Rupganj remain content with runners-up trophy

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Despite winning the last round encounter over Prime Bank Cricket Club and giving a tough fight for DPL title against Abahani Limited to the end, Legends of Rupganj dashed high hopes of clinching their maiden title and pacified with runners-up trophy.

Legends of Rupganj amassed an imposing 327-4 in 50 overs courtesy of Mohammad Naim’s jaw-dropping hundred which was complemented by a couple of half-centuries from Mominul Haque and Mehedi Maruf.

Sent into bat, Legends made a solid start as they scored 129 through their opening stand of Mehedi Maruf and Mohammad Naim that actually based the foundation of the big total. Maruf was caught out after scoring 54.

Naim then shared an invaluable 114 for the second-wicket with Mominul Haque, who clobbered 52. 13 runs later, Mohammad Naim walked back to the pavilion after being played 136 off 130 with 19 fours and earned player of the match award for his batting display.

Later captain Naeem Islam (not out 24), Jaker Ali (27) and Muktar Ali (22 not out) set a steep target of 328 for Prime Bank, who managed to score 239 in 42.1 overs in the face of Mohammad Shohid’s bowling attack. Shohid grabbed four wickets for the winners. Nahidul Islam top-scored for the Bankers with 76.

Elsewhere at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah, Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club trumped Mohammedan Sporting Club by a thin-wafer margin of three runs in the nail-biting thriller and finished third on points table.

Prime Doleshwar’s total of 274 was built around Farhad Hossain’s 89 along with Shykat Ali’s 65 and Saif Hassan’s 55. In its pursuits, Mohammad Ashraful lived up hopes in Mohammedan Sporting Club’s tent with his 76 but their last partnership missed to sail the team through and sustained a three-run loss that dogged them rock-bottom on super league point-table.
