Naeem and Robiul fined
Mushfiqur Rahim and Naeem Islam helped themselves to aggressive centuries but North Zone had to settle for a draw against South Zone, with heavy fog curtailing play to only thirty overs at the BKSP-3 ground.
From their overnight second innings scored of 155 for 3, they ended the game on 341 for 7 in 70 overs. Mushfiqur struck his fifth first-class century, which included five sixes and eleven fours. He was dismissed soon after reaching the landmark.
Naeem made 106 off 127 balls - his 11th ton - with 17 fours before retiring out. Nasir Hossain, the next man in, blasted 50 off 35 balls and soon after weather intervened.
Left-arm spinner Taibur Rahman and seamer Robiul Islam took two wickets each as they battled hard on a docile pitch. Farhad Reza of North Zone was adjudged Man of the Match for his 153 and two wickets in the first innings.
The game between Central Zone and East Zone at the BKSP-2 ground was called off at 3:30 pm due to fog and bad light. The ground is a five-minute walk from the BKSP-3 ground, on the western part of the campus, and was worse off to due to the poor weather.
Shamsur Rahman was given the Man-of-the-Match award for a career-best 267, also the third highest score in Bangladesh's domestic cricket history.
