Apart from Ruyel Miah’s heroics, batmen ruled the roost at the other venues as three players scored centuries in as many matches in an eventful day

Sylhet’s young seamer Ruyel Miah set a new record by a Bangladeshi fast bowler as he grabbed eight wickets on the first day of the sixth and final round of the National Cricket League Saturday. 

Apart from Ruyel’s heroics, batmen ruled the roost at the other venues as three players scored centuries in as many matches in an eventful day.

Sylhet v Chittagong 

In the virtual title-decider of tier two, 18-year old Ruyel, who is playing his second first-class match, utilized the conditions of Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra to decimate the opposition as his 8/26 bundled them out for a paltry 106.

With this figure, Ruyel has rewritten the record books as he effaced the name of Talha Jubair, who held the previous record of 8/35. 

Sylhet, who need a mere draw to retain the top position of tier two, ended the day on 186/5, already securing a lead of 80 runs. 

Amit Hasan, who made 55, was the only batsman to score a half-century on a day when 15 wickets fell. 

Khulna v Dhaka 

In the title decider of tier one, Dhaka batsman Taibur Rahman played an important 110-run innings to help his side finish on 273/7 in the opening day at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna.

Dhaka’s opener Uttam Sakar and one-down Shafiul Hayat were both out for ducks but Taibur and opener Abdul Mazid, who scored 66, formed a 129-run fourth-wicket stand to resurrect the innings. 

Captain Shuvagata Hom remained not out on 56 and will look forward to lengthen the innings. 

Khulna’s opening bowler Abdul Halim picked up five wickets with his seam bowling. 

Rangpur v Rajshahi 

After losing the toss, Rangpur lost opener Mehedi Maruf for a duck but Sohrawardi Shuvo made a patient 105 to help his side finish on 263/8 at stumps at Shaheed Kamruzzaman Stadium in Rajshahi.

Shuvo consumed 217 balls in his innings that lasted around five and a half hours and got some support from Ariful Haque, who made 57, as the duo formed a century stand. 

Rajshahi seamers Delwar Hossain and Mohor Sheikh bagged four and three wickets respectively. 

Barisal v Dhaka Metropolis

The 31-year old Fazle Mahmud is a formidable batsman in the domestic circuit but had only one 50-plus innings in the tournament this season. 

However, the Barisal batsman broke his duck as he scored a brilliant 141 to help his side finish on 338/6 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. 

Salman Hossain, who added 128 with Fazle, remained not out on 69.
