Rangpur Riders made all arrangements for the loss. Chasing a target of 121 runs, the team lost 6 wickets for 39 runs without Shakib Al Hasan. But at one end was Babar Azam. Ideal batsman to stay at the wicket aiming for 150 runs or less.
At the other end, Azmatullah got Omarzai to form a match-winning partnership. Babar won by 4 wickets before 10 balls in an unbeaten pair of 86 runs against Sylhet Strikers.
Rony left Babar for 12 runs. Farewell to Brandon King after 12 runs. Captain Nurul Hasan got off with a six. And the Lankan leg-spinner Dushan Hemant came and made three LBWs in 4 balls.
The last recognized batting pair on the wicket. But when chased with a run rate of 6, Babar is the ideal batsman. Babur continued on that path. He went ahead with Omarzai without taking any risk. Omarzai is aggressive to fulfill the quota of spinners. Babar was unbeaten on 56 off 49 balls with 6 fours. Omarzai scored 47 runs off 35 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes.
Earlier, Sylhet, who came out to bat first, also fell into a batting disaster. Unable to bowl, Mashrafe bin Mortaza dropped to three. But ridiculously scored 6 runs before being run out. Mithun was calm, Yasir Ali also couldn’t do anything. Sylhet lost 5 wickets for 39 runs. Later, Ben Cutting and Benny Howell put on a 68-run partnership to give the team some relief. Both scored 37 runs but could not make the necessary storm at the end.
