However, the damage was recovered with Nazmul Hossain Shanto's 83-ball 55. Mosaddek Hossain, who was benched and later released by the Bangladesh team from the second and final Test against Sri Lanka, added 40 to the total but it was Mashrafe who caused the most damage. In his knock, the veteran cricketer struck three boundaries and five over boundaries to lift Abahani’s total to 217 all out in 49.5 overs. Muktar Ali bagged three wickets to lead the Kalabagan attack. Chasing the target, Kalabagan posted 181 in 48.1 overs.
