Dhaka Division finished second in the NCL's Tier-1 after their innings and 78-run win over Barisal Division at Sylhet International Stadium.

When they batted first, 18-year old Dhaka batsman Saif Hassan became the youngest batsman in Bangladesh to score a double-hundred. His 204 was, however, not the highest score of the innings as Taibur Rahman reached 242 off 302 balls with 26 fours and a six. Saif's 410-ball knock included 20 fours and a six, as Dhaka declared on 588 for 6.

For Barisal, seamer Tawhidul Islam took 5 for 87 in 20.5 overs. The batsmen could not build on his good work though as they were bundled out for 189. Dhaka fast bowler Shahadat Hossain took four wickets to help enforce the follow-on. Barisal were bowled out on the fourth morning for 321 with Shahriar Nafees top scoring with 104 off 143 balls. Dewan Sabbir and Nazmul Islam took three wickets each.
