Ziaur ton sets up big Khulna win

ESPNcricinfo staff

Khulna Division captain Ziaur Rahman's eighth first-class hundred paved the way for the team's nine-wicket win against Sylhet Division.

Ziaur struck nine fours and 13 sixes during his 167, as Khulna ended their first innings at 352 with a lead of 229. Earlier, Dolar Mahmud and Rajibul Islam had notched four scalps each to run through Sylhet for 123 in their first essay.

Sylhet would've hoped for a better outcome in the second innings, but while most of their batsmen made starts, none could produce a fifty. Nahidul Islam and Murad Khan shared eight wickets between them to bundle Sylhet out for 245, leaving Khulna just 17 to get a victory. The side achieved the target in 8.4 overs for the loss of one wicket.
