Fortune Barishal won by 5 wickets
Player of the match: Tamim Iqbal
Fortune Barishal won this match by 5 wickets and 1 over to spare!

It was a comprehensive victory for Fortune Barishal, a big plus for them as their skipper Tamim Iqbal manages to find his touch in this match, He remained not out till the end and ensured that his side won this match.

Fortune Barishal had an early set back as their opener Mahidy Hasan was sent back into the hut in the second over, From there on, Tamim Iqbal who was struggling to get proper timing decided to get himself in alongside Parvez Emon. 

Towards the end of the powerplay, both these batsmen went absolutely berzerk as they hammered a total of 36 runs in 12 balls and really brought the required run-rate under control. Emon, unfortunately, lost his wicket on 23 runs to an absolute gem of a delivery from Mahedi.

Tamim at the other end ensured that he did not lose his wicket and kept collecting the odd boundaries and helped the scoreboard moving. Towhid Hridoy the new man in also got the luxury to get himself and score the runs. He, unfortunately, threw his wicket away in trying to go for the glory shot and the match in a hurry.

Tamim stayed there and played brilliant innings of 77 runs off 61 balls which consisted of 10 fours and 2 sixes which eventually got his side across the finish line.

The MRA bowlers couldn't do much but created some excitement and hype towards the back end of that innings as they were looking to turn the game over its head. Unfortunately, it did not happen. The pick of the bowlers for them was Mukidul Islam who conceded just 27 runs and picked up 2 wickets.

That seals the match, the FBA skipper Tamim Iqbal makes sure that the match does not drag on till the last over. Just 8 runs were needed and he managed to hammer one six down the ground in the previous over. That six got them close to the finish line and from there FBA finished it without any drama!

17.1 Najmul Shanto to Irfan Sukkur, full length ball outside off, drives this to cover fielder.
A dramatic over from Mukidul. Just after a break, Tomhid feels the rush of blood and throws his wicket away as he tries to play a needless shot. The was looking pretty much done and dusted by the wicket of Towhid could possibly open a door for MRA?

Tamim also hit one air-bone and it was a tough chance for the fielder at fine leg. After that, Afif edges one to the keeper and loses his wicket as well. The match is surely on as FBA now need 17 runs in 18 balls, another tight over and the pressure will build on FBA batsmen!
