KT vs COV Dream11 Prediction

Bangladesh Premier League, 2019 | Khulna Titans vs Comilla Victorians, 20th Match | KT vs COV Who Will Win

The second match of the day will be played between the Khulna Titans and Comilla Victorians at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet. Both teams are coming into this affair after winning their previous games.

Khulna Titans finally got themselves going after they emerged victorious in their previous game against Rajshahi Kings by 25 runs. That was a much-needed win for the Titans who were looking to explode after 4 losses on the trot.

Comilla Victorians meanwhile, have 3 wins against their name from 5 encounters and are looking well settled at the points table grabbing the second position just behind Dhaka Dynamites.

Their last encounter was against Sylhet Sixers whom they pounded quite comfortably by 8 wickets courtesy a supreme bowling effort from Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan and Liam Dawson who accumulated 9 wickets between them.

With some form backing the Titans, they can possess a defiant challenge to the Comilla Victorians who would be eyeing their 4th win of the season.
