    Live – Comilla Victorians 33/0, 5 overs; Shehzad 19 (16), Kayes 13 (14): Steady start by Victorians. But they need to scale up the run-rate and make sure they don’t take it down the wire. In addition, they have more firepower to come.

    Live – Barisal Bulls 92/6, 15 overs; Raees 4, Haque 2: More trouble for Bulls. They lose 3 wickets in the last 5 overs. However, the track has been unpredictable in this tournament. One day it assists the batters, the other the bowlers.

    Live – Barisal Bulls 65/3, 10 overs; Rahim 18, Nafees 1: The run-rate has scaled down. Brilliant bowling display by the Victorians. They have been greatly disciplined, putting a lead on the runs as well as taking wickets at crucial intervals. Top-drawer cricket, this!

    Live – Barisal Bulls 39/1, 5 overs; Mendis 24, Malan 7: Decent start for the Bulls. Sri Lanka’s Mendis is going great guns. He needs to stay at the crease if his team is to reach a massive total. However, Hossain dismantled Munaweera’s defence with an absolute ripper.

    TOSS: Bulls win toss, opt to bat

MasrafeNomoskar! Good evening! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2016.  This is Match No. 32 between Comilla Victorians and Barisal Bulls and here you will get all the live updates of the game. The match is being played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The Comilla Victorians(CV) the champions of the last season, are lying at the bottom of the table and are out of contention in this season while Barisal Bulls (BB)are at the second position from  the bottom and they too have been knocked out of the tournament.

The Comilla Victorians, led by Mashrafe Mortaza have been the worst of their form in the BPL 2016-17. So far they have played 8 matches in the tournament and have won just one and hence have just 2 points in their account. Their today’s opponents, the Barisal Bulls side which is captained by Mushfiqur Rahim too have been in the worst of their forms. The Bulls have played 9 matches and have 3 out of them while they have lost the rest of. With these three wins, they have 6 points in their kitty.

But all these stats actually won’t matter as both teams have knocked out of the tournament. Their batsmen have failed to score runs while their bowlers have failed to keep their opposition in check.

The last times these two teams locked horns against each other in this season was in the Match No. 6 where the Bulls won the contest by 6 wickets. The Comilla Victorians opted to bat and were restricted to 129 runs in 20 overs which the Bulls easily chased down in 18.3 overs.

Both teams do have good players in the dugout but none of the combinations that they tried working on throughout the season worked for them. Having already being knocked out of the from the knockout stage, this contest will be for the pride as none of the either team will want to bow out of the tournament on a losing note!
