Second of the doubleheader on the second day of the New Year will see the 30th game of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2019-20 to be played between Sylhet Thunder and Cumilla Warriors at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
Sylhet Thunder is on the verge of getting knocked out of the playoff race as they lost seven of the eight matches they played thus far. Their lone win came against the Khulna Tigers that too by a huge 80-run margin. Thunder posted 232/5 in that match with help of Andre Fletcher’s hundred. The tournament now moves to Sylhet for three days where the Thunder plays three matches. Alongside winning their remaining four matches, the Sylhet franchise needs to hope many other results to go in their way.
On Thursday night, they will be up against Cumilla Warriors who with three wins (6 points) out of the eight games are currently placed at No.5 in the points table. They are coming off on a high with a victory in their last match on the last day of 2019. Dawid Malan and Soumya Sarkar are in fine form with the bat while Mujeeb Ur Rehman has been excellent with the ball with an economy of 5.16 in BPL 2019-20.
