Dhaka or Sylhet: Mirpur gears up for terrific Thursday
BPL hasn’t been very pleasing so for the spectators who wish to see plenty of boundaries hit. It is true that Gayle has arrived in town, but the lack of big scores has often been the talking point.
However, Thursday will be of close anticipation for the fans of Dhaka and Sylhet in particular. This is because of their respective positions in the table.
Sylhet looked down and out from the start of the tournament. Somehow, they have made a turnaround in the ongoing round in Dhaka. They won a great match against Dhaka today, and if they defeat Comilla tomorrow, their fate would depend on the Dhaka-Barisal match. If Dhaka lose, both teams will have 8 points, and it will come down to net run rates.
This suggests how important each run and wicket would be to both teams tomorrow. Dhaka is at a slightly advantageous position due to their higher net run rate, but a big win by Sylhet might put the pressure on them. However, they would play the evening game, which means they would exactly know what they need to do to qualify.
This is to note that if Sylhet lose against Comilla, or Dhaka win against Barisal, then there would be no need of calculations; Dhaka would directly qualify to the next round.
