Star-studded Dhaka out to tame Khulna

Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) will resume with a day break at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium today.

Defending champions Dhaka Dynamites will take on Khulna Titans in the day’s first of the third day of the Dhaka-leg at 1:00pm.

Already Dynamites played three matches, two of which in Sylhet and the last one in Dhaka. Today’s match will be their fourth match.

They won back-to-back matches following their shocking defeat to Sylhet Sixers by nine wickets in the curtain raiser match. They won their last two matches by showing their bowling and batting muscles what could be a worrying thing for its rival teams. Now they are languishing at second position on points table with four points just after Sylhet Sixers. This match against Titans will be for them to go on top.

The 2016 BPL champions appeared in at the National Cricket Academy to hold their pre-match day practice session under the guidance of the head coach Khaled Mahmud Sujon.

With the light warm-up they started their practice session without their last match hero ‘Boom Boom’ Shahid Afridi.  Before departing from Mirpur, they thereafter did their practice with bat and ball for the longer period.

Dynamites recruit West Indies all-rounder Sunil Narine spoke to media before their intense pre-match day practice session, whereby he said that there are some advantage of more quality players in a team if one fails to sparkle other comes to fill the shoes.

“The quality bowlers we have in the team it’s easier to come and fill the gap if any have,” said Sunil Narine, who entered into the 300-wicket T20’s elite club as the third bowler after Dwayne Bravo and Lasith Malinga.

“I think it’s less pressure on one individual so that makes it a good team effort. If you don’t do well there is someone to fill up the gap and do it for the team,” Narine told reporters before getting down their training at the NCA ground yesterday. Even though Narine was seen mostly at ground with ball, he started his new innings with bat and succeeded in most cases. He said that he tries to contribute for the team while it is needed.

“Yes, I am enjoying it,” the spin all-rounder said, adding: “I am a bit successful at the moment and whatever the team requires from me I am willing to do it.”

“As I said before I am looking forward to do whatever the team requires from me.”

The veteran spinner said that they have quality spinners to defend any score at the spin-friendly track in Dhaka.

On his T20 record, Narine said, “In cricket I mean you always wanted to do good and doing good and getting achievements at the end of the day itself a lot. It says that you are working on your game and focusing a lot and hopefully there will be more achievements in future and I am taking step by step and game by game.”

Narine plays in IPL with Shakib Al Hasan but this time he plays in BPL under the captaincy of Shakib.

Praising Shakib captaincy, West Indian spinner said that he could come out the best out of the players.      

“It can be a challenge at times when you have a star studded team,” he said.

“But I think he is doing a good job. He is letting all the individuals do what they have it build on the strengths and I think he is a real captain and he gets the best out of the players,” he also said.

Khulna Titans on the other hand did their practice in the morning session but they were tight-lipped. They left Mirpur without talking  to media.
