Mohammedan Sporting Club confirmed a place in the second phase of the Dhaka Premier League with a 40-run win over Kalabagan Krira Chakra. Ezaz Ahmed's maiden List A hundred set up a formidable 305-run total.
Ezaz hammered five fours and six sixes in his 120-ball 109 after they were sent in to bat by Kalabagan. He rode out the loss of two early wickets, after which he added 165 runs for the third wicket with Habibur Rahman, who made 64 off 85 balls with two fours and three sixes. Rahmat Shah blasted a 26-ball 42 which took the Mohammedan total past the 300-run mark.
Kalabagan's reply started well with Mithun Ali scoring 41, and Bilal Shafayet 43. Naeem Islam kept everything together with 82 off 83 balls with six boundaries, but found little support afterwards, with only Farhad Hossain making 25 off 23 balls.
Mohammedan legspinner Rahmat Shah took five wickets while Delwar Hossain picked up two.
