Shykat Ali and Nurul Hasan Sohan played remarkably well with the bat to guide Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club to the first win of the Super League match in Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division Twenty20 Cricket League on Sunday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Sheikh Jamal won the toss and sent Prime Bank Cricket Club to bat first, who posted 164 for three in 20 overs. In reply, Sheikh Jamal scored 165 for three in 18.1 overs and won the game by seven wickets at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Despite losing the opener Mohammad Ashraful for only five, Shykat led the charge hitting 60 off 36 balls with six fours and three sixes.
In the second-wicket stand, Shykat and Imrul Kayes added 100 runs, with Imrul scoring 44 off 40 balls with two fours and as many as sixes.
Along the way, Shykhat hit his fifty off 28 balls with a six, which eventually earned him the player of the match award.
In the last 30 balls, Sheikh Jamal needed 48 runs.
Sohan hit 44 off 17 balls with four sixes and two fours to end the remaining job for his team. Sheikh Jamal eventually ended up the game with 11 balls to play, with Sohan and Tanbir Hyder remained unbeaten for 44 and seven respectively.
Earlier, Mohammad Mithun scored 67 off 42 balls with seven fours and two sixes. Raqibul Hasan was the second-highest runs-getter for Prime Bank.
The first match of the Super League— between Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club and Gazi Group Cricketers— which was scheduled to take place on Sunday morning, was washed out due to the rain. This match is now set to take place on June 22 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
