    Toss: Barisal Bulls (Field)

Tamim

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the 12th match between Barisal Bulls and Chittagong Vikings, of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2016. While Bulls are placed at fourth position, Vikings are stuttering at the bottom of the table. All the same, if Bulls manage to pull off a victory, they will jump either at first or second position (depending on the net run-rate). On the other hand, Vikings have no option but to go for the win and pocket their second win this season, for they lost two of the three matches they have played so far. And if they fail to do so, they will be facing an early exit. Also read: Barisal Bulls vs Chittagong Vikings LIVE Streaming – Watch BPL 2016 Match 12 live telecast online

For that matter, Bulls kick-started the season with an eight-wicket victory against Dhaka Dynamites. But they managed to emerge triumphant in the next two matches, as their bowlers played well as a cohesive unit. However, it was their captain Mushfiqur Rahim who garnered the much-needed impetus, scoring 33 and 81* respectively. And among bowlers, Al-Amin Hossain picked up a stunning three-for in the previous match to clinch a 4-run victory. In the second contest as well, barring Abu Hider, none of the bowlers conceded over 6 RPO. All in all, the Bulls have come good as a team.

On the other hand, Vikings started off their journey on a winning note, beating Comilla Victorians by 29 runs. As a matter of fact, captain Tamim Iqbal scored a spectacular 54. Nonetheless, in the next two matches, the batting unit failed miserably, managing to score only 124 and 123.

All in all, it promises to be a crackerjack of a contest, for both teams will leave no stone unturned to bag another win.
