It was a low scoring affair at Fatullah in a tight match between Sheikh Jamal and Shinepukur on Thursday. 

Both teams had a star all-round performer in Ziaur Rahman and Sabbir Hossain but evntually Ziaur shone more, helping his side defend a 106-run total and give Sheikh Jamal a 12-run win.

After being put on to bat first by Shinepukur, Sheikh Jamal were under the cosh on a difficult batting wicket and lost wickets regularly.

Most of the top order batting struggled against the bowling apart from Ziaur Rahman, who scored 41 from 58 deliveries.

There were no other notable contributions and that meant that Sheikh Jamal were all-out for 106 runs in just 35.1 overs.

Shoriful Islam and Sabbir Hossain were the pick of the bowlers taking 3/20 in 7.1 overs and 4/28 in 6 overs respectively. 

In reply, Shinepukur got off to a very good start putting 46 runs for the first stand before Salauddin Sakil  and Ziaur came on to bowl.

Wickets started to tumble regularly as no batsman - other than Sohrawordi Shuvo (13) - after the departure of the openers could score in double digits. 

Shinepukur were eventually all out for 94 in just 29 overs and Sabbir Hossain was the top scorer with 26 runs. 

Sakil ended with figures of 4/21 in 9 overs while man-of-the-match Ziaur took 5/23 in 10 overs.
