That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting 2020–21 Bangabandhu T20 Cup contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose and my colleague, Nikhil Kulkarni, signing off.
Win 2 wins from 2, Chattogram went into the match being high on confidence. They lost the toss and were asked to BAT first. They went off to a decent start with 40/1 after the first 5 overs and looked set for a big total on the board. Opener Liton Das swung hard and contributed 35 runs from just 25 balls. Shamsur Rahman and Mosaddek Hossain held the batten of the innings in the middle overs and played out a crucial partnership. Shamsur scored 26 runs while Mosaddek added 28 runs to the scorecard. At the very depth, Shykat Ali produced a useful cameo of 27 runs from just 11 balls and took the total beyond 150. From the bowling department, Abu Jyaed took 2 wickets but gave away 42 odd runs from his 4 overs. Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, and Kamrul Islam were economical and struck a blow each. Chattogram stuck in there and finished on 151/7 from their 20 overs.
Chasing 152, Barishal looked a bit cautious in their approach managing 41/1 after their first 6 powerplay overs. In the middle overs, they found it hard to get going and their innings never got the momentum. With wickets falling at regular intervals, Barishal started to get away from their target. Skipper Tamim Iqbal played a knock of run-a-ball 32 while Afif Hossain added 24 runs from 22 balls in the middle overs. Towhid Hridoy looked good but departed after his quickfire knock of 17 runs from 10 balls. At the very depth, Sumon Khan contributed 15 runs but it was a bit too late by then. From the bowling department, Mosaddek Hossain took 1 wicket. Shoriful Islam and Mustafizur Rahman did justice to their names taking 3 wickets each and breaking the backbone of the batting team. It was an exceptional bowling display. Barishal toiled hard but fell short of the target and finished on 141/8 from their 20 overs.

Gazi Group Chattogram thus complete a dominating performance and win the match by 10 runs while recording their 3rd victory of the tournament in as many matches.

18.1 Shoriful Islam to Taskin Ahmed, OUT! The middle stump has gone cartwheeling! Almost an yorker on middle and leg and Taskin tries to play it to the leg side and misses. Shoriful is pumped up! Another batsman follows the procession and it's all falling apart in a heap.
