When and where:
Rangpur Riders will take on Comilla Victorians in the BPL, on (February 2) at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The Riders are the leaders of the league and are the defending champions as well. They have been exceptional this season as well and they will be looking to do better than what they have done already. They have one of the best-attacking lineups in the game with the likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rilee Rossouw. If they are on this course for a while, it might seem that they are going to be winning this year as well when it comes to capturing the championship.
Meanwhile, Comilla Victorians are the second-placed side and have played one less game that the current leaders Rangpur Riders. In fact, they have played a game less as well, and it is clear that they too have an excellent side in the tournament. The team will be looking to do the more of the same as they are winning games easily and seal their spot in the top four in order to play for a berth in the finals.
The match will begin at 1:00 PM IST.
