Day matches at Mirpur usually don’t score too many runs. Batters need to get a lot of speed to get runs. However, two foreign stars of Rangpur, Reza Hendricks and Jimmy Neesham, broke that taboo by playing BPL for the first time today. The rest were also in rhythm. Rangpur lost 3 wickets in the scheduled 20 overs and stopped at 211 runs. Reza Hendricks scored the highest 58 runs. Apart from this, Jimmy Neesham remained unbeaten on 51 runs off 26 balls.

In reply Chittagong’s innings ended with 158 runs after losing 6 wickets. Rangpur won by 53 runs. With this, Rangpur won the fifth consecutive victory in BPL. Along with that, they also increased the gap with Comilla Victorians who are second in the points list. Chasing a big target of 212 runs, the start was not ideal for Chittagong. Shakib gave Rangpur the first breakthrough. Josh Brown was his victim in the third over of the innings. He scored 10 runs off 9 balls. After that, another Chittagong opener, Saikat Ali, kept one end in front, but none of the others could make the innings bigger
