*Comilla Victorians win* Marlon Samuels 42(24), Imrul Kayes 24(29)

Live Cricket Score Comilla Victorians 29/0 in Overs 10 | Batting: Imrul Kayes 22(23), Marlon Samuels 34(19) : শানদার স্যামুয়েলস ! Seems like Samuels is looking forward to finish it off quickly. 23 runs from the last over and Samuels is on fire. The over looked like 1 6 4 4 4 4. Kayes was dropped twice during his innings and that can be considered the turning point as he is giving the necessary support to Samuels.

OUT! Mahmudul Hasan c Misbah-ul-Haq b Arafat Sunny 11 (18)

Live Cricket Score Comilla Victorians 29/0 in Overs 5 | Batting: Imrul Kayes 15(14), Mahmudul Hasan 11(16): কায়েসের ব্যাট ঝড় তুলেছে। Boundaries are coming frequently. Kayes sends a short delivery for a beautiful six over the backward square leg. Riders need to restrict those boundaries and positively get a wicket by the next over. Once there is a good partnership, it will be hard for the bowlers to get any success.

Live Cricket Score Comilla Victorians 5/0 in Overs 1 | Batting: Imrul Kayes 3(4), Mahmudul Hasan 0(2): কুমিল্লা শুরু করল। A good start from Thisara Perera as he is looking forward to attack directly. The Riders need to get the Victorians bowled out without any doubt as that is the only way they can win with this low score and for that the Victorian bowlers need to perform flawlessly. A good support from fielders is also needed.

*Comilla Victorians’ innings start*

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 82 in Overs 20 | Batting: Abu Jayed 0(1): দারুন খেলেছো কুমিল্লা। And the Riders’ innings ended at 82 all out. The last few overs saw some brilliants acts of fielding. Two successful attempts of run out where one was a direct hit from distance. A good appeal for stumping as well but the batsman survived as he dragged his foot inside at the very last moment. A very disappointing display of batting from the Riders as only two batsmen could register a double digit score. The total seems really easy to achieve for the Comilla Victorians as the Ridershave failed to reach 100.

OUT! Saqlain Sajib run out 11 (8)

OUT! Arafat Sunny run out 2 (3)

OUT! Sachithra Senanayake b Kulasekara 9 (15)

OUT! Mohammad Mithun c Abu Hider b Kulasekara 28 (42)

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 37/5 in Overs 16 | Batting: Mohammad Mithun 26(39), Sachithra Senanayake 5(7):  লাজওয়াব ফিল্ডিং আর বোলিং কুমিল্লা! A really disappointing performance from the Riders. On the other hand, a class act of bowling and fielding from the Victorians. A great attempt from Abu Hider in the last ball of over 16 as he attempts for a low catch. He gets hold but during the process the ball touches the ground and is declared not out by the third umpire. Last four overs to go and the Riders need to go for the big shots now. OUT! Thisara Perera c Imrul Kayes b Abu Hider 9 (12)

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 37/5 in Overs 12 | Batting: Mohammad Mithun 13(26), Thisara Perera 3(8): রংপুর রাইডাইরস গভীর সঙ্কটে। A wrong decision by the umpire had Misbah Ul Haq out for only 6. The ball was clearly pitched outside leg stump but the umpire responded to the appeal of the bowler for an lbw. Al Amin gifted his wicket soon. The fielders are ever active and always searching for run-out opportunities. Comilla bowlers did total justice to Mortaza’s decision of fielding first. 

OUT! Al Amin lbw b Ashar Zaidi 0 (2)

OUT! Misbah Ul Haq lbw b Abu Hider 6 (17)

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 24/3 in Overs 8 | Batting: Mohammad Mithun 8(18), Misbah Ul Haq 3(11): দারুন ক্যাপ্টেন্সি মূরতাজা। Mortaza not letting the Rangpur batsmen relax as he is rotating the bowlers frequently and correctly. At this stage, removing Misbah will be best thing for them and they will be in full domination of the game. On the other hand, Misbah needs to stay in the crease till the end as there is no other experienced batsman after him. Bowlers producing chance as well as Misbah was almost caught in the Mid-off. He needs to take singles and keep the scoreboard going and then try for the big shots towards the end.

OUT! Jahurul Islam c Mahmudul Hasan b Narine 4 (12)

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 14/2 in Overs 4 | Batting: Mohammad Mithun 5(5), Jahurul Islam 0(1): কুমিল্লার কামাল বোলিং। Comilla bowlers have done a great job. Kulasekara doing exactly the same thing that he did in the last match. Got two early wickets within three overs and Riders are in trouble. A maiden over also from Kulasekara.

OUT! Lendl Simmons c Imrul Kayes b Kulasekara 3 (7)

OUT! Soumya Sarkar c Samuels b Kulasekara 5(5)

Live Cricket Score Rangpur Riders 8/0 | Overs 1 | Batting: Soumya Sarkar 5(4), Lendl Simmons 2(2): দারুন শুরু। A chance of run-out and boundary from Sounya Sarkar. Great start to an action packed game.

BREAKING NEWS: Misbah Ul Haq is the new captain for Rangpur Riders in absence of Shakib Al Hasan.

TOSS: Comilla Victorians won the toss and elected to field.

Rangpur Riders team: Misbah Ul Haq (c), Thisara Perera, Lendl Simmons, Soumya Sarkar, MD Al Amin, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Jahurul Islam, Arafat Sunny, Saqlain Sajib, Abu Jayed Chowdhury, Sachithra Senanayake

Comilla Victorians team: Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Imrul Kayes, Shuvagata Chowdhury, Mahmudul Hasan, Dhiman Ghosh (wk), Marlon Samuels, Alok Kapali, Abu Hider, Sunil Narine, Ashar Zaidi, Nuwan Kulasekara

Rangpur Riders are currently on top of the table with 6 points in their hand as they have lost only one game of the four they have already played. Comilla Victorians are not also far behind as they are in the second place with four points. Riders have won the last two games back to back and will surely want to make it a hat-trick of victories by winning this one. The situation is same for the Comilla Victorians as they have also won their last two games and would like to continue their winning streak. READ: Shakib Al Hasan banned for one match in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2015

In the last match, it was the Victorian’s bowling attack that restricted the Barishal Bulls by 89. Bowlers Nuwan Kulasekara and Ashar Zaidi both took three wickets each and made the job easy for their batsmen who scored the required runs with two overs remaining. While the Victorians will attack with all their strength, the Riders face a big blow before the match as their hero from last match Shakib-Al-Hasan have been banned for one match following his misbehaviour with umpire. Shakib emerged as the most runs scorer and bagged three wickets to gift his team the victory they wanted but will be badly missed on field today. It will be interesting to see how the Riders manage to perform without their most trusted warrior, skipper Shakib-Al-Hassan.
