Mashrafe Bin Mortaza claimed 4-38 which was complemented by Indian recruit Chirag Jani's 72 as Legends of Rupganj recorded a hard-fought two-wicket victory against Khelaghar Samaj Kallayan Sangstha in the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) on Wednesday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Chirag Jani also bagged 3-51 in bowling to help Mashrafe and wrap up Khelaghar innings for 198 in 48 overs. Amit Mojumdar was the top-scorer with 59 while Hasanuzzaman made 29.
Despite getting a smaller target to chase, Rupganj stumbled, losing two openers cheaply but Chirag held together the innings. However despite his effort, the middle order crumbled in pressure.
Chirag kept his cool and found a support in Tanbir Haider. Together they played with caution and aggression to help Rupganj race to the victory with three balls to spare. Chirag hit seven fours and two sixes for his 78 ball-72 while Tanbir was not out on 51.
