Mashrafe’s next fifty came in just 15 deliveries. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza reached to his first List A career century in 50 balls. He got out on the very next ball to Shafiul Islam. He struck 104 off 51 deliveries including 11 sixes and only 2 fours at a strike rate of 203.92. Kalabagan Krira Chakra put 316/7 on board in 50 overs.
