There were two centuries during the second round, both coming from Tier 2 matches. Nahidul Islam blasted ten fours and seven sixes on the way to his second first-class century. He smashed 129 out of Khulna's total of 213 against Barishal. Elsewhere, Mushfiqur Rahim struck 110 with six fours in Rajshahi's big win over Dhaka Metro.
There were five five-wicket hauls in this round of games, with veteran left-arm spinner Nabil Samad taking his second successive five-for for Sylhet, who were also helped by Tanzim Hasan Sakib's 5 for 53 in the second innings. Meanwhile, Chattogram's Hasan Murad and Khulna's Tipu Sultan got a five-wicket haul each in a losing cause, even as Rajshahi's Taijul Islam took 6 for 109 in their big win over Dhaka Metro.
Sylhet's four-wicket win over Dhaka Division could have major consequences later in the competition, as they now lead in their tier. Playing against the defending champions, that was a massive result for Sylhet, who have never won the tournament.
Sylhet are on top of the points table, with Rangpur also opening their account in Tier 1. Rajshahi lead the Tier 2 table, while Khulna suffered their second loss in a row.
Amite, last season's second-highest scorer, continued his fine form with another fifty for Sylhet, after scoring 79 in the first round. Young fast bowler Sakib impressed with his performance too, with experienced Nabil also picking up his second successive five-for.
