He was accompanied by Jaker Ali Anik who also remained unbeaten on 69 off 59 balls. The duo built an unbeaten 171-run partnership for the sixth wicket in just 123 deliveries.

Left-arm spinner Arafat Sunny bagged a five-for to make life easier for the men in sky blue.
In the other match, Prime Bank Cricket Club bagged their third successive win to solidify their top spot in the tournament.

He was accompanied well by Naeem Islam who bagged 91 off 109 balls.
