Comilla Victorians and Rajshahi Kings started their season in the opposite manner – the Victorians won their first game before losing their second by a huge margin while Rajshahi bounced back from a huge defeat with a clinical win. The batting performances have been a worry for the Victorians while their bowling looks settled. Rajshahi too have their flaws but the win against Khulna didn’t expose any of those.

Comilla Victorians will miss their captain Steve Smith for the next two matches at least. The Australian batsman caught up an elbow injury during the first two matches where he scored 16 and 0 respectively. He will be in Sydney for a check-up and is likely to return next week. Smith will undergo an MRI scan and will inform the franchise about his medical status.

Power Picks:

Laurie Evans has a lot to offer on the slow tracks of Dhaka. His playing style suits the pitches where he can anchor the innings and go for big shots when needed. The England batsman averaged 65.64 in the T20s in 2018 where he scored 919 runs from 24 matches. He scored as many as ten fifties with a batting strike-rate of 137.98.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

The Rajshahi captain Mehidy Hasan will be ideal for one of the multipliers given the high chances that he bats in the top order. Shahid Afridi has been the Victorians’ best players in both the games.
