Plays of the day: Shahadat's return, Mahmudullah's lone battle and Tamim's brilliant run
Comilla Victorians v Barisal Bulls Shahadat’s eventful return Right-arm paceman Shahadat Hossain Rajib made a comeback to the cricket field, featuring for holders Comilla for the very first time in the ongoing fourth edition. Shahadat would no doubt have been a relieved man after making his return as he was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently. However, a Dhaka court acquitted him and his wife in a case filed over the torture of their 11-year old domestic help. And his return on Tuesday was was quite eventful to say the least. In his first delivery, he was whacked over long-off by Barisal’s Dilshan Munaweera. Two balls later, Shahadat got his revenge as Munaweera was cleaned up by the fast bowler, courtesy a slower ball. Shahadat eventually finished with bowling figures of 1/22 from his three overs.

However, the left-arm paceman has gone missing for Barisal in BPL 4 COURTESY[/caption] Unimpressive Haider Abu Haider Rony, the right-arm fast bowler, was one of the findings of Bangladesh Premier League 3. Owing to his form in the last edition, the left-armer was recruited by Barisal Bulls. But the paceman has been unable to perform according to expectations. He has only taken four wickets in seven matches this season. Haider went wicketless against Comilla as well. Barisal set Comilla a modest 143-run target and needed early breakthroughs, particularly from Haider. But he failed in his pursuit and ended up with bowling figures of 4-0-30-0. Although Haider contributed 16 from just six balls with the bat, it is his bowling which is most required and he has not been upto the mark so far. Chittagong Vikings v Khulna Titans [caption id="attachment_37199" align="aligncenter" width="888"] Khulna Titans captain Mahmudullah once again played a lone hand for his side against Chittagong Vikings DHAKA TRIBUNE[/caption] Mahmudullah’s lone battle continues Skipper Mahmudullah has been the saviour for Khulna in the ongoing BPL 4. Formerly the vice-captain of Bangladesh, the Mymensingh cricketer has led from the front, rescuing his side on many an occasion. He is the third highest run-getter of the tournament, alongside Rangpur Riders’ Mohammad Mithun, with 279 runs in 10 games. Mahmudullah has also been instrumental with his off-spin, bagging nine wickets. His last over heroics with the leather guided Khulna to victory not once but twice. And against Chittagong, he once again stood strong after Khulna were struggling on 38/4. He scored the highest 42 off 39 balls with four boundaries and a six to help his side post a modest total of 131/8. [caption id="attachment_37200" align="aligncenter" width="888"] Chittagong captain Tamim Iqbal executes a vicious pull shot DHAKA TRIBUNE[/caption] Terrific Tamim's brilliant run Chittagong registered their fifth consecutive win against Khulna and their skipper Tamim Iqbal was instrumental behind the success. The hard-hitting left hander remained unbeaten on 66 off 59 balls with eight fours and a six to guide his side to 135, despite regularly losing partners at the other end. Tamim struck his fourth fifty in BPL 4, playing some gorgeous strokes all around the ground. The Tigers' Test vice-captain is now the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 351 runs in 10 games. Undoubtedly his form will certainly inspire Chittagong to qualify for the playoffs, and, who knows, win the title for the first time.
