The 41st Match of the Bangladesh T20 League will be played between Comilla and Rangpur on Friday, 10th February 2023 in Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka at 01:30 PM IST. A mouth-watering contest is set to take place between the 3rd-placed COV and the 2nd-placed RR. COV currently has 16 points in the 11 matches that the side has played, including 8 wins and 3 losses. Whereas, RR has 16 points in the 11 matches that the side has played, including 8 wins and 3 losses.

BAN T20 League 2022-23 is coming to the business end of the league stages and four teams have already qualified for the playoffs. SYL has qualified for the playoffs and has sealed its spot in Qualifier 1. COV and RR will fight out for a second place in qualifier 1 and the winner of this match will get the place. The loser will go to the eliminator match and face off against FBA on Sunday.

The second-placed RR's batting line-up has been in good rhythm chasing down totals successfully in the last 5 matches. Their opening batter Rony Talukdar has been their leading run scorer with 317 runs with 2 fifties so far. The middle-order batters such as Mohammad Naim (221 runs) and Shoaib Malik (279 runs) have provided good support with the bat. 21-year-old Afghan batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz will add firepower to the side.

Their side has a solid bowling attack with the likes of Azamattulah Omarzai and Hasun Mahmud have led their bowling attacks so far with 13 & 14 wickets respectively at an economy rate of just 7 RPO. Pakistani gun bowler Haris Rauf brings the X-factor to their bowling unit and has 9 wickets at less than 7 RPO bowling in tough situations for the team. Rakibul Hasan and Mahedi Hasan will take care of the spin department.

Pitch & Weather Report 

here Bangla National Cricket Stadium has been traditionally a bowler-friendly pitch with the pitch slowing down as the match progresses. We will have cool and breezy weather with ideal playing conditions on the match day. Teams posted 160+ runs in the last 3 matches here and the chasing teams chased the totals. We expect to average score to be around 170-170 runs here.

Both captains want to bowl first on this track as the dew might settle down and trouble the bowlers to grip the ball as the match progresses. Chasing is the best option on this pitch as both teams will be aware of the conditions on offer here. Both skippers will look to bowl first in the match.

The maximum temperature will remain at 28°C, with a low of 17°C with 52% humidity, and a light wind speed of 14 Km/hr for the 41st BAN T20 match on Feb 10 between COV and RR. It is going to be a cool evening on the second match of the night at this venue with no sign of rain.

Match Prediction

The 2nd-placed FBA has been inconsistent this season off late with 2 wins and 2 losses in the last 4 matches. FBA relies heavily on the skipper Shakib Al Hasan and hard-hitter of the ball Iftikhar Ahmed for big scores in this fixture on Friday. Rangpur Riders lack experience in the spin department and rely heavily on the pacers. They don't have the firepower of 3rd placed CV on paper. We say RR to come out top on Friday against CV.
