NCL 2018: top 5 performances in the first round
#4 Shahadat Hossain (8 for 108 in the match)
Shahadat Hossain is the only Bangladeshi pacer, who has managed to see his name on the honours board of the Lord's by taking five scalps on the most significant cricket venue in the world back in 2010. But, the right-handed pacer failed to continue his form at the highest level of cricket.
The six-feet tall pacer took eight wickets in the first round of the NCL 2018 for Dhaka Divison against Chittagong. Dhaka scored 238 in the first innings of the match. Shahadat took 4 for 62 when Chittagong went into the middle for their first innings, and then, Dhaka scored 385 for 1 in their second innings thanks to a superb knock of 228 of Rony Talukdar.
Chittagong were bowled out quickly, scoring only 267 in their last innings as Shahadat took four scalps once again for 46.
This bowling performance of the right-handed pacer helped Dhaka Division to commence their NCL campaign with a comprehensive win.
