Mizanur becomes first centurion of Dhaka League T20

Mizanur Rahman of Brothers Union hit 65-ball 100 on Thursday against Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club and became the first batsman to score a century in the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division Twenty20 Cricket League at BKSP.

Sheikh Jamal won the toss and sent the Brothers bat first, who riding on Mizanur’s bat, scored 133 for two in 17 overs before the rain came and interrupted the game.

Along the way of hitting the first ton of the season, Mizanur hit 13 fours and three sixes.

The match never got a resumption due to rain and ended up with no result.

It was the 11th and last game of both teams in the initial round of the Dhaka League T20.

After all these rounds of games, Sheikh Jamal won six games and ensured a place in the Super League, the next phase of the league, which will be played between six teams.
