Kings have a must win match at their table. If they win this encounter against Comilla Victorians, they will be in a much better position to qualify for the next round of the BPL 2016. They also will have the matter of revenge in mind. Kings were the only team other than Bulls today, unfortunate enough to be beaten by an abysmal Victorians. Kings are on a four match winning streak and the Victorians recently got a consolation win against the Bulls. They have nothing but pride to salvage from this match as the chances for Victorians qualifying for the next round depends on other teams losing all off their next matches!
Kings are in a great shape. Each match day one or two batsmen gets a chance to show off their batting skills. As a result all of the batsmen are in form. Mominul is a bit unlucky for the last few matches but a technically solid batsman like him won’t take much time to shine again. Darren Sammy is in song and our gem Mehedi Miraz was already in form with the bowl. But last match he displayed his batting capabilities in style.This is great news for the Kings as they can depends on lower middle order batsmen like Farhad Reza and Mehedi Hasan Miraz to take away any match.
Rakibul could be considered to open for the Kings. A left hand – right hand combination will cause some discomfort among the opponent bowlers and fielders.
The bowlers are being exceptionally brilliant the last few matches. Nazmul Apu has been a revelation as he manages to take advantage of the slow pitch with deceptively flighted deliveries and some awkward turns off the pitch. Miraz as always continues to get important breakthroughs. Mohammad Sami and Farhad Reza with their years of experience are at their best at pressure moments. Abul Hasan Raju with his slower deliveries is the best option to wipe of the tail of any teams.
Samit Patel is a bit off color right now with the bat. He can make way for the veteran kiwi all rounder James Franklin as we have seen the SBNCS pitches making things easier for seamers.
Though we have previously been defeated by the Victorans, this is as easy as it gets. Victorians have nothing to gain except their pride from this match. Winning this match is a priority for the Kings. We can go on extending our winning streak for 5 matches, we believe in the Kings!
