Plays of the day: packed ZACS, Chittagong choke and brilliant Shahzad
Chittagong Vikings v Dhaka Dynamites Packed house at ZACS It was a full house at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in the port city when the second phase of the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20's fourth edition got underway on Thursday. To add to the excitement of the crowd, local side Chittagong faced Dhaka in their quest to return to winning ways. However, Tamim Iqbal’s side disappointed the jam-packed crowd as they suffered a 19-run defeat. Despite the outcome, around 15,000 spectators enjoyed the game, proving that Chittagong is always up for a game of cricket.

Chittagong bowlers did all the hard work to restrict the star-studded Dhaka batting line-up to 148/9. But once again it was their batting which led to their downfall. In pursuit of a relatively small total on a batting-friendly wicket, Chittagong struggled their way to 129/8 with Tamim and Mahmudul Hasan the only batsmen who offered any kind of assistance. Rangpur Riders v Barisal Bulls [caption id="attachment_34069" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Rangpur Riders wicket-keeper appeals successfully for the stumping decision of Barisal Bulls' Shahriar Nafees DHAKA TRIBUNE[/caption] Brilliant Shahzad behind the wicket Rangpur's Afghanistan wicket-keeper Mohammad Shahzad was magnificent behind the wicket against Barisal. The 28-year took a brilliant catch to dismiss opening batsman Dilshan Munaweera as the ball kissed his bat and was going down the leg-side. Shahzad though intervened, taking a sharp catch off the bowling of Sohag Gazi. He then made three outstanding stumpings to dismiss in-form Shahriar Nafees, skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and Taijul Islam. In total, he accounted for six dismissals. Rangpur’s team meeting after every over It was an intense battle between Rangpur and Barisal with the match going right down to the wire. Chasing 176, Barisal were at one stage going strong, thanks to quickfire knocks from Jeevan Mendis and Nadif Chowdhury. The high-scoring game was all set for a cracker of a finish. And the intensity of the battle seemed to have gotten to both the teams. Before, during and after every over, almost all the Rangpur fielders gathered together for a short team meeting, led by Pakistan superstar Shahid Afridi, skipper Naeem Islam and stumper Shahzad.
