Faf Du Plessis made just two in the Comilla’s first game and will be waiting to get back on the field. He is a prolific run-scorer and strong opener. Even at the age of 37, Du Plessis has shown his ability as a game-changer, and a strong show from him can help Comilla assert its position at the top of the table.
Dwayne Bravo did a good job with bat and ball in his previous fixture. He is still a handy and smart cricketer, and Barishal will be hoping for him to come good as they bounce back from defeat.
Chris Gayle came in for Barishal in their previous matchup and he is likely to be given another game despite an average show. Barring his retention, there are not going to be too many drastic changes in the line-up for Barishal.
Comilla will also retain the same line-up after a strong win in their first game. They have the momentum on their side and will want to run with it as soon as possible.
Comilla comes into the game with rest and momentum behind them. They won their first game with ease and have a strong bowling line-up. If Faf Du Plessis comes well Comilla will find it, even more, easier to assert their position, and are coming into the match-up with odds favoring them.
