Abdur Razzak, the most successful bowler in the history of Bangladesh first-class cricket, showed his class yet again as the left-arm spinner picked up another seven-for in the Bangladesh Cricket League Monday. 

Razzak, the 36-year old left-arm spinner, returned with figure of 7/69 bowling 29.4 overs for Prime Bank South Zone but BCB North Zone’s all-rounder Ariuful Haque made 98 that helped his side score 293 in the first day of their final round match at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Chittagong.

With all four teams having realistic chances of clinching this year’s title, Razzak did his part for South, who are at second position with 20.63 points, before the side finished on 21/1 at stumps. 

In the other match at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, East Islami Bank Zone batsmen impressed as they ended the day on 380/8 against the league leader Walton Central Zone, who started the round on 21.87 points.

East v Central 

East suffered a huge blow as their opening batsman Rony Talukdar got out for a duck in the second ball after winning the toss but their other batsmen remained positive to take the onus. 

As many as four East batsmen reached half-centuries but none could convert their innings to a ton, although they scored at a brisk pace of 4.62 runs per over in 82.1 overs before the day was called off due to bad light. 

East’s two national batsmen Mominul Hoque and Imrul Kayes formed a brilliant 136-run second-wicket stand before the latter was dismissed for 78 off just 79 balls. 

Mominul continued his progress and added 61 runs with Yasir Ali, who made 39 runs, but the diminutive southpaw also failed to reach the three-figure mark as he was out for 82.

Central bowlers could cut down the flow of East’s batting onslaught as they got two wickets on the same score to reduce the opponent to 216/5 but Mahmudul Hasan and Zakir Hasan added exactly 100 runs for the sixth wicket to regain the dominance. 

Zakir got out for 57 but Mahmudul remained not out on 74 at stumps. 

Taskin Ahmed, Abu Haider Rony, Mosaddek Hossain and Mosharraf Hossain shared the wickets equally as they finished the day with two wickets each.
