Penetrative and purposeful bowling from Dhaka Dynamites allowed them to restrict Barisal Bulls to 132 for 6 after 20 overs in the 29th match of Bangladesh Premier League 2016 at Mirpur Stadium today.
Barisal captain Mushfiqur Rahim opted to bat first after winning the toss, but the Bulls made a terrible start and were tottering at 3-37 inside seven overs. Mushfiqur tried to up the ante and managed to score 36 from 30 before he was sent back by Dhaka captain Shakib Al Hasan. Rumman Raees used the long handle to smash 25 from 13 balls late in the innings, and gave Barisal’s total some respectability.
Dhaka skipper Shakib used six bowlers to peg back Barisal today. Abu Jayed, Dwayne Bravo, Ravi Bopara and Shakib took a wicket each. Dhaka fielders backed up their bowlers and inflicted two run-outs during Barisal’s innings.
Barisal Bulls: 132/6 (20 overs)
Mushfiqur 36, Rumman 25, Abu Jayed 1-12
