Super League's key day today

Old DOHS and Victoria Sporting Club have to pick up wins in today's Premier Super League matches but are up against teams that have reasons to keep them at bay.
The Abahani-Victoria game, to be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, promises to be yet another cracker after their rivalry in the first part of the competition. It was a classic at the same venue in which the Motijheel outfit prevailed in a see-saw battle.
It won't be easy for Old DOHS, the league leaders with 18 points, as they take on Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club at the Fatullah Cricket Stadium. Sheikh Jamal are having the better bargain of the momentum scale after they beat Victoria by nine runs in a high-scoring game on March 25.
Defending champions Abahani are on twelve points from eleven games after being defeated by Gazi Tank but the Sky Blues would like to avenge the loss to Victoria back in January which their fans took to heart.
Gazi Tank, who are level on points with Victoria with 16 points from eleven games, take on Mohammedan Sporting Club at the BKSP in Savar. The erstwhile giants are the giant-killers in this year's Premier League, a fine showing for a team that is quite behind in the spending stakes.
Meanwhile, Pakistan batsman Mohammad Yousuf will be playing for Victoria while it is likely that Abahani will go into the game without any foreigners. The former Pakistan captain, who has played 90 Tests and 288 ODIs in a 12-year international career, will add to the batting firepower that includes Shakib Al Hasan and Jahurul Islam.
It will be the second club that Yousuf will be playing for in the Dhaka league after his participation for Mohammedan a few seasons ago.
