Shakib, Mustafiz face off on Wednesday night


Dhaka, May 25: After two clashes in the league stage, IPL’s Bangladeshi stars, Shakib and Mustafiz will now be facing each other in the eliminator.

The duo will square off for the third time this season on Wednesday in Delhi.

Mustafiz’s Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Shakib’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were level on points with second place Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) but their inferior net run rate (NRR) pushed them down to third and fourth place respectively.

KKR won both the matches in the league stage.

However, those wins will come to no good if they fail to beat SRH in the eliminator. As this is a ‘do or die’ match, one thing is for sure; one of the two Bangladeshi recruits in this season’s IPL is surely returning home before the final.
