Despite a 64-run opening stand by Fazle Mahmud (40 ) and Anamul Haque (23), the remaining South Zone batsmen hardly offered any resistance against some tight bowling display by the Central Zone bowlers, losing wickets at regular intervals.

Ebadat Hossain and Mosharraf Hossain were the pick of Central Zone bowlers as they claimed four wickets each giving away 32 and 57 runs respectively. They were well supported by Salahuddin Shakil who took two wickets for 50 runs.
In reply, Walton Central Zone started their second innings in the afternoon and their batsmen like their bowlers too sparkle with the willow as they rattled up 154 for 2 at stumps.
Central Zone lost their opener Saif Hasan who backed to the pavilion after scoring 30 runs off 37 balls laced with five boundaries.
Another opener Shadman Islam then paired 82-run second wicket stand with Abdul Mazid who was trapped leg before wicket by Abdur Razzak delivery. Mazid contributed 44 runs off 58 balls that was studded with six boundaries.
Shadman Islam remained unbeaten with a polished 66 runs along with Marshall Ayub 14 not out as the stumps were drawn for the day.
