To a large extent, Fortune Barishal’s success has been a result of the all-round heroics essayed by Shakib Al Hasan. Though their batting order has the likes of Chris Gayle, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and now Munim Shahriar, who has batted well at the opening spot, everything revolves around the performance of the Bangladeshi all-rounder. Dwayne Bravo and Shafiqul Islam have had their share of noteworthy performances with the ball, including Afghani off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who has chipped in with economic figures.
As far as the Comilla Victorians are concerned for this match, they too have plenty of stars, who could get eyeballs onto them in the must-win feud. Faf du Plessis will be looking to add another power-packed performance alongside the likes of Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Liton Das and Imrul Kayes. Moeen Ali has been impressive as well in whichever opportunities he has received. Sunil Narine has bowled like his usual best. On top of that, the Victorians have Mustafizur Rahman, who has breathed fire throughout the season and waiting to unleash a final set of carnage onto the opposition.
