A fine bowling effort helped Legends of Rupganj to a 12-run win over Khelaghar Samaj Kallyan Samity in the Dhaka Premier League’s Super League stage at the Fatullah Cricket Stadium.
No 8 Nazmul Hossain Milon‘s brisk 63, which contained three fours and two sixes, took Rupganj to 216 for 8 after they had slipped to 86 for 6 in the 23rd over. Paceman Mohammad Saddam took four wickets while the left-arm spinner Tanvir Islam picked up three.
Khelaghar were on course for their first win in the Super League phase as they reached 138 for 3 in the 38th over, with Mahidul Islam Ankon (73) and Nazimuddin putting on 84 for the fourth wicket. But Khelaghar went into freefall after their partnership ended, as they lost their last seven wickets for 66 runs to get bowled out for 204 in 48.5 overs. Asif Hasan, Parvez Rasool, Mosharraf Hossain and Syed Rasel took two wickets each for Rupganj.
