Dhaka keen to forget last match memory

Face Sylhet in first match today
Sports Reporter, Sylhet

Title aspirants Dhaka Dynamites will be keen to leave behind the disappointing defeat in the last match as they take on hosts Sylhet Sixers in their last match at the Sylhet phase of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) today.

The match is scheduled to begin at 2 pm at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.

While Dhaka will come off a defeat at the hands of Rajshah Kings, Sylhet’s gained a momentum with a crushing 27-run victory over mighty Rangpur Riders in their last match. Liton Das reinvigorated his Midas Touch by smashing a 43 ball-70 while David Warner, the skipper of the side showed what he is capable of if he gets going as he smacked 36 ball-61 not out.

But Sylhet are in position of discomfort with their skipper Warner who is heading to Australia to get his elbow assessed after he complained a pain there. A Cricket Australia spokesman confirmed that Warner will complete the Sylhet phase of BPL before leaving Bangladesh.

And with which seriousness, passion and panache Warner played the last game, it hinted he is desperate make a mark before he leaves Bangladesh. In the match against Rangpur Riders, Warner dived full length with his injured elbow for quite some times and even a moment when Sylhet’s victory was ensured. He was such desperate to get runs that he switched to right hand when he was not comfortable against Chris Gayle’s off-spin.

And obviously Warner is the one who could win a match single-handedly, so Dhaka have a tough task at the hands.

But Dhaka who won four matches in a row before Rajshahi halted their winning-march hardly cares about the Warner issue as they would like to ensure that the previous defeat won’t affect their momentum. Though third umpire’s error played an important role behind Dhaka’s defeat in the last match, Shakib Al Hasan certainly won’t satisfied with the way they batted in pursuit of the target of 137.

Dhaka eventually lost the match by 20 runs after being restricted to 116 for nine.  Hazratullah Zazai’s form is a concern as the Afghanistan big hitter suddenly lost his way after hitting two whirlwind half-century in the first two matches. In the opening position, Sunil Narine also couldn’t live up to the expectation while Andre Russell and Keiron Pollard stayed inconsistent. A total team effort in batting and bowling led their superb run in the first four matches before they got a setback.

But Dhaka will be desperate to prove that the defeat was just one-off incident.
