Gazi Group Chattogram cruised to the final of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup by defeating Beximco Dhaka comprehensively with seven wickets margin during the second qualifier match at Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla national cricket stadium on Tuesday.

Chasing a lowly total of 117, Chattogram reached their target with ease and was in control throughout the run chase.

In-form opening pair Soumya Sarker and Liton Kumar Das gave them another good start in the as they put 44 runs in the first wicket before Soumya got out in the last ball of seventh over.

Soumya Scored 27 with five boundaries. Liton then formed a 57-run partnership with skipper Mohammad Mithun and navigated the ship closer to home.

Both Liton (40) and Mithun (34) got out before Chattogram reached their target but Shamsur Rahman and Mosaddek Hossain guided them to shore with five balls to spare.

 Earlier, Dhaka skipper Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and elect to field first.

But a dismal batting performance from Dhaka batsmen put them into trouble as they post only 116 runs on the board in a relatively good batting track.

Dhaka made a surprising call in the very beginning of their innings as they sent all-rounder Muktar Ali to open the innings in place of in-form Mohammad Naim Sheikh with Sabbir Rahman.

That move backfired for Dhaka as their openers did not seem comfortable against controlled bowling of Chattogram bowlers.

Sabbir was the first batsman who got out in the fifth ball of third over scoring a run-a-ball 11. Makeshift opener Muktar (7) also followed him just two deliveries later when he was caught at cover in the third over.

Dhaka’s situation got worse with the fall of Naim (12) in the ninth over. Onus was on crucial partnership in the middle order between Mushfiqur Rahim and Yasir Ali as these two have saved Dhaka quite a few times in the tournament.

But Mushfiq got out in the 14th over scoring 25 runs from 31 deliveries and in the end Dhaka failed to turn around from their poor start. 

Yasir and Akbar Ali scored 24 and 25 respectively in late middle order but that was not enough to post  a competitive total as Dhaka were bundled out in the last ball of the innings with an inadequate total. 

Chattogram pacer Mustafizur Rahman continued his brilliant form with the ball as he took three wickets, taking his tally to 21 from nine matches and was adjudged man of the match.
