Chittagong Kings 120 for 6 (Bravo 48*, Jahurul 40, Sunny 3-23) beat Dhaka Gladiators 107 for 9 (Cooper 3-13) by 13 runs
A parsimonious, wicket-taking spell by Kevon Cooper helped Chittagong Kings defend a modest 120 against Dhaka Gladiators. The Trinidadian seamer took 3 for 13 off four overs to keep Dhaka to 107, and the win helped Chittagong move to second place.
Put in to bat, Chittagong got off to a poor start, losing the in-form Nasir Jamshed in the first over. Jahurul Islam hit a 35-ball 40 to give Chittagong a base, but the batsmen found it difficult against the left-arm spin of Elias Sunny, who took 3 for 23. Dwayne Bravo remained unbeaten on 48 to take the score past 100.
The Dhaka top order made starts but could not carry on. Enamul Haque jnr, the left-arm spinner, chipped in with the wickets of Darren Stevens and the dangerous Kieron Pollard to help Chittagong push for the win. Cooper got Mohammad Ashraful at the top, then removed Mehrab Hossain jnr and Dhiman Ghosh to shut Dhaka out of the game. Only two players passed 20, with Anamul Haque's 22 being the highest.
