The Barisal Bulls are currently in second position in the league standings with six points from four matches this season. The Dhaka Dynamites are fourth with six points from their four matches thus far.
Both sides won their individual matches coming into this contest. While the Barisal Bulls beat the Chittagong Vikings, the Dhaka Dynamites were the better side against Sylhet Super Stars.
The Bulls put up 170 runs on the board batting first against Chittagong despite being reduced to 63/5 inside the 12th over. Thereafter, skipper Mahmadullah dug his side of a tight spot with some good support from Seekkuge Prasanna and Kevon Cooper towards the end of the innings.
Mahmadullah’s 51 off 45 deliveries was an extremely good effort in challenging conditions and the fact that he held fort at one end allowed Prasanna and Cooper to attack the death bowlers. Chittagong kept losing wickets for the entirety of the innings and the writing had been on the wall for a while before they were shot out for 137. Al-Amin Hossain claimed a couple of wickets while Cooper was the pick of the bowlers with three scalps.
Kumar Sangakkara’s classy innings of 75 runs from just 56 deliveries propelled the Dynamites to 166 runs batting first against the Super Stars. Nasir Hossain had also played an important hand in an innings which was otherwise shaped by Sangakkara’s brilliance.
The Super Stars lost their first wicket in the final delivery of the fifth over. Thereafter, wickets continued to fall in regular intervals up until the thirteenth over. Five wickets fell starting from the eighteenth over as Sylhet finished with 132 runs. Mosharraf Hossain was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets while Mustafizur Rahman, Abdul Hasan, and Yasir Shah claimed a couple of wickets each.
Both sides will be fairly confident of their chances ahead of this upcoming match. While the Bulls showed that they can go on to post very good totals even when their top order has malfunctioned, the Dynamites were on top of proceedings from start to finish in their fixture. Expect more of the same from both sides.
