Fortune Barishal was excellent in BPL 2021-22 edition. They dominated the league stage. In the league stage, they won 7 out of 10 games.
One game was abandoned due to rain, and one point was handed to each team. Hence, they lost only two games in the league stage. These losses came against Comilla Victorians and Minister Dhaka.
With 15 points, they were at the top of the point table heading into the playoffs. They defeated Comilla Victorians in the qualifier and made it into the final. They faced Comilla Victorians again in the final, but they didn’t get the last laugh this time.

Fortune Barishal BPL 2023 Predictions
It is evident from the previous season that Barishal team owners have a keen interest in West Indian legends. Hence, there is a strong possibility that the team will feature some of them.
On the other side, the team needs some quality, fast bowlers in their lineup, along with Alzarri Joseph. Hence, they will most likely go with some young pacer for Pakistan because Pakistani players showed their availability for BPL 2023.
The Bangladeshi openers and captain Shakib will stay with the team because there is no reason to leave the team emerging from any side.
Fortune Barishal has shown some interest in signing Pakistani pacer Muhammad Husnain in case he does not play BBL.
However, two other fast bowlers, Shahnawaz Dahani and Muhammad Wasim are still available because no other team has shown an interest in them.
The team has quality spin bowling and good batting, but there is always a margin for improvement. It was all from our Fortune Barishal Team Predictions.
