Mosaddek Hossain Saikat’s all-around show guided Abahani Limited to a 45-run win over its traditional rival Mohammedan Sporting Club in the high-scoring thriller of the Super Six of the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) in Savar yesterday.  

By winning the second consecutive match in Super League, Abahani closed the gap of points on points-chart with table-toppers Legends of Rupganj as the defending champions are two points adrift of the leaders. Currently, Abahani chalked up 20 points, while Rupganj 22 points.

Mohammedan Sporting Club to chase the challenging target mislaid three top-order batsmen-Abdul Mazid, Irfan Sukkur and Avishek Mitra inside seven overs to overhaul the gigantic total of 305. By dismantling wicketkeeper-batsman Sukkur among three fallen batsmen, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza touched a 400-wicket milestone in List-A cricket as the second bowler after Abdur Razak. But he slammed the feat first as the fast bowler in the country. The once pace spearhead extended his wicket tally to three unlike Mosaddek Hossain, who was named player of the match for his dexterity with bat and ball.

On-song Raqibul Hasan tried to handle the batting collapse with fellow batsmen Tushar Imran and Mohammad Ashraful. Even though Raqibul did not succeed much with Tushar, he put together a brilliant 128 with Mohammad Ashraful for the fifth-wicket stand that generated a glimmer of hopes to hunt down the target.

But Nazmul Islam Opu deprived Raqibul of his second hundred. The national discard was just four runs away from his credible century. The 31-year-old batsman clattered 79-ball 96 laced with10 boundaries and three maximums before being caught behind.

Ashraful then attempted with Sohag Gazi (run-a-ball 28) and added 41 for the sixth-wicket partnership before his departure. The 34-year-old Ashraful blasted 68 off 85, hitting half-a-dozen boundaries. With the dismissal of Raqibul and Ashraful, Mohammedan’s highs to thrash Abahani blown away as wickets were falling apart at regular interval and finally they were shot out for 259 in 46.3 overs.    

Earlier, opting to bat, Dhanmondi-based outfit’s mammoth total was built around Sabbir Rahman Rumman’s 64, which was aided by Mohammad Mithun’s 56 coupled with Mosaddek Hossain Saikat’s unbeaten 54.

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club broke Legends of Rupganj’s nine unbeaten winning streak as the former eased to a four-wicket victory over the latter in the low-scoring affair at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah.

Spirited Sheikh Jamal jumped to fourth place just after Prime Bank Cricket Club (16), Abahani Limited (20) and Legends of Rupganj (22).

Chasing the paltry target of 172, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club stumbled to lose three wickets for 43 runs. Then Elias Sunny and Tanvir Haider sailed them through with four wickets in hand and nine balls remaining.

Tanvir Haider clubbed two fours and a six in his unbeaten 53-ball 43 with Taijul Islam making 13. Elias Sunny top-scored for Jamal with 58 and was adjudged player of the match.

Legends’ captain Nayeem Islam chose to bat on Fatullah’s track after being triumphed the flip and fell into devastation from pacer Khaled Ahmed, who grabbed four wickets that stayed them from big total. Finally, they managed to score 171 on the board courtesy of Mohamamd Naim’s 58.

Elsewhere at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, Forhad Reza shone in for Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club that thrashed Prime Bank Cricket Club by seven wickets but remained fifth with 16 points.

In the face of Forhad Reza’s bowling onslaught, Prime Bank put on 169 for all out in 48.1 overs despite Alok Kapali’s 61. In-form Reza leaked only 22 runs to claim four wickets in 9.1 overs including two maiden overs.

Prime Doleshwar runt down the paltry target with ease as they lost only three wickets to muster the required 172. Saif Hassan made the highest 55. Forhad Reza was at stumps on 41 with Marshall Ayub scoring 25.
