Dhaka Div. vs Khulna Div
Mehedi Hasan Miraz took seven wickets for just 24 runs in 11.4 overs as Khulna Division bowled out Dhaka Division for just 113 runs in the National Cricket League at the BKSP Groud 3 in Savar.
While Miraz went through the Dhaka batting line up with seven wickets, it was Mustafizur Rahman who made the early inroads with the important wicket of Rony Talukdar, who nicked the left armer through to the wicket-keeper.
Rakibul Hasan, who top top-scored for Dhaka with 28 runs had started to rebuild the Dhaka innings along with Shuvagata Hom after a stuttering start from Dhaka but Mehedi ensured that there was no real recovery as he removed both batsmen in the 22nd and the 27th over respectively.
