History of Khulna Titans
Having taken a look at their team, let us take a look at their previous performances in the tournament. In the first edition back in 2012, the Khulna Titans (then Khulna Royal Bengals), finished the league stage at the second place with 12 points from 10 matches. In the semifinal however, incurred a close defeat against the eventual champions Dhaka Gladiators by nine runs.
In the next season, a colossal drop was seen in their form as they finished the league at the bottom place. With just three wins in their 12 matches, it was no surprise to witness a complete overhaul in the side. Nonetheless, with all of that in past now, it will be exciting to watch them play this year. Let’s see if they can once again reach the top four or not. BPL Khulna Titans team 2017 players list is placed on this page.
