All 4 NCL matches end in draw

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka

All the fifth-round matches of the ongoing National Cricket League (NCL), which was affected by the cyclonic storm Bulbul that claimed 25 lives and left a trail of destruction in Bangladesh, have been ended in draws at all the venues across the country yesterday.

In wake of devastating bowling from pacer Rubel Hossain at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, Rajshahi Division skittled out for measly 151 in 50.4 overs, where the bulk of the batsmen failed to cross the double-figure mark except Sunzamul Islam (48), Mizanur Rahman (43), Zunaid Siddique (23) and Muktar Ali (10).

Rubel, who was pale in white dress more than the coloured wears where he has no record whether it is Test or the first class cricket, sparked his glimpse of bowling as he grabbed his career best seven-wicket haul for 51 runs. Rubel has got five or five more wickets four times in his 57-match first class career, where he picked up 93 scalps in his pouch. Later the pacer was named player of the match for his outstanding bowling display.

In reply, Khulna Division fell into Forhad Reza’s devastation and finally managed to score 201 on the board despite Amit Mazumder (59) and Tushar Imran (58). Reza scalped six wickets for 48.

They finished the final day at 191 for seven in 61 overs with Sunzamul Islam making an unbeaten 23 and Shakil Hossain being 17 not out. Farhad Hossain got out for 28 and Sabbir Rahman hauled for 25, while Muktar Ali chipped in with 39.

At Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogura, Rangpur Division made a good fight and took a paltry lead in first innings against Dhaka Division. They restricted Dhaka to 222 after their first innings 234. But they declared their second innings in a bid to triumph the match after scoring 271 for nine courtesy of Nasir Hossain’s indefatigable 161. Later, Nasir was adjudged player of the match for his batting performance.

Dhaka didn’t take any risk and were batting in circumspect mood. They finished the day at 176 for four in 63 overs. Roqibul Hasan, who made 67 in first innings, was stranded at 80 not out.

Elsewhere at Shaheed Kamruzzaman Stadium in Rajshahi, Sylhet Division replied well against Dhaka Metro as they mustered 351 thanks to Amite Hasan’s 125 in response to Metro’s declared 311 for eight riding on Shamsur Rahman’s 114. Sylhet captain Alok Kapali though clubbed 32 touched a domestic rare milestone. Kapali, who was six runs shy of his feat, touched a 9000-run milestone in first class cricket as the first Bangladesh cricketer.
