He played a great innings of 68 runs in the previous match. Mushfiqur Rahim’s bat is still laughing in BPL. The Bangladeshi batsman picked up the second fifty in a row. Batting first against Comilla Victorians, Fortune Barisal posted 161 runs for 9 wickets in Mirpur today courtesy of his 62 off 44 balls. Coming down to reply, at the time of writing this report, Comilla’s run is 31 for 2 in 5 overs. Mohammad Rizwan (15 balls 18) and Tawheed Hriday were dismissed two balls in a row in the fourth over.

It also became a feat for Mushfiqur Rahim on his way to his second fifty. Yesterday Tamim Iqbal became the first batsman to reach the milestone of 3000 runs in BPL. Mushfiqur needed 24 more runs to reach that milestone. Mushfiq also reached that milestone on the way to fifty today.

Tamim indicated a good start today with a six and a four. But could not pull off the great start. Barisal lost Tamim’s partner Mehdi Hasan Miraj (1 ball 0) in the opening in the first over, Pritam Kumar was also dismissed for three in the fourth over. After that, Soumya Sarkar came down and started aggressive batting, when Tamim accompanied him, Barisal expected a big pair. But in the last over of the power play, Tamim left after being caught by Roston Chase. Barisal’s run was 43, Tamim’s 19 off 16 balls.

Although Tamim could not, Mushfiq came down and formed a great pair with Soumya. The partnership of 66 runs off 45 balls was broken by Soumya Boulder off the first ball of the 14th over. Soumya got out with 42 runs off 31 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes.

After that, Shoaib Malik (7), Mahmudullah (4), Vellalagera came and went at one end, Mushfiq was trusted at the other end. Reached fifty in 35 balls (5 fours and 2 sixes). When Mushfiqur finally got out in the third ball of the 20th over, caught by Rizwan off Mustafiz, his name shone with 62 off 44 balls with 6 fours and 2 sixes. Barisal managed to score 5 more runs in the last three balls.
