Khelaghar bag fourth win in DPL
Khelaghar Samaj Kalyan Samity registered their fourth win in the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League 2017-18 season Sunday. They defeated Brothers Union by three wickets in Fatullah’s Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Cricket Stadium to rise to sixth position in the points table. Shinepukur Cricket Club jumped to third after edging Legends of Rupganj by one wicket in a thriller at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka. Kalabagan Krira Chakra on the other hand went third from bottom after defeating Agrani Bank Cricket Club by five wickets at BKSP. Khelaghar v Brothers Asked to bat first, Brothers were bundled out for 187 in 46 overs with Bangladesh U-19 seamer Hasan Mahmud bagging three wickets. Brothers captain Alok Kapali made 66 off 83 balls, featuring half a dozen fours and a six, to ensure his side had something to defend. In reply, Khelaghar nearly made a mess of their low target but eventually reached their destination in 49.3 overs, Indian recruit and player of the match Ashok Menaria scoring the highest 55 for his side. His 77-ball knock was composed with three boundaries and an over boundary. Shinepukur v Rupganj Newcomer Shinepukur continued their impressive season as they notched their fourth victory. Invited to take first guard, Rupganj posted 268 losing three wickets in their stipulated 50 overs, opener Mohammad Naim (93 off 130 balls) and No 4 batsman Parvez Rasool (88 off 66 deliveries) adding 97 for the third wicket. Naim smashed eight fours and a sixer while Rasool struck 11 boundaries and a couple of sixes. Shinepukur did reach their target, but only in the last ball of the 50th and final over. Young opener Shadman Islam led the way with a 116-ball 95, studded with eight fours. He was ably supported by Indian cricketer Uday Kaul, who made 61 off 70 deliveries, with four fours and a six. Mohammad Shahid’s three wickets went in vain for Rupganj. Agrani Bank v Kalabagan Asked to bat first, Agrani Bank posted 252 for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 50 overs, opener Shahriar Nafees falling one short of a well deserved century. Shahriar made 99 off 125 deliveries with the help of 14 boundaries and an over boundary. Young opener Azmir Ahmed scored 58 off 66 balls, featuring five fours and three sixes, and alongside Shahriar, put up 128 for the opening wicket. Kalabagan’s Akbar-ur-Rehman took three wickets. In pursuit of 253, Kalabagan reached the shore with eight balls remaining, opener Tasamul Haque and former Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful scoring 106 and 102 not out respectively. Tasamul faced 115 balls and blasted a dozen fours while Ashraful hammered 10 boundaries in his 136-ball innings.
