BPL T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 08 Feb, 01:00 PM (IST)
Series: BPL T20 Match
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium – Dhaka, Bangladesh
KHT vs SYL Dream11 Prediction:
- Shai Hope is averaging 49.75 from his five innings in the competition and the West Indian is our tip to be Khulna Tigers’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Paul van Meekeren took 3-48 on Friday and he is a strong choice for Khulna Tigers’ top wicket taker against Sylhet Strikers.
- Towhid Hridoy scored 85 not out from 57 balls on Saturday and the opener is well worth backing as Sylhet Strikers’ highest run scorer against Khulna Tigers. Mohammad Amir has taken 13 wickets across the tournament and we expect him to be Sylhet Strikers’ top wicket taker in this game.
- With an average of 53.28 in this year’s BPL, we recommend backing Towhid Hridoy to hit over 31.5 runs in this match.

Weather & Pitch Report:
It will be a hot afternoon in Mirpur with constant sunshine from start to finish in this match. The forecast is for the temperature to be as high as 28 degrees.
It has been a consistent surface for this final phase in Mirpur with the majority of team totals around 170. Although there is turn for the spinners, it has been the quicker bowlers who have been picking up the most wickets.
There are very few differences in the batting conditions across both innings and we predict that both captains will want to chase down a total in the second innings of the match.
