The Khulna Tigers lost a very important match against the Comilla Victorians in the Bangladesh Premier League. There is just one group match remaining for the Khulna Tigers (against the Comilla Victorians once more) and they are still in fifth on the BPL 2022 League Table. This means that not only do the Khulna Tigers need to win their last match but they also need the Chattogram Challengers to lose theirs.
The Comilla Victorians are now assured of a top-2 finish and so they will compete in the BPL 2022 Qualifier.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Khulna Tigers vs Comilla Victorians BPL 2022. The match is going to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the 12th of February 2022.
KHULNA TIGERS VS COMILLA WARRIORS TEAM PREVIEWS
The Khulna Tigers will be very disappointed that they allowed the Comilla Victorians to get to such a big total on a pitch that was not easy for batting. Only one of the bowlers had an economy rate of less than 8.00 and only three wickets were taken in the first 15 overs.
Bowling has been a concern for the Khulna Tigers throughout BPL 2022 and it once again proved to be a massive problem.
Unfortunately for them, things don’t seem set to get any easier in this match. The Khulna Tigers will be playing their match after Chattogram Challengers and will know exactly what needs to be done to qualify. If the Challengers win their match, Khulna Tigers will need to win and massively improve their net rate.
Such an ask will put pressure on the bowlers to pick wickets and keep the target down as well as on the batsmen to take additional risks in the quest for quick runs. This is not a good position to be in and from a betting perspective, we would advise staying far away from the Khulna Tigers in this match.
They could be forced to make some team changes, batting lineup changes, and the entire team could end up playing in a manner that we do not expect. On very few occasions such an approach pays off but most times, it causes a complete failure.
Khulna Tigers have a moderately strong batting lineup and a weak bowling attack. To suddenly expect miracles with that does not seem like a smart idea to us.
The Comilla Victorians played the perfect match against the Khulna Tigers and will be hoping to keep the momentum going. Liton Das looked in great form but the real inning of the match was played by Moeen Ali. We have seen Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Faf du Plessis, and Imrul Kayes all score runs in recent matches as well.
This gives them a massive advantage in the batting department.
Sunil Narine and Moeen Ali gave away just 35 runs in their 8 combined overs and picked up two wickets. That is the advantage that having two world-class all-rounders gives the Comilla Victorians. With Mustafizur Rahman and Tanvir Islam also in the team, the Comilla Victorians have a very strong bowling attack.
The Victorians are in great form and should be able to win this match with quite a bit of ease as well.
