Update : 16 Feb 2024, 11:33 PM

Shakib al Hasan continued his rich vein of form, hitting yet another half-century as Rangpur Riders thrashed Chattogram Challengers by 18 runs for their eighth victory in 10th attempt in the Bangladesh Premier League at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong Friday.

Rangpur in the process consolidated top spot and also confirmed the playoffs as the first team.

Fresh from his 31-ball 69, Shakib once again defied his recurring eye problem to blast a 39-ball 62 as the Riders posted 187/8 after electing to bat first.

Rangpur bowlers then bowled in disciplined way to put the side in sight of a facile victory but Chattogram’s West Indian recruit Romario Shephard bludgeoned the bowlers to raise a prospect of an unlikely victory.

However Rangpur weathered the Shepherd scare to restrict the Challengers to 169/6.

34TH MATCH

Rangpur Riders 187/8 (Shakib 62, Shepherd 3/27) beat Chattogram Challengers 169/6 (Shepherd 66*, Pretorius 3/14) by 18 runs
