The Naeem Islam lead side Rangpur Riders had a good tournament here but they lost few games in the initial stage of the game and that made them suffer. So far the Riders have played 5 matches and have just lost 2 games and won the rest 5. With 10 points in their kitty, the Riders are currently on No. 4 position.

On the other hand, the Chittagong Vikings are placed at No. 5 position in the points table. They have played total 8 matches and have lost 4 and won 4. The inconsistency has cost the Vikings to lost the top 4 spot. If the Vikings lose this game against the Riders, they will definitely be out of the race to qualify for the knock-out stage of the game.

With so much impetus riding on this match, we can definitely expect a cracker of a game.
