Shykat Ali put up a fantastic performance in the BPL Finals

Shykat has aided Fortune Barishal in getting off to a good start in the run-chase.

Fortune Barishal looked confident in chasing a reasonable goal of 152 runs in the Bangladesh Premier League Finals after Shykat got the team off to a strong start.

The match is drawing closer as both teams give it their all to capture the championship trophy of this incredible Bangladesh Premier League.

Shykat smashed 11 fours and one six in the finals and seemed in great form, with the team expecting he might win the game on his own, but Tanvir Islam’s clever bowling forced Shykat to return to the pavilion.

Shykat’s 58-run innings came to an end when Kayes caught Tanvir’s delivery and took the key wicket.

The Comilla Victorians (CV) scored 151 runs in the first innings of the finals, thanks to Narine’s early start for the team, which helped CV gain an advantage in the game. Narine had a tremendous finals performance, scoring 57 runs in only 23 deliveries while hitting five fours and five sixes.

Sunil Narine just joined the group of quickest 50 after scoring 13 balls 50  in the second qualifier of the Bangladesh Premier League at Mirpur to assist Comilla Victorians overcome Chattogram Challengers.

CV had scored 94 runs in 10 overs but had lost six wickets, and the game appeared to be in hit-or-miss mode with only the tail-enders left to bat.

Moeen remained firm and kept the innings stiff from one end, but his crucial 38-run effort was brought to an end by an unexpected run-out.

CV looked good at the start of the first innings, and Fortune Barishal’s top-order batsmen, which include Chris Gayle, Munim, Shykat Ali, Najmul, and Shakib Al Hasan, may have big plans. Dwayne Bravo, Nurul Hasan, and Towhid Hridoy are among Fortune Barishal’s backups down the order.
