Abahani off to strong start in DPL

Sports Reporter

Abahani Limited got off to a strong start as they thrashed Khelaghar Samaj Kallyan Samity by comprehensive nine wickets in their opening day clash in the first round fixture of the Walton Dhaka Premier League (DPL) at the BKSP-4 yesterday.

Both Shinepukur CC and Agrani Bank made a brilliant start in their maiden DPL journey by surprising their respective stronger rivals.  Soumya Sarkar’s unbeaten 89 geared up newly-entrant Agrani to tame defending champion Gazi Group Crickerters by eight wickets at BKSP-3.  

Elsewhere at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah, Shinepukur Cricket Club also stunned Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club with Shuvagata Hom’s all-round display as the former trounced the latter by five wickets.  

Opting to bat first, Khelaghar Samaj Kallyan Samity made a calamitous start as they lost four wickets in the space of 54 runs following their opener Robiul Islam Robi. Mashrafe was the main destroyer, who got rid of three batsmen Robi, Sadiqur Rahman and captain Nafees Iqbal on the trot. Nasir Hossain later joined with Mashrafe to compound the fuss by removing Ashok Menaria for eight.

Together with Moinul Islam, Amit Majumder attempted to repair the innings and hit 55 runs for the fifth wicket stand that crossed the 100-run mark. Before caught and bowled by Saqlain Sajib, Moinul cracked 43 following Amit’s departure for 37. Khelaghar finally managed to score 154 for all-out in 41 overs.

Mashrafe, Sunzamul Islam and Saqlain Sajib, the trio grabbed nine wickets and evenly shared between them. Chasing the target, Abahani Limited though lost Saif Hassan (39) comfortably sailed through the team with 148 balls remaining. Anamul Haque Bijoy remained at stumps on 86 off 73 with six fours and five sixes.

Gazi Group Cricketers rode on Mehedi Hasan (41) and Shafiul Hayet Hridoy (33) put on 176. Shahbaj Chouhan grabbed three wickets for Agrani Bank. He was ably supported by Al Amin Hossain.      

Agrani Bank breezed through their target in 39.3 overs just losing two wickets. Soumya Sarkar smashed an unbeaten 89 off 122 that laced with seven boundaries and four sixes. Rifat Ullah faced 88 deliveries to make 55.  

Abu Naser and Mehedi Hasan claimed one wicket apiece for Gazi Group Cricketers.

Put in to bat, Prime Doleshwar compiled 188 with Marshall Ayub making 74 and Shahanur Rahman’s 32.

Shuvagata Hom and Sujon Hawlader bagged two wickets each, while Mohammad Saifuddin, Rayhan Uddin and Naeem Islam Jony captured one wicket apiece.

Shinepukur CC chased down the target with the help of Shuvagata Hom (58), Afif Hossain Dhubo (56) and Sabbir Hossain (41).  Forhad Reza, Dewan Sabbir Ahmed, Salahuddin Shakil, Arafat Sunny and Shahanur Rahman took one wicket each for Prime Doleshwar.
