Sylhet opener Imtiaz Hossain played a brilliant knock, remaining unbeaten on 110 to help his side reach 204/2

Despite a century from Mahmudullah, Dhaka Metropolis could not avoid an eight-wicket defeat against Sylhet during the fourth and final day of the 21st National Cricket League's second round match.

Mahmudullah, one of the key players of the Bangladesh team, resumed the day on 95 with his team in a precarious position and, although he would eventually reach three-figures, he could not stay in the crease long enough to take his team to safety at Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra.

Dhaka Metro, who started the day on 225/6, lost overnight batsman Shahidul Islam for 42 when the score was 250 and when Mahmudullah was dismissed for 111 off 243 balls, leaving the side on 265, they had a lead of 192 with almost a day left.

The last two wickets would add only eight more runs and, Sylhet opener Imtiaz Hossain played a brilliant knock, remaining unbeaten on 110 to help his side reach 204/2.

Zakir Hasan, who scored 71 in the first innings, made another 72 in the second-wicket partnership of 162 which not only eased their chase, but also helped him get adjudged as the player of the match award.

Earlier, Dhaka Metro scored 246 in the first innings after being asked to bat first and Sylhet registered 319 to accumulate a crucial first-innings lead.
