BPL 2017-18 has reached the penultimate stage of the league, the knockouts. After 42 matches, Khulna Titans, Rangpur Riders, Comilla Victorians and Dhaka Dynamites have made it to the top four. Rajshahi Kings and Chittagong Vikings, who made it to the knockouts last year, have missed the bus along with Sylhet Sixers.

Here are the team line-ups for the eliminator and qualifiers  

Eliminator: Khulna Titans vs Rangpur Riders

Qualifier 1: Comilla Victorians vs Dhaka Dynamites

The second Qualifier will obviously depend on the outcomes of these matches. The venues for all will be Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, which has been slammed by several cricketers as poor pitch in the past.
