Rajshahi Kings faced Khulna Titans in their first match of this season. Titans narrowly escaped a defeat from the Kings. Misfortune and nervousness played a part in that defeat. But those days are long gone. Titans have won their last match and are now at the top of the table. Which will give Titans more reason to fear the Kings because Kings are more than adept at defeating table toppers!
Kings are in a wonderful form and a had a confidence boost by defeating two table toppers in two consecutive matches in style. Kings batsmen are enjoying their good run of form and a loss of wickets doesn’t seem to trouble them because Kings are confident that the next batsmen is able to carry on in the same manner. Mominul, Junaid, Sabbir, Samit, Sammy and Akmal – all of the top order batsmen are in scoring form. The bowlers are not getting much wickets but their meticulous bowling are keeping a tight hold on the opposition batsmen which is in turn mounting pressure on them. Nazmul Apu seem to be in a great shape as we saw his devious flighted deliveries and awkward turns causing problems for Rangpur batsmen. Mohammad Sami is another go to guy when you need a crucial over bowled without getting hit for boundaries.
Titans have a very fragile batting lineup. They have no recognizable batting after their top collapses. So Kings should run through their top order quick and fast. Shafiul and Junaid are the only two bowlers in form, but the Kings shouldn’t face much trouble facing them.
It is a great time for he Kings in terms of form and confidence. We expect the Kings to dominate against the Titans.
