Abahani thump sorry Mohammedan

Abahani Limited crushed arch-rival Mohammedan Sporting club by a record margin of 260 runs in the Super League phase of the Dhaka Premier League yesterday.

Elsewhere, Legends of Rupganj yesterday jumped to the top of the standings, courtesy a magnificent unbeaten hundred by Indian recruit Pawan Negi, as they beat Victoria Sporting Club by two wickets.

In the other match of the day, Prime Bank Cricket Club registered a comfortable six-wicket win over Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club in accordance with the Duckworth-Lewis method.

Abahani v Mohammedan

Mohammedan suffered the highest margin of defeat in the history of Bangladesh's domestic cricket after Abahani posted a record DPL score of 371/5 in 50 overs, riding on centuries from Liton Kumar Das and Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik, along with a blistering half century by Shakib al Hasan.

In reply, Mohammedan were bundled out for just 111 in 24 overs with Shakib bagging five wickets for the Sky Blues to seal a comprehensive win at the BKSP-3 ground.

Earlier, Abahani lost their captain Tamim Iqbal (22) and the in-form Nazmul Hossain Shanto (seven) quickly but Liton, along with Karthik, added 162 runs for the third wicket after being asked to bat first. Liton smashed his highest DPL score of 139 from 125 balls with 18 fours and a six while Karthik scored a 97-ball 109, featuring 11 fours and four sixes, on his DPL debut.

Shakib struck some lusty blows at the end, scoring a brisk 57 off just 24 balls, with the help of two fours and five sixes.

Rupganj v Victoria

At the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali stadium in Fatullah, Rupganj made a brilliant chase, riding on a scintillating undefeated century by Negi after Victoria posted a challenging 258, thanks to fifties from Mominul Haque (82) and Al Amin (63).

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bagged three while Negi, along with Abu Haider, picked up two wickets each.

In reply, Rupganj were in all sorts of trouble and at one stage were reeling on 83/6 inside 23 overs.

Mohammad Mithun started well, stroking four boundaries in the first over bowled by Kamrul Islam Rabbi but was dismissed after scoring 17. He was soon followed by Nahidul Haque (seven), Sajjadul Haque (four) and Soumya Sarkar, who played 50 balls for his 28 runs.

However, left-hander Negi, along with captain Mosharraf Hossain (41), added 148 runs for the seventh wicket and the partnership eventually proved to be the difference between the two sides. Mosharraf was soon dismissed but Negi was rock solid at the other end, manufacturing some delightful shots en route to reaching the hundred in just 77 balls.

The 23-year old was unbeaten on 124 off just 89 balls with 13 fours and four sixes, including the match winning six over mid-wicket off Chaturanga de Silva, who picked up five wickets.

Prime Bank v Doleshwar

At the Sher-e-Bangla National stadium, Doleshwar posted a modest 100/6 in 33 overs in what was a rain-interrupted game.
