BKSP stunned Brothers Union as the former bagged a two-run victory in a Dhaka Premier League nail-biter in Mirpur Saturday.

BKSP, a team formed mainly with U-19 cricketers and students, are on a roll as they humbled Brothers en route to their second win of the season.

Having posted 267 losing nine wickets in their stipulated 50 overs, BKSP had the opponent cornered and at one stage, needed to defend 22 off 18 balls.

The job was done amazingly with the removal of five Brothers batsmen.

Indian recruit Chirag Jani was in good touch but was dismissed for 96 in the last ball of the 48th over with Brothers requiring another 16 off 12 deliveries. 

Right-arm pacer Mukidul Islam struck twice in the second last over, thus giving paceman Sumon Khan 12 runs to defend in the last over. 

Starting with a no ball, Sumon conceded two runs off the first two balls as Ebadat Hossain was caught short of the crease in the third ball of the over. 

The next two deliveries went for six runs, including a boundary that crossed the rope after the fielder at the deep dropped the sitter. 

In the final delivery, Brothers needed three to win, which Shakhawat Hossain, on strike, failed to connect, and a desperate run between the wickets saw Sharifullah get run out.

The young BKSP cricketers went into wild celebration as Mukidul finished with four wickets to his name.

Earlier, BKSP, batting first, scored 267 boosted with three half-centuries. 

Shamim Hossain added 71 to the tally, while Parvez Hossain and Akbar Ali scored 69 and 56 respectively.

ROUND 5

Brothers 265/9 (Jani 96, Mukidul 4/62) lost to BKSP 267/9 (Shamim 71, Emon 69) by two runs
