The defending BPL champions Rangpur Riders meet Rajshahi Kings in their next fixture at Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday. In the four fixtures they have been involved so far, Rangpur Riders have secured two wins, although they skittled in their last outing against Dhaka Dynamites. By now, they have identified their best combination and should start as favourites here against a side that has been struggling.
Rajshahi Kings have lost two of their first three fixtures in the competition and would want to get their campaign on track with a win here. The Kings went down, against Comilla Victorians, in their last game of the tournament.
