Rajshahi Royals Team News & Playing 11
Rajshahi Royals had a good outing with both bat and ball in their BPL 2019 campaign opener against Dhaka Platoon. Hazratullah Zazai, Liton Das and Shoaib Malik all made fine contributions and the top three will be expected to fire again. Hazratullah showed good form in his knock of 56 not-out while Andre Russell will be the danger man in the middle order. The latter was also outstanding with the ball, conceding just eight runs off his three overs. Ravi Bopara returned figures of 1-15 from three overs and the Royals will want him to deliver a similar performance in this match.

Sylhet Thunder Team News & Playing 11
Sylhet Thunder displayed a good batting performance in their last match against Chattogram Challengers where they posted 162 while batting first. Mohammad Mithun played a stellar knock of 84 not-out from 48 balls albeit it all went in vain. Johnson Charles looked promising in his 23-ball 35 and both these batsmen will be expected to carry that form into this match. The Thunder, however, were found wanting in the bowling department. Nazmul Islam was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-23 from three overs. But the team will also need Ebadot Hossain, Sohag Gazi and Krishmar Santokie to step up.
