Bangladesh T20 League 2024

Final: COV vs FBA



Comilla Victorians will cross swords with Fortune Barishal for the Bangladesh T20 League 2024 final match. The game is set to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Friday, March 1.

The highly anticipated clash between the sides will be a highlight of the 2022 final where COV clinched the title in a nail-biting thriller of just one run against FBA. 

Barishal will enter the ultimate battleground, trumping in three straight games including a significant victory over the title defenders’ Comilla Victorians. 

Barishal’s bowling fortress is hard to breach and had a huge impact in restricting the opponents to low-scoring totals. They will continue to keep their winning trend after beating COV in the recent encounter by successfully chasing 141 runs target with six wickets and two balls in hand.

The Victorians rebounded unexpectedly in Qualifier 1 with clinical performances from Litton Das and Towhid Hridoy scoring 83 and 64 runs respectively. A tough target of 186 runs was chased down in 18.3 overs with 6 wickets to spare. 

Based on the bowling prowess, both sides will be keen to gain control over the game by bowling first in the final match.

Match Prediction

This is the second time these two sides will be competing in the Bangladesh T20 League Final. The Victorians are the most successful franchise with four feathers on their hat with an aim to get their hands on the fifth. On the other hand, Fortune Barishal, the three-time runners-up are expected to replicate a similar performance, like that in the group stage game against the Victorians and clinch their maiden trophy this season.
