Mushy upstages Perera in thriller

Mushfiqur Rahim's 41-ball 75 took Chittagong Vikings over the line by four wickets in their clash against the Comilla Victorians in the day's second Bangladesh Premier League match.

The right-hander smashed seven boundaries and four sixes and almost single-handedly willed Chittagong to a win. Mohammad Shehzad was the only other notable scorer for Chittagong, with a 27-ball 46, in chase of a 185-run target.

Earlier, Tamim Iqbal, opening the innings for Comilla alongside Evin Lewis, was out for a duck but the latter scored a 34-ball 38. Imrul scored 24 off 21 while Mohammad Saifuddin chipped in with an unbeaten 26.

However, it was Thisara Perera who stole the show at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium with his dynamic 26-ball 74. The Sri Lankan was in rampant form, hitting eight sixes and three boundaries.

He saved his best for last however, when he hit Frylinck for four sixes and a boundary in the penultimate over to provide a huge boost.

Unfortunately, Comilla's bowlers could not do the job in the end and do Perera's magnificent innings justice.
