BCB XI strong on second day

BCB XI saw themselves reach a strong position by the end of the second day of their four-day match against KSCA Secretarys XI in the ongoing Dr (Capt) K. Thimmappiah Memorial tournament at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in India yesterday.

Having starting the day on 135 for three -- 56 run in the lead -- BCB XI posted 334 for 10 in 102.3 overs. Overnight batsman Najmul Hossain, who started the day on 27, scored a team high 72 runs off 125 balls before being run-out in the 70th over. Although BCB XI lost a few quick wickets in the middle, a 77-run eighth-wicket stand between Kazi Nurul Hossain (68 off 87) and Sunjamul Islam (3 off 82) helped the side post a commendable total.

Following the exchange, Secretarys XI ended the day on 100 for three -- trailing by 155 runs -- in 26 overs. A few quick wickets by BCB XI today could see Secretarys XI in deep trouble.
