RAN vs SYL T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Qualifier BPL 2023
Rangpur Riders and Sylhet Strikers go head to head in the Qualifier 2 of the 2022-23 Bangladesh Premier League on Tuesday evening in Mirpur. The Riders beat Fortune Barishal in Sunday’s Eliminator with the Strikers losing to Comilla Victorians in Sunday’s Qualifier 1. The match begins at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at 19:00 local time.
The Riders have had an excellent second half to the 2022-23 BPL and have recruited well over recent weeks. They will be full of confidence ahead of this match.
Sylhet Strikers were the leading side across the group stage but have struggled a little over recent games. However, they still have plenty of talented players with both bat and ball.

This is still a good batting wicket and whoever bats first in this game will want to make a total of at least 170. Pace bowlers have had the most success in recent fixtures.

Although it will have been up to 26 degrees earlier in the day, clear skies will mean the temperature is in the low 20s and high teens across this game.
