Performer of the Match: Shakib’s late lift stuns fading Victorians

Star-studded Dhaka Dynamites have registered their 5th win from 8 matches in AKS BPL T20 2016 which raised them to second place of the point table as their captain Shakib Al Hasan finally picked his form to lead his side from the front. Shakib’s blistering knock lifted DD to a huge total of 170 which they defended with much ease, defeating the Comilla Victorians by 32 runs.

Shakib went into the middle when his team lost 2 wickets for 83. Shakib took some time before opening the face of his bat, albeit rotated strike consistently to keep the run-machine alive. He gradually started to hit big shots and eventually scored an unbeaten 41 from 26 with 4 fours and 1 six. His effort proved instrumental as the Dynamites confirmed the win by 32 runs. With the ball, he also picked a wicket and took an impressive catch.

However, in the post-match press conference, Shakib claimed that he is not thinking much about his personal performance, “We have been looking forward to playing the final this season and doing everything we can do to achieve the target. It does not matter who is performing, we want to put a combined team-effort to clinch the title.”
