Abdul Majid, who was retired hurt on Tuesday after notching 159 off 181 deliveries, returned to bat today and completed his second double hundred as Central Zone reached 546 in the first innings against East Zone in the sixth and final round of the Bangladesh Cricket League.

Following a muscle strain, Majid retired hurt but today he managed to convert his 159 to a double hundred with some big shots. Majid was in a hurry and he completed his double ton with a six and four to reach his target in the last over before lunch.

There was uncertainty that the right-hander will manage to reach his double ton after Central lost Shuvagata Hom and Irfan Shukkur in the space of three overs. However, following a brilliant eighth-wicket 76-run stand with Mohammad Sharif, Majid managed to complete his second first-class double century. Majid eventually fell after a 246-ball 205, an innings that contained 22 fours and eight sixes.
