Dhaka, February 06, Wednesday at 06:00 PM IST
Sunil Narine’s heroics knocked Chittagong Vikings out of the BPL 2019 and took Dhaka Dynamites one step closer to the final of the tournament. After a brilliant performance with the ball (4-15), Narine’s quickfire of 16-ball 31 gave a perfect start to Dynamites to register 6 wickets win over Victorians while chasing 135 runs target.
Dhaka Dynamites will now lock horns with the defending champions Rangpur Riders in the Qualifier 2 to book the vacant spot against Comilla Victorians in the final. The clash will begin at 06:00 PM IST tomorrow evening at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.
The reigning champions Rangpur Riders suffered a massive eight wickets loss against Comilla Victorians in the first qualifier and are lucky to have another shot after finishing in the top two spots. They would have surely learnt a lesson and would be hoping to not repeat the same on Wednesday evening. Batting first, Riders posted 165-5 with the help of Chris Gayle’s (46), R Rossouw’s (44) and Benny Howell’s 53 not out.
In reply, Evin Lewis’ unbeaten 71 alongwith Anamul Haque’s 39 and Shamsur Rahman’s unbeaten 34 helped the side chased down the target with 8 wickets in hand and seven balls to spare. Rangpur Riders failed to grab wickets with their indisciplined bowling attack and also were short of 10-15 runs. On a pitch like this, a minimum of 180 would have worked for Dynamites.
However, Riders would be pretty confident to bounce back and would be hoping for a better outing with the ball. Both the sides have faced each other twice in this edition with one win apiece and a nail-biting encounter can be expected to take place tomorrow.
Both the sides have met twice. In their first encounter, Dynamites turned out to be the winner by 2 runs after successfully defending 183 runs on the board while in the second meeting, Riders clinched 8 wickets win while chasing 186 runs on board.
