Walton National Cricket League 2012
Khulna, Dhaka vie for title
The final round of the 14th National Cricket League begins today with both Khulna and Dhaka aiming to etch their name on the trophy by winning their respective matches. Khulna lead the table with 34 points followed by Dhaka who have 30 points. An outright win gives a team six points, thereby providing second-positioned Dhaka a chance to win the trophy.
Khulna has a tough ask as they meet reigning champions Rajshahi at the Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra. They have been the leaders for the majority of the league. Khulna rode on Abdur Razzak and Murad Khan, who have taken 43 and 21 wickets in the league respectively. Khulna's Mohammad Mithun, who has scored 522 runs in the competition so far, will want to continue his good run in the final game. If they take the first innings' lead and draw the game, the three points will leave Khulna champions regardless of what Dhaka do. . . . . . . . . http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesig...php?nid=260182
