Comilla Victorians (COV) will take the stage alongside Rangpur Riders (RAN) in the 41st match of the Bangladesh Premier League 2023, at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, on February 10. This will be a crucial game for both sides as the winner of the contest will seal their berth for the Qualifier one. Additionally, that team will get two shots at the summit clash.
Comilla Victorians are on an eight-match winning streak and would look to carry on the winning momentum by registering a win against the Riders. Nurul Hasan & Co. on the other hand, have also been in phenomenal form, having won their last six games and they would back themselves to defeat the defending champions. With the two sides playing some great cricket, one can expect it to be an exhilarating contest.

BPL Today’s Match Pitch Report:
The pitch at the Shere Bangla National Stadium has offered assistance to the bowlers and thus, the batters will need to spend time in the middle to adjust to the pace of the wicket. In the last five games played at the venue, four have been won by the chasing side. Therefore, the team winning the toss will prefer to have a go with the ball first.

Probable Best Performers from COV vs RAN
Probable best batter: Mohammad Rizwan
Mohammad Rizwan has been quite magnificent in the BPL 2023. The wicketkeeper-batter has featured in eight games and notched up 327 runs at a strike rate of 127.73. He has been in a rich vein of form and it would not be a surprise if he puts up a show in the encounter against the Riders.
Probable best bowler: Haris Rauf
Haris Rauf has breathed fire in the marquee tournament thus far. He has bagged nine wickets in eight matches and that too at a sensational economy of 6.79. The Pakistan pacer was impeccable with the ball in his last game, which was against Chattogram Challengers where he registered insane figures of 4-0-14-2. He would again look to bring his A-game into play in the coming game.
