The strikers have won 5 matches and have lost just 1. So, they have the highest points and a good net run rate. That is why Sylhet Strikers are sitting at the top of the points table. Their batting and bowling units are both strong, and it looks hard to beat them.
Sylhet Strikers may also be the first team to qualify for BPL 2023 playoff. But they should keep on doing what they did so far in BPL. Mashrafe Mortaza has led the Strikers team well and they might win BPL 2023.
Shakib-Al-Hasan’s Barishal is right behind Strikers in the points table. Even they have won 5 matches and lost just 1 game so far. So the Strikers and Barishal have 10 points each. However, the net run rate of the Strikers is better so they are at the top.
The Fortune Barishal has played really well in their recent games. If they continue to play well, the qualification status is well within their reach. However, It would a tough battle between Strikers and Barishal for the number 1 spot in BPL 2023.
The defending champions Comilla Victorians are still in the race for the BPL Playoffs. They have won 3 games and lost 3 games. It will be interesting to see how they play their next matches. It has been a season full of ups and downs for the Victorians.
The Captain of the Victorians, Imrul Kayes needs to take responsibility. Khulna Tigers and Rangpur Riders are not far behind them. If Victorians lose a few matches they might be out of the race for playoffs.
The top 2 teams on the table have a slight advantage. They get one extra match if they lose the first one. So, teams will look to finish in the top 2. However, they must look to secure their place in the top 4 first. Currently, Fortune Barishal and Sylhet Strikers look like top contenders for that position.
Tiger has played one match less than other teams. So they have one more match in their hand. But it will be against Rangpur Riders. So whoever will win that match can be number 4 or 3 in the points table. However, it won’t be that easy to cement the place in the top 4.
The contest is going to really interesting between the Tigers, Riders, and Victorians this season. Among the 3 teams, only 2 teams can qualify for the BPL 2023 Playoff. So they must put their best foot forward and look to win all the remaining matches.
