BD Gold Cup Press Box Week 3; Sydney Shield vs OZ NSU

OZ NSU were up against Shield challenge. Winning the toss, they put Shield on to bat first. Despite Hossain Mohammad striking in his first over, Arup Saha the new Captain of Shield stood up to the occasion and hammered the OZ NSU bowlers all around the park scoring 48 (40) almost competing with his partner Rahid Alam who scored a belligerent 92 (81). Those who don’t know, Rahid is the youngest player of the tournament. Shield built on a mammoth score of 217/4 from 25 overs. Pick of the OZ NSU bowlers was Hossain Mohammed with figures of 5-0-30-1.
Coming into bat OZ NSU lacked the fire power to overcome the challenging total on the board. Despite having a 50 run opening stand, the run rate was never up to the mark. Once the opening stand was broken, Shield were able to find wickets at regular intervals. The only batsman who stood up from OZ NSU was Hossain Mohammad who scored 52 (64).

Shubha Paul was outstanding with the ball for Shield. His figures read 5-0-23-3. Another devastating outing for OZ NSU, dropped catches and poor ground fielding would perhaps be the reason behind such a poor game. Sydney Shields on the other hand are building on in the points table with 2 wins out of the three games.
MOM: Rahid Alam

Bengal Cavalry vs Western All Stars:

After a devastating game the last weekend, Cavalry were up against strong Western All Stars. Winning the toss, Cavalry elected to field first. Coming into bat, WAS lost their opener Shirajul Sagor in the second over, courtesy of Yasef Ifaz’s charismatic bowling. After a quick wicket, Sayem and Ishmam took charge of building a strong partnership. Despite Sayem being dropped at just 4 he paced his innings quite well with Ishmam to build on a partnership of 67 runs for the second wicket. Once Sayem fell to a good bowl from Salman Ahmed, Cavalry found the formula to make in-roads at regular intervals. Majority of the bowlers from Cavalry had economical figures, however they could not stop Ishmam from scoring 59 (62). Pick of the bowlers from Cavalry was Yasef Ifaz for his economical spell of 5-1-14-1. WAS scored a decent total of 159/6 from 25 overs.

Coming into bat, WAS struck in the first over. Cavalry were 11/1. Sakib Syed and Yasef Ifaz built on a very strong second wicket partnership of 70 odd runs until Sakib scooped one to extra cover after scoring a blistering 51 (34). It was surely Cavalry’s game then, still.
The spinners from WAS found out the right line and length to bowl to the Cavalry batsmen. Once Sakib Syed got out they found three quick wickets. This led to yet another collapse for Cavalry. Akther Hussain however was strong in restricting middle order from collapsing and held one end by scoring a magnificent 39 (32). However, the other end was wide open with wickets tumbling. With a set batsman at one end and Cavalry 149/8 in the 23rd over, one would still say it is Cavalry’s game to lose. However, a poor run out of a misfield resulted in Akther Hussain’s wicket and that pretty much decided the fate of the match.

It was a nail bitter of a finish with WAS getting victory by just 4 runs. Sigh of a relief for Western All Stars but a very unfortunate outing for Bengal Cavalry. MOM: Ishmam Masud.

PIFI VS Dhaka Chargers:

Dhaka Chargers are having the season of their lifetime, credit to the top two run scorers of the season so far. Anirban and Mash. Winning the toss Dhaka Chargers put in PIFI to set a total that they would have been comfortable to chase. PIFI did not have an ideal start. Muda from DC struck in his first over with his first scalp of the day, Ismail Bin Islam. Not too far from there (in his second over), he struck again getting the wicket of Arafat Rahman. PIFI were 23/2 by then. Strong partnerships in the middle overs ensured PIFI reach a par total of 156/10. Sayem Chowdhury from PIFI 39 (43) and Asif Hasan Anik 36 (32) were the top scorers. The pick of the bowlers from DC was Syed Ashaab with excellent figures of 5-0-23-3. It must not be ignored that PIFI were looking for a bigger total, however, Zakir Chowdhury took a screamer, diving to his right from point to nearly covering the ground to extra cover to get the prized wicket of Pervez Ahmed who was looking dangerous. Pervez scored 30 (30).
Coming into bat, DC took full advantage of having two of their in-form batsmen open the innings. Mash and Anirban doing what they do best. Mash scoring 55 (47) and Anirban 66 (65) giving a solid 83 run partnership to setup a platform to finish the chase. It was not all jazzy for DC though, PIFI had some good bowlers in their armoury and started to strike through DC’s middle order. DC lost wickets in clusters but just had enough to cross the target to get yet another much deserved victory.

Ishrak and Emran from PIFI were the pick of the bowlers. The respective figures were 5-1-14-1 and 4-0-26-2.
It must be pointed out that if PIFI broke through the top two of Dhaka Chargers initially, the game could have had a different outcome. Live by the sword they say, and DC are looking dangerous this season. MOM: Anirban Maitra

Randwick Raiders vs Ekattor (71):

One of the two close games of week three. Both strong sides went hand in hand to fight for glory. Randwick won the toss and elected to bat first and wanted to put runs on the board, as that’s what keeps the opponents under pressure.
Despite losing one early wicket, the top order clicked to score a formidable 187/4 from the allotted 25 overs. Imlak Zaman and Naimul Islam the two friends were the biggest threat to the opposition. Imlak scoring 58 (36) and Naimul 47 (37). Ajmal Khan was the pick of the bowlers from Ekattor (71) with figures of 5-0-30-2.
Coming into bat, Ekattor (71) had a horror start to chase such a big total with two of their batsmen back in the hut just within two overs. Ekkator (71) were 15/2. Ever consistent Mazharul started building a strong partnership with Md Rajon until he got run out for 32 (23). Ekattor did not give up though, despite being 94/5 their Captain rose up to the occasion. Imran Shovon played a magnificent innings of 47 (32) and almost saw his side home until giving a catch to Probal Islam off Tanzeelur’s bowling. That very wicket might have just sealed the game for 71.
The game went down the wire with Randwick just escaping with a victory of a narrow margin of just 7 runs. Pick of the bowlers from RR was Shariful Islam with figures of 5-0-35-3. MOM: Imlak Zaman

VT Cricket Club vs Sydney Strikers:

VT were up against a strong Sydney Striker side. Winning the toss and electing to bat first, VT had the start that any team would love to have. Their first wicket stand was for 106 until Md Abid Hossain scooped one to the hand of Isac King. He (Md Abid) launched and played the innings of his lifetime scoring seven maximums and five boundaries for his score of 75 of just 34 deliveries. VT built on towards a big score despite few quick wickets in the middle order. Sadrul Rishad, Mohammad Rafi and Nurl Amin Shaon had valiant contributions towards the mammoth score of 206/9. Isac King was the pick of the bowlers from Strikers with figures of 4-0-28-2.
Coming into bat, Strikers had an average start. They lost one of their openers in the second over for a quick fire 25 runs on the board. In came Sandeep Sharma who built on a partnership with Md Kabir who scored a blistering 75 (48) and set the tone for the big chase. Musa Ahmed coming in at number five launched from the word go. Scoring 55 of just 25 with four maximums and two boundaries. He ensured a smooth sail for Sydney Striker to a comfortable win by 6 wickets.
VT lacked fire power with their bowling, five out of the six batsmen from Strikers had strike rate over 100. That’s what made the difference in the end.
Pick of the bowlers from VT was the ever consistent Nirzer Islam 4-0-25-2. MOM: Isac King.

SBT vs CCA:

SBT were up against CCA. Winning the toss, SBT started fantastically with both their openers putting up 68 for the first wicket stand. Despite the wicket SBT maintained a strong run rate throughout the innings. They had eight out of the 10 batsmen who reached double figures. This ensured yet another mammoth total for SBT of 208/8 on the board after 25 overs. Shamim Al Mamun was the top scorer from SBT scoring 42 (22) striking at a rate of 190.91. There was not much of highlight from CCA’s bowling apart from Sazzad Jewel’s immaculate spell of 5-0-29-3.
Coming into bat, CCA lost wickets at regular intervals faltering to some excellent bowling from SBT. CCA’s innings ended at 136/7 with Riyad Mahmud being the top scorer scoring 41 (34). Shamim Al Mamun had a fantastic day with the bat and bowl. His bowling figures read 5-0-20-2.
MOM: Shamim Al Mamun.
