Shoriful’s heroics at the finish, which also made him the eighth Bangladeshi bowler to record a hat-trick in T20s, helped his team limit the reigning champions to 143 for six after Dhaka put Comilla in to bat at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium as the BPL’s 10th season began.
Imrul Kayes led the way with 66 off 56 balls, followed by Towhid Hridoy’s 47 off 41 balls. Shoriful finished with scores of 4-0-27-3, while fellow fast Taskin Ahmed took two wickets for thirty runs.
