42nd Match: FBA vs KHT



The 42nd Match of the Bangladesh T20 League will be played between FBA and KHT in Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka, on Friday, 10th February 2023 at 06:30 PM IST. There is a different amount of excitement coming into the last day of the league stage since all four playoff berths have already been decided long ago. However, it does not follow that the interaction is over.

FBA has been dominant in the competition this year and has already clinched a playoff position. However, they have no chance of taking first place. Thus if they want to go further, they will have to compete in the eliminator.

KHT, on the other side, has performed terribly in the competition. They wouldn't have desired this campaign if they had only won two of the 11 games they had played. They want to go out on top and create momentum for the next edition.

FBA is incredibly impressive this season, as they qualified for playoffs with few games spare. FBA's situation could not have been worse after losing the toss and being given the first pitch. They could not gain any momentum to end the game on a solid note after dropping early wickets in the powerplay and then continuing to lose wickets. They did not need a dress rehearsal for the playoffs after being bowled out for 121 runs. The leading scorer was Mahmudullah, who scored 36 runs off of 26 balls.

The bowling section had nothing to defend, yet they could win the match. A quick-fire cameo from Andre Russell to seal the victory resulted from economical bowling and taking wickets at critical moments. Ebadot Hossain excelled, taking two wickets and conceding just 18 runs.

For KHT, this season is something they want to forget forever. They lose 9 games out of 11, but they want to win this game to end their campaign on a high note. After choosing to bat first after winning the toss, they got off to a disastrous start, losing three wickets within the actual powerplay. They only managed to score 113 runs after losing 8 wickets. The leading scorer was Mahmudul Hasan Joy, who scored 41 runs in 41 balls.

The bowling unit had a challenging challenge to contain the opposition, but they got off to a great start by taking 2 fast wickets. However, the target was ultimately too low to be held, and they suffered a terrible setback, dropping the game by 6 wickets. The most effective bowler was Mohammad Saifuddin, who took one wicket while conceding just 13 runs in three overs.
