Rajshahi Kings captain Darren Sammy won the toss and chose to bowl first against Sylhet Sixers in the sixth match of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet, Bangladesh, on Tuesday.
Sylhet have made two changes in the final eleven. Shuvagata Hom and Krishmar Santokie have been left out for Kamrul Islam Rabbi and Danushka Gunathilaka.
Sixers captain Nasir Hossain says it looks like a very good batting wicket. “We will look for something around 170-180 and then defend it.”
The match got under way at 6pm PST (7pm local time and 13:00 GMT).
Sylhet Sixers have already staged two victories in as many matches while Rajshahi, who lost their first encounter, will be looking to open their account on the point table.
Sylhet is led by Bangladesh all-rounder Nasir Hossain while Darren Sammy will lead Kings.
In the first match of the day, Comilla Victorians thrashed Misbah ul Haq-led Chittagong Kings by eight wickets in a one-sided contest.
