Ehsanul Haq has slammed another blasting half-century today in BNS while Mohammedan thrashed Young Pegasus, the weakest among the six clubs, by 4 wickets at BNS today. In fact the match ended as soon as Pegasus were bundled out for a mare 130 in 42.4 overs. Mohammedan reached the target in 27.3 overs with 4 wickets to spare.
Mohammedan set off for onslaught from the starting and Ehsanul Haq, who is rather prominent for playing copybook shots, came out off his conventional mode for today. He took punitive measures on the Pegasus bowlers and slammed the ball to all parts of the field. His 65 off just 45 deliveries included 10 fours and a six (Good enough to be adjudged for the man-of-the-match).
With Habibul Bashar, in the second wicket, Ehsanul ran up 75 runs. Bashar was keeping himself off from playing ambitious shots (His favorite ones too) and faced 57 balls to manage his unbeaten 25.
Vice captain Sanwar Hossain won the toss and sent Pegasus to bat first in a slightly damp wicket. The spinners trio Rafique, Shabbir Khan and Steve Tikolo took the advantage and restricted the team to 130 only. Hasanuzzaman top scored 34 where opener Humayun managed 31. Their Pakistani recruit Majid Jafri scored 23 before Tikolo trapped him lbw.
Steve Tikolo claimed 3 for 18 where Shabbir took 2 for 36.
