Hello and Welcome to our preview for Khulna Titans vs Rajshahi Kings match. We are covering KT vs RK Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the Bangladesh Premier League 2019 match. The match is to be played at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
Khulna Titans have got a very poor start to the season and have lost all four of their matches. They lost their last match to Chittagong Vikings in super over. Batting first, Titans scored 151 runs with Malan and Mahmudullah being top scorers for their 45 and 33 run knock. In defense, Brathwaite and Shariful Islam took two wickets each and were supported by an economical spell from Junaid and Taijul Islam to tie the scores. Junaid restricted Vikings on 12 run but failed to chase the score leading to another loss for them. They will hope to balance their previous loss to Kings earlier this season and open their account or else it will be too late for them.
Rajshahi Kings are fifth on the points table with two wins and two losses. They won their last match against Rangpur Riders by 5 runs. Batting first, Zakir Hasan played an unbeaten knock of 42 runs and was supported by M Hafeez to lead the team to a total of 135. Their bowlers were good in the defense and ensured a 5-run win for the team. Hafeez and Kamrul Islam were the top performers taking two wickets each. They will hope to continue the winning momentum ahead.
