Khulna Titans take on Rajshahi Kings in a BPL tie Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday. Khulna Titans have struggled since the start of the tournament and are still looking for the first elusive win in the competition after four outings. They came close to a win in their last fixture against Chittagong Vikings but the later ran away with the win in the super over.
Rajshahi Kings, on the other hand, have 50% win record to show after four round of games so far in the competition. Riding high on the confidence of the win secured in the last outing, against Rangpur Riders, Rajshahi Kings would look to collect two points on offer here and catapult into the top half of the BPL points table.

Wicket-keeper – Zakir Hasan scored a fine 42 in the last fixture and is our choice of the keeper.
Batsmen – Basis current form, we’d pick Paul Stirling, Junaid Siddique, Soumya Sarkar and David Malan in the batting department.
All-rounders – Mahmudullah and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are all excellent options besides Carlos Brathwaite who had a decent outing and can be an X-factor here.
Bowlers – Shariful Islam picked a couple of scalps in the last outing. Isuru Udana and Mustafizur Rahman are the other two options you shouldn’t miss.
