2024 BPL: Towhid Stages A Comeback, Guides Victorians To Commanding Victory

At the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, Towhid Hridoy staged a remarkable performance for the defending BPL champions, the Comilla Victorians, on Wednesday. After enduring a disappointing first-ball dismissal in their previous match, Hridoy bounced back with an outstanding unbeaten knock of 91 runs from just 47 deliveries. His aggressive batting, featuring seven fours and seven sixes, propelled Comilla to a comfortable seven-wicket triumph over the Khulna Tigers.

Choosing to bat first, Khulna struggled to build momentum, concluding their innings at 164/8. The Victorians’ bowlers, led by Moeen Ali (2/46) and Matthew Forde (2/36), effectively contained the opposition’s scoring.

Although Comilla faced an early setback with the dismissal of Litton Das, Will Jacks (18) stabilised the innings. Towhid then showcased his batting prowess, reaching his fifty in only 27 balls. His earlier century in the tournament highlighted his importance, and his stellar performance on Wednesday solidified his status as a key player for the defending champions. Johnson Charles (13) and Jaker Ali (40*) provided valuable support as Comilla sealed the victory with 21 balls to spare.

With this win, the Comilla Victorians maintain a comfortable position in the BPL points table, while the Khulna Tigers continue to struggle with their fifth consecutive defeat.

In the day’s other fixture, Fortune Barishal bounced back from recent setbacks to defeat Durdanto Dhaka by 27 runs. Tamim Iqbal anchored Barishal’s innings with a well-made 71, while Alex Hales (89*) fought hard for Dhaka. However, Barishal’s bowlers, led by Khaled Ahmed and Mohammad Saifuddin who both claimed three wickets each, ensured victory for their team. This triumph propels Barishal to third place in the standings.

Conversely, Dhaka’s woes continue as they endure a record nine consecutive defeats, marking the worst losing streak in BPL history.
