The 18th match of Bangladesh Premier League where Sylhet Sixers will be playing their second home match to take on Rangpur Riders on Wednesday. Sylhet Sixers started their home match with the huge disappointment they were managed to score only 68 runs for the loss of 10 wickets in just 14.5 overs, here three out of top five batsmen got out for a duck against Comilla. The only middle-order batsmen Alok Kapali who played an excellent knock by scoring 33 runs when other batsmen struggled to score on the spin friendly pitch. By looking at the wicket we can expect one change in the team Sandeep Lamichhane coming in the expense of one foreign player.
Defending Champions Rangpur Riders are searching for their second win in this tournament. They are on continuous two loosing strike where they have managed only two wins out of five outings. If the things are not improved they might struggle to get into the playoffs. To get into the winning way, the batting department will rely on the onus of Chris Gayle who is just one game away from a big knock might be this match and in-form Rilee Rossouw. In the bowling department, Mashrafe Mortaza and Shafiul Islam are favourites to pick wickets. As Ravi Bopara failed to perform in the last two matches we can expect him to be replaced by AB de Villiers.
