NCL: Rangpur sniffs victory after Mugdho’s 12-wicket haul

Fast bowler Mukidul Islam Mugdho
claimed 12 wickets, six each in two innings as Rangpur Division closed
in on victory against defending champions Khulna Division in Tier-1
game of the Bangabandhu 22nd National Cricket League (BCB) at Rangpur
Cricket Garden.

At the end of day three, Rangpur reached 17 for no loss, chasing a
victory target of 117.

Mukidul Islam Mughdho who snapped up 6-64 in the first innings,
again came up with fire to snare 6-67 in the second innings as Khulna
was bowled out for 259, resuming the day three on 4-1 today.

Mughdo’s 12-wicket haul is the second best bowling figure for a fast
bowler in the NCL, just behind Ruyel Mea’s 13-wicket in a match.

Opener Amit Mojumdar was the highest scorer for Khulna with 89 off
166, hitting 14 fours while Ziaur Rahman hammered 64. Even though the
duo put up a good performance, the other batsmen could stand tall
against a gem of fast bowling for Mugdho.

Mahmudul Hasan took 2-24 while Ariful Haque and Sohrawardi Shuvo
picked up one wicket apiece for Rangpur to complement Mughdho’s

Before the bails were drawn, Nahid Javed was batting on 14 with
Nobin Islam 1 for Rangpur.
