting failures. If Anything, their bowling is weaker than their batting and possibly the worst in the Bangladesh Premier League this season.
The Sylhet Sunrisers picked up just one wicket in their previous match against the Khulna Tigers. Not a single bowler looked capable of picking up wickets and the runs kept on flowing as well. At this point in time, we see no reason to bet on the Sylhet Sunrisers apart from a slight possibility that one of their batsmen could play a match-winning inning.
Fortune Barishal continues to make frequent changes to its batting lineup but that approach is actually working in its favor. The opposition never seems to know who is going to come out to bat or at what position and that keeps them guessing.
Chris Gayle, Shakib Al Hasan, Dwayne Bravo, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman are the four players that have led the way for Fortune Barishal. The fact that Gayle is able to provide a fast start and counter the spinners is working heavily in favor of the team and now that Shakib is back contributing in both the batting and the bowling, Fortune Barishal is looking like a very strong contender for the BPL 2022 title.
There are a few questions around the rest of the players as they have not done anything of note, except maybe Mehidy Hasan Rana, and if the overseas players have a bad day, Fortune Barishal could suffer.
