North Zone trounced East Zone by seven wickets on the third day of their Bangladesh Cricket League match at the BKSP-2 ground in Savar. Taijul Islam, the left-arm spinner, turned the match around with his first ten-wicket haul in first-class cricket, earning him the Player-of-the-Match award.

It left North Zone to score162 with a day and a half to spare. Naeem Islam scored an unbeaten 69 alongside captain Mushfiqur Rahim who was also not out on 29.

After East Zone made 270 with Mominul Haque top-scoring with 94, North Zone replied with 248 in their first innings. Farhad Reza and Suhrawadi Shuvo struck fifties to rescue the side after they were reduced to 99 for 6 on the second day. Nabil Samad took 6 for 69 for East Zone but they couldn't capitalise on the 22-run first innings lead. Apart from Taijul's 5 for 51, Subashis Roy took four wickets for North Zone.

Taijul Islam is doing well,he is a young lad and needs to get more experience.

I think Marsha Ayub is a great player, but can't help thinking Naeem Islam would be better and even Mithun Ali for the Tests against Sri Lanka.
