CAV vs KNT Match Preview

After three defeats in BPL 2024, the Chattogram Challengers tasted victory in their last game against the lowly-positioned Durdanto Dhaka. Batting first, Chattogram scored 159 runs for the loss of six wickets. This target proved to be impossible for the Dhaka outfit, and even though they lost fewer wickets, they could not reach the target. The Chattogram bowlers did an exceptional restriction job in the contest and did not allow the Durdanto batters to reach their score.

Tanzid Hasan was adjudged Player of the Match for 70 runs from 51 balls. Hasan was the leading run-getter during the Challengers innings. He was well supported by the wicket-keeper batter Tom Bruce, who scored 48 runs from 35 deliveries with two sixes and three fours. The Chattogram bowlers shared the spoils, with almost all bowling economically. The top bowler for Challengers was Shuvagata Hom. He picked up two wickets from his three overs for 12 runs. Bilal Khan, Salauddin Sakil, and Shohidul Islam were other bowlers among the wickets.

The Khulna Tigers also had to endure four losses in a row before they beat Durdanto Dhaka in their last game. Durdanto Dhaka batted first to score 128 runs for losing seven wickets from their quota of twenty overs. Khulna Tigers chased this target easily in 15.2 overs with five wickets to spare. Wayne Parnell was one of the top bowlers, with three wickets for 19 runs. He was promptly adjudged Player of the Match for his effort. The only other successful bowler for Khulna was Mukidul Islam, who also picked up three wickets.

The Khulna Tigers' innings were not off to a great start, as they lost their openers early. However, Parvez Hossain Emon, Shai Hope, and Afif Hossain made good contributions to ensure the Khulna team reached the target with something to spare. Emon scored 40 runs from 30 balls with four sixes and two fours, while Hope scored 32 runs from 28 balls with three fours and one six. But Afif Hossain took the team to a comfortable win, scoring 43 runs from 21 balls with four sixes and two fours.
