Disciplined bowling effort from Khulna and good fielding effort saw them post their third win

Gemcon Khulna registered their third win in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup by defeating Fortune Barishal comprehensively by 48 runs in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Friday.

Barishal were all out for 125 in 19.5 overs while chasing 174 as they succumbed to their fourth loss in five outings.

Barishal made a good start in pursuit of a competitive total as opening pair Tamim Iqbal and Parvez Hossain put on 57.

The breakthrough came in the second ball of the eighth over as Parvez was cleaned up by off-spinner Shuvagata Hom for 19 off 26 deliveries.

Skipper Tamim was impressive in his 32-run innings but Shuvagata again provided a crucial strike in the same over.

Tamim was caught at long off by Jahurul Islam and that dismissal created pressure on the Barishal batting order which eventually fell short.

Youngster Towhid Hridoy scored 33 in the middle-order but that was not enough for Barishal as disciplined bowling effort from Khulna and good fielding effort saw them post their third win.

Shuvagata and right-arm seamers Hasan Mahmud and Shahidul Islam picked up two wickets each.

All-rounder Shakib al Hasan bowled well and bagged one wicket conceding 22 runs in his quota of four overs.

Khulna earlier put on a challenging 173-run total in their stipulated 20 overs.

Khulna dropped opener Anamul Haque and picked wicketkeeper-batsman Zakir Hasan in his place.

Zakir was promoted to opening as Khulna tried new opening pair with Zakir and Jahurul Islam.

Jahurul though scored just two before being castled by right-arm seamer Taskin Ahmed in the third over.

But Zakir batted brilliantly at the other end and formed a 90-run stand for the second wicket with the experienced Imrul Kayes.

Imrul played an important innings and scored 37 off 34. 

Player of the match Zakir grabbed his opportunity with both hands, blasting 63 off just 42 balls which gave Khulna a good start in the first 10 overs. 

The left-hander struck 10 boundaries before getting out in the 16th over.

Shakib batted at No 4 and scored 14 off 10 deliveries. 

The left hander got yet another good start and hammered two impressive boundaries. 

But while trying to clear the boundary against left-arm spinner Tanvir Islam, Shakib was caught brilliantly by Towhid at the long off boundary.

Quick runs from Mahmudullah (24 off 14) ensured Khulna a good total as they went past 170-odd with a last over four by Shuvagata and a last ball six by all-rounder Ariful Haque.
