Sohan leads Sheikh Jamal for crushing victory over Mohammedan

  • Print




Captain Nurul Hasan Sohan struck an unbeaten 83 to lead Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club for a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Mohammedan Sporting Club in their third match of Super League phase of Dhaka Premier League (DPL) at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah on Friday.
This was Sheikh Jamal's fifth straight victory in the league and three in a row in the Super League, helping them to move into the third spot of DPL point table with 18 points, behind Legends of Rupganj (24) and Abahani Limited (22).
With two matches still left, no team barring Rupganj and Abahani are in the race for the coveted DPL title.
Put into bat first, Mohammedan were dismissed for a paltry 159 in 44.4 overs, a target which Jamal gunned down with ease despite a shaky start as they reached the winning target of 163-3 in 33.3 overs.
Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club were reduced to 13-2 in fifth over but recovered from the collapse thanks to opener Imtiaz Hossain and skipper Nurul Hasan Sohan. The duo added 120-run for the second wicket stand. Imtiaz was removed for 54 off 88 with seven fours and one six but Sohan remained unscathed to help the side sail the home. His 83 not out came off just 85 balls, an innings in which he struck nine fours and one six.
Mohammedan also tasted a top order collapse as Jamal pace bowler Khaled Ahmed continued tormenting batsmen with raw pace. Seasoned campaigner Tushar Imran held together the innings with 56 runs but leg-spinner Tanbir Hyder triggered a lower middle order collapse to limit Mohammedan in a small total.
Tanbir snapped up 4-16 in 4.4 overs while Khaled ended up with 2-32.
