Comilla Victorians will take on Barisal Bulls in the final of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2015 at the Sher-e-Bangla International Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.
Victorians reached the final of the BPL 2015 with ease and they will now be eyeing to lift the coveted trophy on Tuesday. Bulls fought their way to book a place in the final of the BPL. They had to take on Dhaka Dynamites in the Eliminator. Dynamites were outplayed by the Bulls. As a result, they got a chance to take a shy at the big final.
Barisal Bulls had to play the loser of the first qualifier Rangpur Riders. The latter was low on morale and Bulls took advantage of that. But one must know that it was not an easy game. It was a very close game as it went down to the wire. Bulls pulled off a scintillating victory by five wickets and three balls to spare.
Lendl Simmons of Rangpur Riders became the top scorer with 73 runs, but his innings went in vain. Simmons ended up being on the losing side. Kevon Cooper was the best amongst the Bulls bowlers. Cooper picked up four wickets in his spell of four overs. He proved to be a little expensive but at the end of the day what matters is how many scalps one can add to their name.
Sabbir Rahman turned on style as his fiery innings of 79 runs from just 49 balls. Rahman's innings was decorated with seven boundaries and three sixes. Shahriar Nafees also added to the cause with his innings of 44 runs, while chasing down a total of 161 runs.
Now, it is time for the big final. The players from both the sides will have to be at their sublime best to clinch that trophy. Both the sides have a lot in common when they take the field and that is exactly what is going to make this encounter a scintillating one.
