The Khulna Tigers vs Sylhet Sunrisers fixture on Monday is the 22nd match of the BPL 8 and the second of the day after the Comilla Victorians vs Fortune Barishal match.
The Mushfiqur Rahim-led Khulna Tigers are fourth in the BPL table with six points from six matches (three wins and three defeats). In their last match, they defeated Sunrisers by nine wickets with Andre Fletcher winning the player of the match award for his 47-ball 71.
Mosaddek Hossain's Sylhet Sunrisers are at sixth with three points (one win, four defeats and one no result). Their fixture against Fortune Barishal on Friday was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.
Both sides are yet to win the league. Tigers were the finalists last season, losing the final to Rajshahi Royals, who are not defending the title. Sunrisers' best was a third-place finish in 2013. Last season, they finished last.
Khulna Tigers lead Sylhet Sunrisers 4-2 in the head-to-head record, including two wins in the last two meetings.
