Indian recruit Shreevats Gowsami hit 75 and Mohammad Ashraful played 64 runs knock to keep the side on course. Parvej Rasool and Asif Hasan claimed three wickets apiece to deal the blow.

Khelaghar Samaj Kallayan Samity produced an upset, beating Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club by six wickets at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, a victory that brightened their prospect of finishing the group phase amongst the six teams.
