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
effort.

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