Defending champions Comilla Victorians succumb to their third straight defeat of the tournament and Khulna Titans reach the top of the BPL 2016 table with this 13-run win.

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: CV 99/6 in 16 Overs BATTING: Rashid Khan 0(1), Sohail Tanvir 6(8): Poor, poor performance by the Victorians batsmen and the ball is in the TItans’ court. Lack of both planning and execution as the batsmen needed to play with patience to reach the required total which was not a huge one.

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: CV 84/4 in 13 Overs BATTING: Marlon Samuels 29(31):After a commendable performance with the ball, the batsmen again disappoint. A lot of pressure on Samuels as he is the only technical batsman left now and will not be able to play his usual game.

  • 9:07 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: CV 51/3 in 8 Overs BATTING: Ashar Zaidi 0(2), Marlon Samuels 6(16): Pressure on Victorians. That was a silly shot by Kayes to go for and he is out after a bit of fireworks. Losing the wicket of Shanto is yet another disappointment. The onus of saving Victorians from defeat is on Marlon Samuels and Ashar Zaidi now.

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: CV 29/1 in 4 Overs BATTING: Marlon Samuels 1(6), Imrul Kayes 15(13): Not an impressive start by the Victorians as they lose Liton Das early. The two at the crease can do it for the team, given the target is not very big. A six and a four from Kayes to accelerate the innings.

    OUT! Liton Das c Kevon Cooper b Shuvagata Hom 8 (5)

  • 8:11 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: KT 144/9 in 20 Overs BATTING: Junaid Khan 0(1), Kevon Cooper 12(7): Brilliant death over by Sohail Tanvir as he gets 2 wickets giving away 3 runs only.

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: KT 124/5 in 17 Overs BATTING: Ariful Haque 3(6), Nicholas Pooran 12(14): The Titans have lost some wickets back to back here and the run rate has come down significantly. They missed a big partnership towardsthe end and in fact no big partnerships were formed in this innings at all.

  • 7:52 PM IST

    OUT! Alok Kapali c Ashar Zaidi b Nazmul Hossain Shanto 3 (4)

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: KT 99/2 in 12 Overs BATTING: Mahmudullah 5(9), Hasanuzzaman 37(28): Mortaza got the team their first breakthrough and he does it again, removing a talented Shuvagata Hom. The captain is out to bat and a lot depends upon him.

    OUT! Shuvagata Hom c Nabil Samad b Mashrafe Mortaza 16 (18)

  • 7:09 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: KT 71/1 in 8 Overs BATTING: Shuvagat Hom 12(11), Hasanuzzaman 24(20): Mortaza give the team their first breakthrough. Fletcher has been sent back for 23 and it is a big wicket. Hasanuzzaman looks set and has Shuvagat Hom at the other end. The batsmen will look to hit hard sometime around the 12th over.

  • 6:52 PM IST

    OUT! Andre Fletcher c Imrul Kayes b Mashrafe Mortaza 23 (17)

  • 6:52 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: KT 36/0 in 4 Overs BATTING: Andre Fletcher 19(15), Hasanuzzaman 11(9): The Titans are off to a steady start with Fletcher and Hasanuzzaman keeping the scoreboard moving with frequent boundaries. Partnership is what they are seeking right now and one seems to be building between these two.

The match will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.The Victorians, who are the current title-holders, have disappointed with their performance so far not winning a single match will be up against the Titans who will be confident coming from a victory in their last match against a strong Chittagong Vikings team. Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2016: Points table and team standings

The Victorians have so far played two matches and lost both of them. The team consists of players like Marlon Samuels, Imad Wasim, Al-AMin Hossaina nd of course, Bangladesh’s limited-overs skipper Mashrafe Mortaza. Things have so far not clicked for the team despite a few scattered impressive performances like good innings from Samuels and Nazmul Hossain Shanto. The team will have to take care of their bowling which has not been up to the mark as compared to the other teams in the competition.

Khulna Titans have had a mixed run till date. Their journey includes two victories and they sit at No. 2 position of the table after their third match but it also includes a shameful defeat where they had put up the lowest total in the history of T20 format. Though the teams lack big stars, they are going on sheer determination. There definitely is room for improvement as both the victories were close saves. Skipper Mahmudullah, one of the most experienced names in the side needs to be in runs for maintaining consistency while the bowling needs to improve.
