Dhaka Dynamites 157-6 (Pollard 55) beatKhulna Titans 156-5 (Brathwaite 64no) by four wickets13th match, Bangladesh Premier League, DhakaScorecard
Kieron Pollard scored a blistering half-century while Jahurul Islam played a calm innings under pressure as Dhaka Dynamites chased down 157 runs against Khulna Titans in the penultimate delivery with five wickets in hand in the 13th game of the Bangladesh Premier League.
Needing just under eight an over in the chase, Dhaka got off to a worst possible start losing the first four wickets including Evin Lewis (4) and Shahid Afridi (1) for just 24 runs.
Shakib Al Hasan (20) looked good during his 17 ball but with him also departing, the home side were reeling at 41 for five. This is when Pollard (55) decided to counterattack and smashed four sixes in the 11th over indicating the things to follow.
The onslaught from Pollard continued as he plundered 20 runs off the 13th over bowled by his West Indian team-mate Carlos Brathwaite (0-34). He reached his fifty off 19 deliveries but soon fell after that with Dhaka needing 43 runs to win off 26 deliveries.
Jahurul (45 not out), who was patiently watching Pollard's masterful innings at the other end began to take control and by the end of the 19th over, Dhaka needed six more runs. Even though they managed just two runs off the first four deliveries, a boundary from Jahurul in the penultimate delivery took them over the line and to the top of the table.
Earlier, even though Nazmul Hossain Shanto (24) and Rilee Rossouw (34) played useful knocks for Khulna, it was unbeaten 29 ball knock from Brathwaite (64 not out) that helped them recover and post 156 for five in the 20 overs.
