The Chittagong Vikings look to be the stronger of the two teams, both by the members of the squad and their performance so far in the tournament. Their first match was against the reigning champions Comilla Victorians, which they won dominantly. The team comprises of names like Tamim Iqbal, Dwayne Smith and Shoaib Malik while Mohammad Nabi has been a star performer.

Opponents Khulna Titans lack experience in the squad. Skipper Mahmudullah and Alok Kapali are the two most experienced and big names of the side and a lot depends upon these two as far as batting is concerned. Shafiul Islam and Mosharraf Hossain will be the names to watch out for in the bowling brigade. It is up to these players to guide the youngsters and the less experienced ones to fight the strong opponents in the tournament and gather points to end among the top four.
