Gazi Group Chattogram beat Fortune Barishal by seven wickets in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup on Thursday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium riding on an impressive batting performance by Soumya Sarkar.
Soumya took 37 balls to hit 62 with seven fours and three sixes to guide Chattogram to their sixth win in seven matches.
Barishal’s playoff berth hinged on this game but the Tamim Iqbal-led side failed to capitalise the chance. They now have to win their last game of the league phase against Beximco Dhaka, and wait for Chattogram if they can beat Minister Group Rajshahi in their last game.
In Thursday’s game, Chattgoram won the toss and sent Barishal to bat first. They made a stunning start adding 87 runs in the first wicket stand. Saif Hassan was the first wicket to fall posting 46 off 33 balls with six fours and to sixes.
