Aggressive Mahedi guides Tamim XI to 221-9 against Nazmul XI

Aggressive Mahedi guides Tamim XI to 221-9 against Nazmul XI

Young all-rounder Mahedi Hasan struck a 57 ball-82 as Tamim XI posted a respectable 221-9 against Nazmul XI in the rain-interrupted third game of the BCB President’s Cup at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

It’s the first time however in the tournament that any team could manage a 200 plus score.

Mahedi’s fluent knock was complemented by skipper Tamim Iqbal’s 33 and Shahadat Hossain Dipu’s 31.

Mahedi who clobbered nine fours and three sixes in his knock got Taijul in his company after Tamim XI was in dire strait with 128-8 and 200 plus score looked improbable.

However a fluent 83 ball-92 runs partnership in the ninth wicket stand between Mahedi and Taijul posed a real challenge for Nazmul XI.

But after being sent to bat first, Tamim XI’s start was pretty ordinary as they were four down before crossing the 100 runs mark.

Skipper Tamim Iqbal though held one end, his fellow opener Tanzid Hasan Tamim was out on 8 before Anamul Haque Bijoy (12) and Mohammad Mithun (4) perished to loose shot.

Tamim also played a rash shot to be out after hitting four boundaries in 45-ball knock after which Shahadat Hossain Dipu took the anchor role. But he too experienced a sensational collapse at the other end.

Mahedi and Taijul then brought the side back into the contention, sharing a partnership full of aggressive shots.

Taijul meanwhile remained calm and just concentrated on staying in the crease. Mahedi played all kinds of shots around the park to help the side post a challenging total.

Al-Amin Hossain was the most successful bowler for Nazmul XI with 3-43 while Nayeem Hasan and Rishad Hossain took two wickets apiece.

Brief Score:

Tamim XI 221-9 in 50 overs (Mahedi 82, Tamim 33, Shahadat Dipu 31; Al-Amin 3-43, Rishad 2-21, Nayeem 2-28)
