Golam Rahman celebrated his second century of the Sixth National Cricket League yesterday but his heroics were not quite enough for Sylhet to overhaul Rajshahi's first innings total at the Rajshahi Divisional Stadium.
The young opener, who cracked 160 in the league opener against Dhaka, made 115 but Sylhet only managed 202 for nine at stumps on second day after Rajshahi left-arm spinner Sohrawardi Shuvo snatched six wickets.
Meanwhile, three half-centuries gave Dhaka a substantial first innings lead in their home match against Khulna but their opponents replied with some solid batting of their own.
Ehsanul Haque scored the other century of the day to help Chittagong take a first innings lead against visiting Barisal.
RAJSHAHI v SYLHET
Rahman kept the Sylhet scoreboard moving but the left-hander's magnificent 189-ball knock could not make up for the disappointing way his teammates approached Shuvo's bowling, who finished with a fantastic 6-84.
Four of Sylhet's top six batsmen were dismissed below ten however Rahman remained resolute for over four hours hitting 14 fours and one six before being run out.
It was the 17-year-old's third first-class hundred with his maiden century coming also in this competition --115 against Chittagong last year.
Earlier, Rajshahi were all out for 299 in their first innings. The hosts lost their last five wickets adding 56 runs to their overnight 243 as Sylhet's national paceman Tapash Baisya grabbed three wickets in the morning. Hasibul Hossain, who took three wickets on the opening day, was the pick of the bowlers with 4-49.
Rajshahi opener Naeem Islam, overnight 75, added just one run while middle-order batsman Hasanuzzaman, resuming on 24, made 55 studded with half a dozen boundaries.
