Abahani captain Tamim Iqbal won the toss and invited Prime Doleshwar led by Farhad Reza to bat first. Prime DSC were struggling at 3-35 inside six overs, but a whirlwind 72 from just 56 balls from Nasir Hossain lifted his team to a challenging total.

Prime Bank Cricket Club led by Shuvagata Hom won the toss and elected to field given the conditions at Mirpur. Kalabagan lost wickets in regular intervals as none of their batters managed to post any resistance to Mohammad Azim and Monir Hossain’s incisive bowling. Both the Prime Bank bowlers took three wickets each to wreck Kalabagan. Mehedi’s 19 was the highest individual score in Kalabagan’s paltry 89.
