Khulna look to consolidate position .


Matches at the second leg of the ongoing Akash-DTH Bangabandhu-Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) will resume with a day break at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) at the Sagorika area of Chattogram today. Unlike the other days, two matches will be held at the same stadium this time around.  Second-placed Khulna Tigers will take on demoralised Rangpur Rangers in the day’s first match, which will begin at 2:00pm .

This phase in Chattogram is very crucial for the participating BPL teams because the bulk of the teams who will go through the play-off phase or not will be defined. Rangpur Rangers will come into the match with bitter experience because they lost to Cumilla Warriors after giving a tough fight, while Khulna Tigers will get into the fixture with fresh and jubilant mind because they started Chattogram-leg in emphatic victory after scripting their first win in their BPL campaign in Dhaka.

Even if the Rangers played so far three matches, they are yet to win any match and placed at rock-bottom on the BPL points chart. Khulna on the other hand played only two matches less more than the other teams. They are the only team who has cent (hundred) percent winning record as they won two in two outings to date. The Tigers are languishing in the points-table just after table-leader Chattogram Challengers, who chalked up the highest eight points from five matches with four wins and one-off loss.

Rangpur Rangers picked two new local players including young fast-bowler Mokidul Islam Mugdho and all-rounder Al Amin Junior to complete their local players’ quota. They fielded them in the previous match against Cumilla Warriors and put on their highest score but their bowlers failed to defend it on Chattogram batting paradise, where Warriors’ batsmen overhauled the target comfortably with six wickets in hands and two balls remaining. Cameron Delport, a British-South African cricketer, joined Rangers’ tent is now in the port city to play BPL. He will be seen in their fourth match against Khulna Tigers. Rangpur didn’t turn up to the stadium for their pre-match day practice session but they have kept gym and swimming session for the players.

However, Khulna led by its head coach James Foster held their pre-match day practice session on the southern pitches of the ZACS in morning session, where every player poured their sweats at their hours-long net session. At the fag’s end of their practice, young leg-spinner Aminul Islam Biplob spoke to media, saying that there is no question to take the opponent side lightly in T20 cricket, where there is no team ‘weak.’

“There is nothing ‘weak team’ in T20 cricket. Any team can do anything surprising at any time,” said Aminul Islam Biplob. “But we have won two matches on the trot that’s a positive side for us. The way we have played will seek to march forward match by match,” Biplob told reporters. “There is nothing to take them (Rangers) lightly. We will play against them to give our best effort, Inshallah,” he added.
