Khulna Titans meet Chittagong Vikings on Saturday’s BPL fixture, looking to open their account in the BPL 2019 after a disappointing start to the tournament. The Titans have suffered defeats all three outings so far in the tournament and for a turnaround, they must bury the ghosts of past performances and come out positive.
Chittagong Vikings, on the other hand, have one win and a loss to show after two games in the competition so far. They started the tournament with a three-wicket win over the defending champions Rangpur Riders to kickstart their BPL 2019 campaign. However, they could not kick on and slumped to defeat in the second game, against Sylhet Sixers on Wednesday (Jan. 09).
Head-to-head (last four fixtures)
Khulna Titans – 3, Chittagong Vikings – 1
Where – Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
When – 01:00 PM IST, January 12
Khulna Titans are likely to bring in reinforcements in desperation of a win.
