Mahmudullah is one of the top star cricketers who is a little pale. Although the captain of Gazi Group Cricketers was dismissed for just five runs, Tamim Iqbal of Prime Bank Cricket Club and Mushfiqur Rahim of Abahani got runs on the opening day of the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) T20. Mohammedan’s Shakib Al Hasan also contributed with the bat and ball. All three have been the best in the match in the victory of their respective teams.
Shakib’s Mohammedan is sweating to win the BKSP by chasing the small goal of Shinepukur Cricket Club. Abu Haider hit a six in the last over with one ball to spare. After taking 2 wickets for 29 runs with a new ball, Shakib’s team, which played an innings of 28 runs from 22 balls, started the event with a victory of 3 wickets. Abahani, who got a target of 80 runs in 10 overs under the rain rule in Mirpur, quickly lost 2 wickets but was reassured by Mushfiqur Rahim’s unbeaten innings of 36 off 26 balls. So the current champions also started winning by 8 wickets. Prime Bank Cricket Club beat Gazi Group Cricketers by 6 wickets with 18 balls to spare in Tamim’s explosive innings of 48 off 22 balls with 2 fours and 5 sixes in a 12-over match at BKSP.
In another match of the day in Mirpur, left-arm spinner Ilyas Sunny (3/16) bowled brilliantly and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club also started. They defeated Khelaghor Samajkalyan Samiti by 22 runs. Both the morning matches at BKSP have been abandoned. In one of them, Mahmudul Hasan Joy’s unbeaten 6-run innings off 55 balls gave Legends of Rupganj a 161-run challenge for 4 wickets by Old DOHS. But the match was abandoned as Rupganj could not bat in the rain. Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club also missed the chance to win by chasing 127 runs for 8 wickets.
Tasamul Haque’s unbeaten innings of 75 off 54 balls against Abahani also failed. Although he played well, his team could not go beyond the reach of Partex opponents. Left-arm spinner Taizul Islam, who took two wickets with just 12 runs in 4 overs, could not. Abahani quickly lost two openers Nazmul Hossain Shant (2) and Naeem Sheikh (19 off 18 balls). Mushfiqur, who got down to three, did not look back after surviving a strong LBW appeal at the start. He also has a six with three fours in his innings. Shakib, who gave only 14 runs in the first 3 overs, also digested the sixes. Sumon Khan picked up 15 runs from his last over with one six and two fours. Despite losing to Mohammedan opener Abhishek Mitra at the start of the run chase, Parvez Hossain Emon (39) and Shamsur Rahman (24) put on a 54-run stand. After that the team was moving towards an easy victory with Shakib’s bat. But just 13 runs away from victory, the name collapsed. Losing 4 wickets for 5 runs They sit down. The match also froze. Mohammedan finally got rid of the fever with sweat after Abu Haider’s six. After Gazi Group scored only 91 runs for 5 wickets in 12 overs, there was little doubt about the victory of Prime Bank. Tamim does it faster.
