The defending champions Rangpur Riders finished as the topper of the group stage after a huge 9-wicket win against Comilla Victorians in their last game. The big win helped them top the table surpassing Victorians. Rangpur needed a win in their final league match to finish in top two and once again face Comilla in the first Qualifier. The Victorians decided to rest their big players to keep them fresh for the playoffs.
Pitch and Conditions
It’s a night match and hence, dew is most likely to be a major factor. Bowlers are expected to hit the right channels in order to restrict the batters. Batting second may be the safer option.
