Bangladesh Under-23 cricket team thrashed their Bhutanese counterparts swimmingly when the former scripted a walloping 10-wicket victory over the latter in the second fixture of the South Asian Games at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur in Nepal yesterday.

This was their second triumph after resounding 109-run win against the Maldives in the Games’ opener.

Opting to bat, Bhutan were able to manage 69 for seven on the scoreboard in their stipulated 20 overs after which Bangladesh had to play only 6.5 overs to put on the required score what they did without losing any wicket.

Opener Soumya Sarkar toyed Bhutanese bowlers as he smacked boundaries almost every over that hastened to finish the game in 6.5 overs. Soumya, who fell four runs shy of his first fifty in the opening match against the Maldives, became ruthless on Karma Dorji to bright up his fifty. The opener clouted two sixes for Dorji in second over to finish the rudder in emphatic way.

His whirlwind 28-ball innings littered with three maximums and five boundaries to be remained indefatigable at stumps. On-song Mohammad Naim Sheik, who provided an ably support to Soumya, watched Soumya’s blitzkrieg standing on the other end. He clobbered 16 off 13 with an over-boundary. Soumya, who grabbed a scalp and run out wicketkeeper-batsman Kinga Loday after his flamboyant batting display simplified the match referee to judge him player of the match.

Earlier, Bhutan Under-23 Team mustered only 69-7 on the board despite Tenzin Wangchuk Junior (15), Jigme Singye (13), Jigme Dorji (12) and Sonam Tobgay (not out 10). Young pacer Manik Khan grabbed a couple of wickets for nine in his four-over spell. Mehedi Hasan Rana, Tanvir Islam, Minhajul Abedin Afridi and Soumya Sarkar picked up a wicket each for the winners.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh women’s cricket team confirmed their final berth thrashing Maldives in record-marking 249-run victory in the previous match in Pokhara. Riding on a couple of unbeaten century from Nigar Sultana (113) and Farzana Haque (110), Bangladesh piled on 255 for two in 20 overs after which Maldives were folded for just six runs. The Tigresses will face off Sri Lanka, who got the passport of the final defeating the host Nepal by 41 runs, in the grand finale at the Rangasala Stadium in Pokhara on Sunday.
