After a sensational win over Sylhet Strikers in their last match, Fortune Barishal (FBA) will take on Khulna Tigers (KHT) in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). Meanwhile, despite the win, Barishal have a lot of room for improvement. Their bowling remains a major concern as the likes of Nayeem Hasan, Richard Ngarava, and Rejaur Rahman Raja are yet to prove a point. The batters, however, have done a good job as Ahmed Shehzad and Mahmudullah were terrific in the last match.
When it comes to Khulna, the Anamul Haque-led side are unbeaten in the competition. The skipper himself is in great form, scoring a half-century in the last match against Durdanto Dhaka while Mohammad Nawaz was sensational with the ball, picking three wickets. They will be much more relaxed before challenging Barishal in the competition.

FBA vs KHT Probable Best Performers:
Probable Best Batter: Mushfiqur Rahim
Veteran cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim has been exceptional in the BPL. In five matches so far, the 36-year-old has smashed 202 runs at a strike rate of 133.77. He has been a force to reckon with for Barishal and is currently the leading run-scorer for the tournament.
Probable Best Bowler: Mohammad Nawaz
Mohammad Nawaz has five wickets to his name in just two matches. The spinners are likely to get some advantage from the surface and because of the same, the Pakistan international can prove to be dangerous.
