Allround Ashraful ignites KPL on first match

|| Desk Report ||

Bangladesh’s former captain Mohammad Ashraful ignited the Kent Premier League on his first match in the season, putting up a scintillating all-round performance in England to script his side Blackneath Cricket Club’s massive 112-run victory over Sevenoaks Vine.

Ashraful, considered as Bangladesh’s first poster boy in cricket, claimed five wickets, conceding 31 runs in his 10 overs with two maidens.

In came in batting, Ashraful struck 31 ball-47, smashing four fours and a six, which played a vital role in the side’s gigantic victory.

Earlier Blackneath cricket club captain Chris Witlets won the toss and elected to bat first and his batsmen proved the decision preciously right by amassing 271-6 in 50 overs.

Opener Dipaon Paul and Tanvir Sikandar also played brilliantly alongside Mohammad Ashraful. Dipaon played a masterful 76 runs and Sikandar propped up his game magnificently for his 70 runs.  

Another opener George Weals scored 42 runs. Andrew Reid Dick and John Bowden took two wickets each for the Sevenoaks Vine Cricket club.  In pursuit of mammoth 272 runs, Sevenoakes got all out for 159 runs. Ashraful’s mesmerizing bowling played a big part in this collapse. 

They played for 41.4 overs. Alongside Ashraful, Jahid Ahmed and Tanvir Sikandar also played very well, picking up two wickets apiece.

For Sevenoaks Vine only captain Micheal Barber and Luk Skelar stepped up amid the odds. Barber scored 62 and Skelar scored 44 runs for them.

Brief Score:

Blackneath cricket club: 271-6 in 50 overs ( Paul 76, Sikander 70, Ashraful 47: Dick 2-43, Bowden 2-50 )

Sevenoaks Vine Cricket club: 159 all out in  41.4 overs  ( Barber 62, Sklemar 44, Bowden 17; Ashraful 5-31, Zahid 2-12 )
