Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Jahurul Islam's counter-attacking 57 set up Duronto Rajshahi's chase before Mukhtar Ali and Ziaur Rahman completed the four-wicket win over Barisal Burners. The win has put Duronto fourth on the table.

Jahurul's 38-ball 57 contained three boundaries and as many sixes but more importantly, it helped resurrect the chase after the openers had fallen early. Jahurul added 44 for the third wicket with Dilshan Munaweera, followed it up with a 53-run stand with Sean Ervine, who made 28 off 20 balls, and then added 28 for the sixth wicket with Ziaur Rahman.

Burners appeared to be in control when 44 were require off the last five overs, but with Jahurul still in the crease, Duronto were not too far behind. He reduced the equation to 11 runs off 7 balls with some big hits, but fell to Azhar Mahmood's slower ball. Mukhtar, an experienced finisher in Dhaka club cricket, used his experience and squeezed out two boundaries off Shafiul Islam to win with two balls to spare.

Burners looked lost the moment Brad Hodge was dismissed in the third over but Joe Denly and Mahmood added 46 for the second wicket. Mahmood held his end, while wickets fell regularly at the other. He finished up with 57 off 34 balls, with the help of four sixes but with the next highest being just 29 by Sabbir Rahman, the total remained a middling one for Burners.

Munaweera's offspin fetched two wickets for Burners while Ben Edmondson and Taijul Islam took one each.

Excellent match! Jahurul knock won them the game. BPL has been rocking from week 2 and looks to surpass expectations from last year. No Pakistani players are not missed we don't need players that get bowled out for less than 50 in tests :D
