Cumilla Warriors will take on Sylhet Thunder in the 35th match of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019. The match will take place on Tuesday, January 7 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. It will commence at 1:00 PM (IST).
Cumilla Warriors, who began well initially, lost their way into the tournament as it progressed. They have managed to win 4 and lose 5 out of the 9 games they have played. Their last game came against Sylhet Thunder, which turned out to be an absolute thriller as the game went into the Super Over. Chasing 8 in the Super Over, the Warriors edged past the Thunder with a ball to spare. They are currently placed at the fifth position in the points table with 10 points to their name. It's a must-win game for them in order to stay alive in the tournament.
On the other hand, Sylhet Thunder couldn't have asked for a worse tournament as they have won only 1 game out of the 11 they have played so far. They were beaten by Rajshahi Royals in their last fixture by 6 wickets. The Thunder would like to register a win in this fixture to end their campaign on a good note. Let's have a look at the squads and Dream11 prediction.
