Astounding Amin led the Bulls to triumph
Some stunning fast bowling by Al – Amin Hossain which has been supported well enough by spinner Taijul Islam has led Barisal Bulls to successfully defend their paltry total of 108 runs in the sixth match of the Bangladesh Premier league. They have just defeated Sylhet Super Stars by 1 run at the Sher – E – Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Despite having a very insignificant total in front of them, Sylhet Super Stars’ batsmen were never been in real chase of the runs. Al – Amin flattered the total batting line up of the opposition with his fiery but calculative pace bowling, picking up 4 Super Stars batsmen within 18 runs in the board.
Dilshan Munaweera, batting as an opener was quite cornered by the pressure bowling, ultimately lost his wicket after scoring 36 runs (31 balls, 4×6) off the bowling of Taijul Islam who accompanied gleefully Al – Amin’s effort of saving his team.
Taijul captured 3 wickets in total including that of Mohammad Shahid in the last over the match which was perhaps the most valuable one in terms of match situation.
The national team spinner kept his head cool in the ultimate over of the match under severe pressure as Caribbean tale end batsman Fidel Edwards was on the crease who possess the reputation of hitting shots in times of need. But Edwards was restricted to take just two runs in the last ball when 4 was needed to win the match for the Sylhet Super Stars.
It is the second consecutive win for the Barisal Bulls in this season’s BPL.
