Fortune Barishal vs Khulna Tigers
BPL T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 03 Feb, 01:30 PM (IST)
Series: BPL T20 Match
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium – Dhaka, Bangladesh
FBA vs KHT Dream11 Prediction:
- Anamul Haque scored 42 runs from 35 balls at the top of the order in Match 31 and he is our pick for Fortune Barishal’s highest run scorer against Khulna Tigers. With the ball, Shakib Al Hasan has 439 wickets across his T20 career and has an excellent record in Dhaka. We expect him to be Fortune Barishal’s top wicket-taker on Friday.
- Tamim Iqbal has scored two half-centuries in the tournament and the experienced opener is well worth backing as Khulna Tigers’ highest run scorer against Fortune Barishal. Nasum Ahmed was very economical and picked up the wicket of Mohammad Rizwan on Tuesday. He is our tip for Khulna Tigers’ top wicket-taker in this game.
- He had a poor start to this BPL with the bat but his numbers have suddenly gone up. We recommend backing Anamul Haque to score over 27.5 runs in this match.

Weather & Pitch Report:
Sunny throughout Wednesday afternoon in Dhaka. There is no chance of rain and the temperature will get up to 26 degrees in the opening exchanges.
The average first innings score on this pitch earlier in the series was 155-160 and we expect a similar total to be par in this game. There is something in the wicket for pace and spin bowlers.
Overall there is not much between the teams batting first or second on this pitch. However, all the skippers chose to field first in Phase 3 of this tournament at this ground. We predict both skippers will choose to field first.

FBA vs KHT TEAM NEWS:
FBA Team News:
All-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz has not been selected for recent games and we do not anticipate that he will come back into the team for this match. There were a few underperforming players in the last game but we expect Shakib to lead an unchanged XI.
KHT Team News:
Andy Balbirnie and Nahid Rana were left out of the team ahead of Tuesday’s high scoring thriller against Comilla Victorians, a game which saw Shai Hope take over the captaincy from Yasir Ali. It was an excellent batting display but it would be a surprise if Amad Butt keeps his place after conceding 52 runs from three overs.
FBA vs KHT Pre-Toss LineUps:
Anamul Haque (wk)
Shakib Al Hasan (c)
Shai Hope (c)
Mahmudul Hasan Joy
Azam Khan (wk)
Khulna Tigers will still be wondering how they managed to lose after scoring 210-2 against the Victorians in their last match. If they can carry their batting confidence into this game then this could be a very close contest. However, Khulna’s bowlers have not been good enough in recent matches and we expect the Barishal batters to take advantage. Our prediction is for a Fortune Barishal victory.
Fortune Barishal are favorites to beat Khulna Tigers
FBA Key Players:
Anamul Haque –
The keeper-batter has scored 120 runs, double his previous tally from the first seven matches, over the last two games whilst taking two catches. He is in excellent form.
Shakib Al Hasan –
Although he has made successive single figure scores with the bat, he impressed with the ball against Dhaka and took 2-18.
Iftikhar Ahmed –
The experienced middle-order batter is a reliable presence in the side for some quick late runs irrespective of the pitch conditions.
KHT Key Players:
Shai Hope –
The West Indian took on the responsibility of the leadership ahead of Match 32 and responded with an unbeaten 91 not out from 55 balls.
Tamim Iqbal –
The experienced opener took his tally of runs for the tournament past 300 with 95 runs from 61 balls against Comilla Victorians. He is always the wicket which the opposing bowlers want to take.
Nasum Ahmed –
With Wahab Riaz back in Pakistan, the bowling attack looked far weaker on Tuesday. Islam impressed with figures of 1-19 and should get some turn on this wicket.
