Gazi Group Chattogram secured a comfortable nine wickets victory over Beximco Dhaka in the 4th match of the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

After winning the toss Gazi Group Chattogram sent Dhaka to bat first and they dismissed for 88 runs in 16.2. Chattogram chased dwon the trivial target in just 10.5 overs keeping nine wickets in hand.  

Soumya Sarkar and Liton Das added 79 runs in the opening stand which paved the way for easy victory for Gazi Group Chattogram. Liton Das scored 34 off 33 with three fours and one six. While Soumya Sarkar remained not out scoring 44 off 29 with the help of 4 fours and 2 sixes. Mominul Haque also remained not out scoring 8 runs. Nasum Ahmed is the only successful bowler who got the wicket of Liton Das. 

Earlier, Beximco Dhaka came up with clueless batting to be dismissed for 88 runs in 16.2 overs against Gazi Group Chattogram in their second match of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup.

Apart from opener Naim Sheikh, no one could stand tall after Dhaka, who lost the first match against Minister Group Rajshahi by two runs, was sent to bat first.

Naim Sheikh top-scored the side with 40 off 23, hitting three fours and as many sixes. Akbar Ali scored 15 while Muktar Ali made 12. Apart from the trio, no one could reach the double-digit figure.

While the batsmen showed listless batting, credit should go for Gazi Group Chattogram bowlers also. Playing their first game in the tournament, the Chattogram bowlers came up with a disciplined bowling show to make inroads at regular intervals.

Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat and Taijul Islam bagged two wickets apiece while Nahidul Islam and Soumya Sarkar claimed one each.
