Trouble continues for Beximco Dhaka as they suffered third straight defeat in the competition as Gemcon Khulna won the second match of day by 37 runs thanks to player of the match Shuvagata Hom’s all-round heroics.

Khulna started their innings slowly after losing 3 wickets for 37 in the powerplay including Shakib, Anamul and Jahurul. Two veteran Mahmudullah and Imrul Kayes fought back to help their side posting a solid total on the board. Mahumudllah played the highest knock of 45 while Imrul contributed 29 runs. Hom then made unbeaten 15 off just 15 balls as Khulna ended their innings on 146 for 8. Rubel Hossain took 3 wickets for 28.

Dhaka faced early trouble in their innings as Khulna bowlers picked up couple of wickets in a hurry. Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim along with Yasir Ali tried but it was not enough as no other batsmen managed to cross single digit scores. Hom this came back to haunt with the ball to claim 3 wickets for 13 as Dhaka were all out for 109.
