That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting Bangabandhu T20 Cup, 2020. contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose, and my colleague, Navjeevan Rajput, signing off.
Going into this must-win encounter, Minister Rajshahi lost the toss and were sent in to BAT first. The openers gave them a flying start and soon managed 64/0 from the first 6 powerplay overs. The opening partnership of 131 runs gave the team a great platform to put on a mammoth total. Opener Anisul Emon scored 69 runs from 39 balls while Rony Talukdar scored 18 runs from 12 balls. But it was all about skipper Najmul Shanto show. He played exceptionally well and scored 109 runs from just 55 balls to guide his team cross the 200 mark. From the bowling department, Sumon Khan took 2 wickets while Kamrul Islam struck a late hattrick, capturing 4 wickets at the very depth. Minister Rajshahi managed a mammoth total of 220/7 from their 20 overs.
Chasing 221, Fortune Barishal needed a good start and they did have one. They managed 67/1 from the first 6 powerplay overs and from there they never looked back. Skipper Tamim Iqbal scored 53 runs from 37 balls and gave his team a great start to put up a fight with. Parvez Emon and Affif Hossain did the rest of the task. Afif Hossain remained unbeaten on 26 runs from 16 balls while Parvez Emon played a blinder of an inning. He struck sixes for fun and took the bowling attack apart. He remained unbeaten on 100 runs from just 42 balls and guided his team home. From the bowling department, Saifuddin took 1 wicket but went for plenty. None of the bowlers were able to put any dent in the run chase. Barishal reached 221/2 from 18.1 overs with 11 balls to spare.

Fortune Barishal thus complete a resounding performance and win this must-win encounter by 8 wickets. What a performance it has been from them.
