Plays of the day: Mithun's lone battle, Soumya's poor form and Khulna's successful chase in first try
Rajshahi Kings v Rangpur Riders Mithun fights a lone battle Mohammad Mithun has been in terrific touch with the bat for Rangpur in the ongoing fourth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20. The wicketkeeper-batsman once again shone, this time against Rajshahi. His unbeaten 36-ball 64 though went in vain as his side eventually fell short by 12 runs chasing 163. With that said, the 26-year old tried his best till the end to guide his side to the winning line as he smashed four sixes and three fours. He hardly received any support from the other batsmen and thus, Rangpur suffered their second defeat in BPL 4. Mithun scored 12 not out, 15 not out, nought, 62, 45 not out, 49 not out and 64 not out in seven games at a staggering average of 123.50.

The stylish left-hander once again failed to score significantly, this time against Rajshahi. The 23-year old came in to bat No 4 yesterday in order to change his fortune. But even that did not help Soumya as he was cleaned up by left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam after scoring only eight runs. Without a doubt, he will be desperate to return to run-scoring ways, keeping in mind Bangladesh's upcoming tour of New Zealand next month. Khulna Titans v Barisal Bulls [caption id="attachment_36304" align="aligncenter" width="646"] Khulna Titans opening batsman Hasanuzzaman was desperately unlucky as he was dismissed off an unplayable delivery against Barisal Bulls COURTESY[/caption] Hasanuzzaman’s dismissal off an unplayable ball Probably it was one of those deliveries which a batsman can hardly do anything about when Khulna’s Hasanuzzaman faced Barisal’s left-arm spinner Taijul Islam. It was only the fifth ball of the innings as Taijul bowled a short of a length delivery that hardly bounced before dying down on its way to the stumps. The batsman in question was flummoxed while even Taijul and Barisal captain Mushfiqur Rahim were in total disbelief. The right-hander had no idea about the delivery as it was totally unplayable.

Mahmudullah and his troop have been successful on five occasions previously while batting first in the tournament but on Friday they had to chase for the first time. And they did it with some ease, reaching their small target of 120 with six wickets and eight balls to spare. Khulna have developed a good bowling unit in the competition and successfully defended low totals quite consistently. And it was skipper Mahmudullah who once again led from the front, remaining unbeaten on 36 to seal a comprehensive win.
