Fortune Barishal win the 2022 edition’s opener by four wickets and get off the mark in the points table in their first-ever Bangladesh Premier League match. They were up against Chattogram Challengers.
Shakib Al Hasan | Barishal captain: I thought we bowled brilliantly, but we could have been a little better. Very happy with the way we played this game, but there are areas we can improve on. We have a well-balanced side, we have some good hitters in our team, just that we needed some momentum to get going in the tournament.
Mehidy Hasan | Player of the Match: It was difficult for us as we lost three wickets in the powerplay. We were 25 runs short in my opinion. Howell did well for us, scoring 40 runs in 20-odd balls. Unfortunately, we didn’t get wickets in the middle overs. It was spinning a touch, but our bowlers kept it a tad short. Yes, I got four wickets but would have been happy if we would have won the match.
Chattogram Challengers 125 for 8 in 20 overs (Howell 41, Joseph 3-32)
Fortune Barishal 126 for 6 in 18.4 overs (Shykat 39, Miraz 4-16)
Result: Fortune Barishal won by four wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
