Sylhet Sixers 180 for 6 (Roy 42, Mustafizur 2-43) beat Rajshahi Kings 104 (Fazle 50, Tanvir 3-17, Nawaz 3-22) by 76 runs

How the game played out

Sylhet Sixers climbed out of the bottom of the Bangladesh Premier League points table with a 76-run win over Rajshahi Kings in this season's first match played in Chattogram. Sohail Tanvir and Mohammad Nawaz took three wickets each to headline an excellent Sylhet bowling performance to shoot Rajshahi out for 104 in 18.2 overs.

Laurie Evans' early dismissal rocked Rajshahi, who failed to gain any momentum in their chase of Sylhet's 180 for 6.

Sylhet earlier put up a strong total, mainly because of a 62-run third-wicket stand between Jason Roy and Afif Hossain. Roy, in his first innings for Sylhet, struck four fours and two sixes in his 28-ball 42, while Afif scored 28 in 29 balls. Towards the end, Tanvir slammed four fours in his unbeaten 23 off nine balls.

Turning points

Sylhet added 90 runs in the second half of their innings despite losing a set Roy at the end of the tenth over.

Zakir Hasan and Fazle Mahmud took up 5.2 overs to add 36 runs, and that didn't really help Rajshahi to recover from their three early losses.

Run-rate pressure led to Fazle, Christiaan Jonker and Mehidy Hasan falling in the 15th over to Nawaz.

Star of the day

The experienced Tanvir wasn't the captain for this game, but he delivered a very good all-round performance. First, he blasted 23 in quick time before picking up three wickets.

The big miss

Soft dismissals hurt Rajshahi in their pursuit of 181. First, Mominul Haque's attempted clip off Taskin Ahmed went straight to short fine-leg, and then Ryan ten Doeschate was bowled off a really short delivery from Alok Kapali.

Where the teams stand

Rajshahi are stuck in fifth place with three games remaining, while Sylhet have returned to the sixth spot following the win.
