E-mail Print

Khulna Royal Bengals Vs Rangpur Riders In a close match Khulna Royal Bengals beat Rangpur Riders by nine runs in their 5th match and made the point table interesting and open for all.
Playing in front of a packed Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium, Shahriar Nafees helped set up a competitive total on a pitch that was too slow for big hits before Shapoor Zadran rocked the top order of the opposition. Khulna's Nafees batted like a captain should, taking responsibility of an innings that lacked direction. Nafees scored 53 off 50 balls with five boundaries and two sixes, and added 70 runs for the fifth wicket with Harris, who stayed unbeaten on 48. Haris provided the final push to take his team to 150.
The fightback made for excellent viewing too, as the Royal Bengals made 106 runs in the last 10 overs, after struggling for 44 for 4 in the first 10. Zadran, the Afghanistan left-arm fast bowler, bowled a mean spell to take three wickets in his first two overs, while Daniel Harris kept things tight with his medium pace.
Chasing a total of 151 to win Rangpur Riders Nasir Hossain continued his good form, but was the only batsman to put up a fight, hammering 70 off 49 balls with seven fours and two sixes. He found some support from Dimitri Mascarenhas, who was foxed by Sanjamul Islam to hand back the advantage to the Royal Bengals after their 33-run sixth wicket stand. Shapoor Zadran took 3 wickets for 21.
