Abdul Mazid made 141 in his workmanlike innings, facing 219 balls and hitting 13 fours and five sixes, before Walton Central Zone were dismissed in 74.5 overs
Walton Central Zone lost wickets at regular intervals, yet still managed to post 282, thanks largely down to Abdul Mazid’s unbeaten 141, during day one of their Bangladesh Cricket League round one game against Prime Bank South Zone Wednesday.
At stumps at Sylhet International Stadium, reigning champion South Zone made 29 runs without loss in five overs, trailing two-time winner Central Zone by 253.
Shahriar Nafees (15 not out) and Anamul Haque (nine not out) will resume batting on the second day Thursday.
Earlier, invited to bat first, the star-studded Central Zone lost wickets in clusters right from the word go.
Both Liton Das and Saif Hasan departed without troubling the scorers after being dismissed by Shafiul Islam and Al Amin Hossain respectively.
Nazmul Hossain Shanto (23) briefly halted South Zone’s charge before being cleaned up by Al Amin.
Marshall Ayub (four) and Shuvagata Hom (11) fared little better as Central Zone were tottering at one stage on 73/6 inside 28 overs.
Despite regularly losing partners at the other end, Mazid kept on accumulating patient runs.
