KT vs RK Dream11 Prediction

Bangladesh Premier League, 2019 | Khulna Titans vs Rajshahi Kings, 8th Match | KT vs RK Who Will Win

Khulna Titans and Rajshahi Kings will be contesting in the 8th match of the competition which will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Both teams were unable to win their opening encounters which means one of these sides will get going on the leader board.

Rajshahi Kings

The Kings were torn apart in their opening encounter against Dhaka Dynamites courtesy of an obnoxious knock from Hazratullah Zazai who blazed his way to 78 from 41 deliveries to power his side to 189 for the loss of 5 wickets.

The Kings were never in the chase as they were losing wickets in clusters. Opener Mohammad Hafeez was the top scorer with 29 runs and others were nowhere near their best in the batting.

Rubel Hossain was responsible for all the damages caused as he scalped 3 for just 7 runs in 3 overs and got an able ally in the form of Mohor Shaikh who delivered with 2 wickets of his own.

Khulna Titans

The Titans have lost two in a row, and their defeat in the last game at the hands of Dhaka Dynamites by 105 runs has definitely shattered their confidence.

They did possess some challenge in their opening encounter against Rangpur Riders where they almost achieved the target while chasing, but their performance against Dynamites has raised many eyebrows.

Chasing a mammoth 192 against the Dynamites, Titans succumbed to a mere 87 and it took only 13 overs for them to leave the pitch in a humiliating manner.

However, they now need to do their homework right to mark a comeback in the next match, and with the side they have they are capable enough to turn the tables.
