All favourites won in the first match. Old DOHS sets the highest score for domestic Twenty20 league.

Good performance from Farhad, Marshall, Tamim, Mehrab with bat and Rashedul, Tariqul, Shuvo, Rafiq and Ahsanullah with ball.

Impressive bowling by our pace bowling duo Shahadat and Mortaza 2 wicket each with the expense of 8 and 7 runs respectively.

People who were complaining about Mehrab Hossain's RR please check is score in 20/20. So far what I hard that he can hit. SO just give him time. Selectors should just give him one or two tour to settle even he fails badly..

Hablu ? Who knows, he might have kept himself at #11 to avoid batting (like he did in a CCL match for Acme).

Old DOHS will be very hard to beat in this form of game. They have some very good hard hitters like Tamim and Nadif. Tamim will have lots of fun in this tournament where he can do what he does best. Hit it hard. Good to see Mehrab getting some runs. It is very important for him to develop the skill of scoring runs quickly and he seems to understand that.

In a serious note. I think he is going throw a process. I think he was told to hold on one side till some overs no matter what and if see closely SN is hitting a little bit more so I think his instruction was to go after the bowler. I am sure by the time its WC MH instruction will change. Its just the management is letting hi sink in...

Todays summary from Daily Star

Kalabagan found an unusual way to win their first match of this year's Twenty20 tournament: a bowl-out!


The struggling side triumphed over Bangladesh Biman 3-2 after both sides were tied at 115 runs each in the morning game of the Kai-Altech Premier Division Twenty20 League at the Fatullah Stadium yesterday.

Quirky and ridiculous as it sounds, the rules are quite simple: just hit three unguarded stumps.

Easy as it may sound, only Arafat Salahuddin, Rashedul Islam and Mahbubul Karim struck the stumps for winners Kalabagan while Mushfiqur Rahman and Mosharraf Rubel hit the target for Biman as Kalabagan won 3-2.

The misses on both sides looked quite absurd, as unlike football, there's no one to save the ball from hitting the stumps!

At the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium, young batsman Nadif Chowdhury made sure defending champions Old DOHS won with an over in hand, scoring an unbeaten 63 as they chased 135 runs set by City Club. He played a knock that suited the situation, hitting four boundaries and couple of sixes in his 43-ball knock as wickets fell around him.

He was well-supported by Abdur Razzaq who eased the pressure during the chase hitting a four and a six off spinner Fariduddin Masud at a vital juncture, giving Old DOHS a five-wicket win.

Away at BKSP, Abahani's big buy Tushar Imran did justice to his price tag as he also walked into a similar situation but had a smaller chase of 113 runs. He struck 61 off 53 balls that included five fours and a six.

He didn't find much support when he batted as only Nazmus Sadat reached double figures with 14 as Abahani won by three wickets off the last ball of the match.

Earlier Sonargaon Cricketers opted to bat first, only to be bowled out for 112 runs. Left-arm spinner Suharwardi Shuvo took five for 16 runs and was adjudged man-of-the-match.

Back to Fatullah after the morning drama and Mohammedan opener Junaid Siddique savaged the Young Pegasus bowling attack, smashing seven fours and a six in his 80-run knock. Faisal Hossain also threw his bat around, helping the giants reach 164 for eight in 20 overs.

Young Pegasus, facing their third defeat in a row, were never likely to win the match as national captain Habibul Bashar turned bowling hero taking three wickets as the promoted side were duly restricted to 103-8. This gave Mohammedan their third win in a row.

Victoria rode on Hasanuzzaman Rosel's 73 who struck eight fours and six sixes as his side maintained their 100 per cent win record with an easy 66-run win over Twenty20 whipping boys Partex.

While in the afternoon match at Dhanmondi, Brothers Union won their first game of the season, defeating hapless Indira Road by seven wickets.

Indira Road joined new boys Partex and Young Pegasus who are winless in the tournament so far.

With only two rounds to play, the battle heats up today as arch-rivals Abahani and Mohammedan face each other. Absurdly, the match will be played at far-flung BKSP, making it difficult for the large supporters to watch this big match.
Today's matches: Sonargaon v Brothers Union (Fatullah), Mohammedan v Abahani (BKSP-2), Indira Road v Young Pegasus (DCS) at 9am; Old DOHS v Biman (BKSP-2), Victoria v City Club (Fatullah), Kalabagan v Partex (DCS) at 1pm.

With Sunday's wins, the teams recorded four victories in a row.

Mohammedan Sporting Club, Sonargaon Cricketers, Partex SC and Young Pegasus also won their matches at different venues Sunday.

Mohammedan, who topped the Group B point table with four straight victories, are yet to confirm their semifinal berth as arch-rivals Abahani Limited and Sonargaon Cricketers have kept home alive with three wins.

At the BKSP ground, a half-century from Golam Mahmud helped Victoria register a 30-run win over City Club.

Batting first, Victoria notched up a fighting 166 for eight in 20 overs as Mahmud hit 52 off 43 featuring seven fours and Nasiruddin Faruque made a 30-ball 37 hitting as many fours.

City Club, in reply, managed 136 for nine with opener Gazi Salahuddin topscoring with 39.

Premier league champions Old DOHS crashed Biman by three wickets riding on a 51-run innings by Nadif Chowdhury. DOHS raced to 128 for seven with four balls to spare, chasing Biman's 127 for five in 20 overs at the BKSP ground-2.

A brilliant fifty from Aftab Ahmed powered Mohammedan to a nine-run win over arch-rival Abahani at the BKSP ground.

After being sent in to bat first, Mohammedan scored a moderate 115 runs for nine in 20 overs as Aftab Ahmed hit 66 off 60 balls hammering eight fours and opener Imtiaz Hosssain scored a nine-ball 12.

Apart from Aftab and Imtiaz, no Mohammedan batsman could touch the double figure as Mashrafee Bin Mortaza captured four wickets for 18 and Manjarul Islam grabbed two wickets for 18 runs.

The Dhamondi outfit, in reply, fell short of nine runs of the target, scoring 106 for nine in 20 overs with Nazimuddin topscoring with 26, followed by Tushar Imran's 20.

Riding on Alok Kapali's 56 runs, Sonargaon returned to the winning run beating Brothers Union by four wickets at Fatullah Cricket Stadium.

Sonargaon raced to 121 losing six wickets in 19.5 overs chasing Brother Union's 120 for nine.

Promotees Partex SC and Young Pegasus tasted first victory in Twenty20 tournament.

Partex (151 for four) recorded a six-wicket win over Kalabagan KC (147 for six) at Dhanmondi Cricket stadium while Pegasus (163 for eight) registered a convincing 50-run win over Indira Road KC (113 for six) at the same venue.

<o:p> </o:p>
Chasing a mountainous 227 in 20 overs, Sonargaon had the brilliant Mohammad Ashraful on a roll and his sterling 104 off 47 almost did the impossible. But when he fell with 32 needed, Mohammedan heaved a sigh of relief and scraped home by 9 runs at the Dhanmondi CCricket Stadium and confirmed their berth in semifinal of the League. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
In Thursday’s semifinal Group B champion Mohammedan play against Group A runners up <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:State><st1:place>Victoria</st1:place></st1:State> and Group A toppers Old DOHS play take on Group B’s second team Abahani. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
The Mohammedan-Sonargaon match was a straight fight for a semifinal place and Mohammedan made the perfect start by notching up 50 in just 3 overs. The 100 was up in 7.3 overs with left hander Junaed playing the innings of his life. His footwork was exemplary, hand-eye coordination terrific and timing superb and everything contributed to incredible power behind the shots. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Junaed hit 11 sixes all around the ground and one in particular off Mohammad Sharif sailed over the mid-wicket and over the wall. The 11 sixes in a single innings is a domestic record at any level surpassing Abahani’s Sri Lankan recruit Atula Samarasekera’s 10 sixes against Mohammedan in the final of Damal Summer tournament in 1992-93. The 20-year-old from Rajshahi also had six fours against his name.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Junaed’s 50 came in 20 balls and he completed his ton 31 balls later by picking a single at point. When his rampage ended Mohammedan were sitting pretty at 209/4 and their eventual 226/4 became the highest total in this version of cricket in <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region>.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Nobody at the ground gave Sonargaon any serious chance when they lost the first three wickets within 23 runs but if anyone had it in him to make a mockery of predictions it had to be Ashraful and he made the stage his. He was at his majestic best driving, flicking, pulling, reverse sweeping and cutting boundary after boundary. Along with Marshall Ayub he put on 93 runs in just 35 balls for the third wicket and twice took 28 runs in an over, the hapless bowlers being pacer Hasibul Hossain and off-spinner Rezaul Islam. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Suddenly Sonargaon were in the match as they raced to 116 in 9 overs. Aftab Ahmed with his occasional medium pace broke this partnership in his very first ball by taking the wicket of Marshall who caught at square leg. Aftab also cleaned up Mohammad Rafique’s stumps to leave Sonargaon on 146/5 in 11.3. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Ashraful was continuing his charge and there was another brilliant partnership of 49 runs with Mohammad Sharif. He breezed to his hundred and then lost his concentration for a while as he was unhappy with something and there was an animated debate with the umpires. Soon after he cut Tapash Baishya uppishly and Rezaul took the catch at point. Ashraful’s innings included 15 boundaries and three over boundaries.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
When Ashraul went Sonargaon’s hopes rested with Sharif (46 off 25; 8x4) but Tapash and Monjurul Islam kept a probing length and prevented a near miracle. Tapash’s perseverance was rewarded as he finished witjh 5/29 from four overs. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
In two other significant matches of the day, Old DOHS beat <st1:State><st1:place>Victoria</st1:place></st1:State> by three wickets and Abahani defeated <st1:Street><st1:address>Indira Road</st1:address></st1:Street> by 92 runs. <o:p></o:p>

I was just wondering why cant we see the full scorecard? Are these match official? I dont know see any scorecard neither in cricinfo nor in cricketarchive. Even Pakistan and Srilankan twenty20 matches are listed there. If these matches are not official then these records wont go with the players name. So at the end of tournament it will be saying "1" underTwenty20 played for Aftab, Sakib and others.....but for Junai, Ashraful it will be none.

Sonargaon Cricketers skipper Mohammad Ashraful was fined Tk 5,000 for showing dissent during the Twenty20 League match against Mohammedan Monday.

Match referee Rafiqul Alam called in Ashraful after the match and fined him for disputing umpires Nadir Shah and Ziaul Islam during the match at Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium.

According to the bylaws, a player cannot interfere in a decision or make any gesture to the umpires during the play.

Ashraful raised his hands at the umpires to protest after Mohammedan skipper Habibul Bashar wanted a substitute fielder in place of Junaed Siddique for the last six overs of the Sonargaon innings.

The umpires finally did not allow Mohammedan to bring substitute Junaed, who was declared fit to field. Junaed earlier scored 134 runs in the game.

Sonargaon lost to Mohammedan by nine runs in a nerve-racking match to exit from the league. Asharaful struck 104 in the match.

Morhum Pilot (Innalillah...)- Look at it this way. He had not out 6 and not out 21. He should be leading the league in average. Whatever happened to Shamsul Haque? Remember, McInnes put him way ahead of Nafees, Mehrab, Mushfiq and all the other kids. He was suppose to be the Messiah of Bangladeshi cricket, along with Enamul Jr.

He is playing for Victoria. He is just not getting enough chances to come to limelight in this version of the game. Check it out:

BTV is not showing the semifinals tomorrow. From DS:


Bangladesh Television will not telecast the matches live although chairman of Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) Khondokar Jamiluddin had said before the tournament that the state-run BTV verbally agreed to do so. He, however, failed to give any explanation about the failure.

His height shouldnt be a factor, he's mainly a batsman. Thats one thing thats sort of interesting, the shortest batsmen are usually the best.:D His average leaves a lot to be desired.....especially List A. Still, hoping Watchers right, he could be the next big thing, but i dont want to get my hopes up after one game......He might be ambidextrous as well, bowls right handed, bats left handed, which is kinda rare......

He looks powerfully built with wide shoulders. People with that type of body, if he is that tall indeed, usually become fast bowlers. I wonder why he is an off-break bowler, who can't even get to bowl in the domestic leagues. Ashraful's inning was more dazzling than Junaed's, if you go by the run rate. Who were the bowlers? I think, I saw Tapash, Rafiq, Shanto, Sharif, Alok, Sakib, Aftab, Ashraful among the notable names of bowlers. Wow, thats most of the national team bowling against them.

I guess your not too well acquainted with phrases....Never mind, here it is from www.phrases.org.uk :
: 1.the Next Big Thing -- The next fad, craze or popular item/activity that interests the public. Today's big thing in the U.S. is "reality television."

Ashraful opened the worlds eyes again and again, that doesnt necessarily mean that hes great, it means he aroused the worlds interest, he was the last big thing.

Since you understand that short players make the best batsmen, why don't you understand that tall, powerfully built players make the best fast bowlers? You understood I was talking about Junaed, right? By the way, if you are moved by fads, you'll soon have some interesting times in this forum. Calling flashes as a big thing has made your favorite player ranked in the 70s. There never was a "big thing" in Bangladesh cricket. Bashar and Rafiq came close to it at times though.

well most of the time short people end up as batsmen because in most cases that's all that they're good for. they're definitely not made for pace bowling, and even if they are good spinners, the lack of height actually disables them from extracting the additional (as well as unexpected) bounce factor - a tool that many spinners have been known to use to good effect in recent times. not that they can't be spin geniuses without this particular weapon, but having it does help.

Tall people obviously make the best fast bowlers, everyone knows that, but what you said before was that Junaid should become a fast bowler because he's tall, which doesnt really make sense considering strength and height are not all you need to become a fast bowler. As for the second part of your comment (which is hard to understand btw), you didnt read my post correctly, what it was meant to show was that "the next big thing" is a phrase that means anything that interests the public, something Ashraful did time and time again. The whole world stood up to take notice when Ashraful scored the 94 against England, meaning it interested them, so he was the "big thing" at the time. Bashar and Rafique never peaked the worlds interest, they were never the subject of conversations like Ashraful was. Ashraful was never my favourite player, I personally feel he shouldnt be in the team at the moment. I used him to show what people would call a "big thing"

Agreed. However, I wanted to add - the reason short people seem to be the best batsmen is *most probably* because the bowlers bowling to them have less room to bowl. Theres also a rather interesting theory on shorter people having quicker reaction times (apparently because impulses have less distance to cover) which would explain why shorter people tend to be better nascar drivers. But ofcourse, its just a theory, and should be treated as such....

Short batsman has lower center of gravity. That gives them more power to apply with the bat. They can hit almost all the shot without bending too much, cover drive, square cut, glance and even hooks . As a result their strokes are generted from the core of the body ruther then wrist or arm. That makes them quicker to react as well.:yawn:

I guess they didn't have any option but to wear something other than white since they are playing with the white balls. So they chose the closest possible color Ash.
