Albeit Lasith Malinga delivered untimely wide balls, it is he who brought the crucial wicket of Nadif Chowdhury tightening the screw of Dynamites’ bowling line up in the last match.
It was, in fact, the whole bowling line up of Rangpur Riders magnificently showed a whole hearted effort to defend the low total of 142 runs.
At the end of the match, Ravi Bopara attended the press from Rangpur Riders’ camp and expressed happiness gaining a great win.
“It feels good. We had no alternatives at that moment and decided to deliver Yorkers as many as possible,” he said.
Highly appreciating Thisara Perera’s bowling in death overs, Bopara said, “Thisara did the job wonderfully well.”
Considering the fact that Rangpur Riders’ bowlers bowled 19 extras in the innings, Ravi Bopara termed it as a ‘rare incident’.
“In our 20 overs, we bowled extra 3 overs. Dhaka Dynamites’ got the opportunity of batting almost 23 overs. It is a rare incident,” said Bopara.
“These things will not happen every day. After all we have won this time, but it’s not possible to win like this more than a time,” Bopara also said.
“This is cricket. We did not play our best in this particular day but we have won,” Bopara added.
In the 24th of November, BPL will resume in Chittagong for the next phase.
