BPL: Rain plays spoilsport in Mirpur game

Rain played spoilsport on Friday afternoon, delaying the day's first match in the ongoing Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

In the first match of the day from 1.30pm, Sylhet Sunrisers were scheduled to take on Fortune Barishal. But an hour of showers have delayed the match.

In the second match, Comilla Victorians will take on Minister Group Dhaka at 6.30pm.

After Friday’s play, the teams will travel to Sylhet where six matches will be played on February 7, 8 and 9.

A total of 34 matches will be played in BPL, and 18 have already taken place.

Comilla are at the top of the points table, with eight points from four wins in five matches they have played so far. Barishal have also the same amount of points, but they are slightly behind Comilla in run-rate.
