Shuktara fires MSC to title

A brilliant all-round performance from Shuktara Rahman propelled Mohammedan Sporting Club to clinch the 4th Women's Club Cricket League title yesterday at the BKSP in Savar.
It was the Motijheel giant's third trophy in the tournament since winning the inaugural event in 2009 and then winning it last year. This time they defeated Gulshan Youth Club by 52 runs.
Batting first, Mohammedan made 158-6 in 40 overs with Shuktara, opening the batting, making 67 off 118 balls with the help of eight fours and a six. She shared a 70-run opening stand with Shaila Sharmeen, who scored 19.
Shuktara was the fifth batswoman out in the 36th over but she made sure her side was on the right track for a winning score. Fahima Khatun's 17 off 16 balls helped Mohammedan cross the 150-mark.
Lata Mondol took two wickets, but her first-ball dismissal in Gulshan's reply was a shock that they never recovered from.
Player-of-the-match Shuktara then took charge, claiming four wickets as Mohammedan rode to an easy victory with Gulshan being bowled out for 106 runs in 36.1 overs.
Lata was later adjudged player-of-the-competition for her all-round performance which includes 240 runs and ten wickets from seven matches.
BKSP's Sharmin ended as the tournament's highest run-scorer with 260 runs while Khadiza Tul Kubra finished with 16 wickets as the top wicket-taker.
