Chattogram Challengers maintained their winning run in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League T20 as they beat Cumilla Warriors by 16 runs at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong Friday.

The Challengers remain at the top of the seven-team points table with 10 points from six matches, while the Warriors are fourth with four points from as many games.

Asked to bat first, the home team posted a commanding 238, losing four wickets in their stipulated 20 overs. Middle-order batsman Chadwick Walton top-scored for his side with a brilliant unbeaten 71 off 27 balls, including five fours and half a dozen sixes.

Makeshift captain Imrul Kayes was not far behind, as the left-handed batsman hammered 62 off 41 deliveries, featuring nine fours and a six.
