Comilla Victorians have also followed the smart strategy of filling their batting with overseas talent and then supplementing it with the best Bangladeshi bowlers. Of course, not all the leading batsmen are overseas but the batting tends to be the weak link in most BPL squads so beefing it up is a good idea.
Most notable are Faf du Plessis, Cameron Delport, Liton Das and Moeen Ali. Because of their familiarity with the conditions, they should be able to supply the Comilla Warriors with runs in most matches. Ali is the most dangerous batsman in this lineup, and his ability to attack spin from the first ball he sees will be a huge advantage.
Mustafizur Rahman and Sunil Narine are the two bowlers that will lead the attack for the Comilla Victorians. When playing on the slow Bangladeshi surfaces, Mustafizur Rahman is one of the best in the world. Sunil Narine is not as effective at picking up wickets anymore but he is still able to keep the runs down and his batting is an added bonus as well.
A lot will depend on the local players that find a place in the playing eleven as well and that is where the Comilla Victorians will look for some new talent to raise their hand.

Tanvir Islam, Mominul Haque, Shohidul Islam, Nahidul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, C Delport, and Imrul Kayes are just a few of the many names on this list that deserve mention.
From a roster perspective, the Sylhet Sunrisers appear to be the weakest team in the BPL 2022 season. They can outperform expectations and do so frequently in T20 cricket, but even before either team has faced a ball in this tournament, it’s clear why they’re the underdogs in this match.
Lendl Simmons and Colin Ingram are the two most important hitters for the Sylhet Sunrisers. Both of them have the potential to be destructive, but they are also approaching the end of their careers. In their prime, they had a much shorter period of poor scoring, but the Sylhet Sunrisers appear to be willing to take that risk. At their very best, they’re still exceptional batsmen.
After these two matches, we’re concerned that our batting depth isn’t strong enough to compete in most games. Mohammad Mithun and Anamul Haque are the two best Bangladeshi batsmen in the squad, but we don’t regard either of them highly.
It’s safe to say that all three bowlers are going to be part of the team’s bowling lineup. They’re all great bowlers, but Taskin, in particular, can be very pricey to acquire. It is hoped that the Sylhet Sunrisers’ pool of local players will produce some slow bowling sticks, and that the fast bowling is taken care of.
This team’s balance and composition are both unfavourable to us.
