It would a bit different kind of battles of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) cricket when two teams will combat for the top spot of the points table and the others will fight to survive from their awkward positions at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.

Comilla Victorians will lock horn with the Chattogram Challengers in the day’s first match when Sylhet Strikers and Duranta Dhaka will play the day’s second match.  

 Chattogram Challengers, who are on second position on the table, will take on Comilla Victorians to regain the top spot when the defending champions (Comilla Victorians), who are on fourth position, will certainly go all-out for improving their position.

However, the reigning champions Victorians, who won the title highest four times out of it’s previous eight editions, have every chance to win the hat-trick title after winning the trophy in 2022 and 2023 in a row.

But this time, after a disappointing start with a defeat to Duranto Dhaka, won two matches in a row and tipped off that they bounced back strongly to defend the title but suffered defeat in the next match.

Victorians are now on fourth position after playing four matches, so it would be a vital encounter for them when they will take on the second position with eight points from five matches.

On the other hands, strugglers Sylhet Strikers and Duranto Dhaka will field to get rid of their embarrassed position.

Sylhet Strikers, the hosts of the second round, yet to taste even any win out of five matches they played and just lying at the bottom of the points table when Duranta Dhaka could manage just a win from their previous four outings and earned two points.
