Fortune Barishal win the 2022 edition’s opener by four wickets

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.

Brief Scorecard:

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)
