Tector Guides Sylhet Strikers Against Khulna Tigers

Irish star Harry Tector guided Sylhet Strikers to a five-wicket win over Khulna Tigers in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League, country’s lone franchise-based T20 tournament, at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur on Friday.

It was Khulna’s third successive defeat in the tournament after making a flying start by winning the opening four games of the competition. 

The third win for Sylhet also keeps them in contention for a place in the playoffs. 

Tector smashed 61 off 52 balls after receiving a lucky reprieve on zero by Rubel Hossain while Ryan Burl struck a quick-fire 16-ball 32 not out as they chased down the target of 154 runs in 19 overs to complete their third win in the tournament.

Earlier, Khulna skipper Anamul Haque struck an unbeaten 67 off 58 balls while Habibur Rahman Sohan made a 30-ball 43 to help their side post 153-4 in 20 overs after they elected to bat first.

“Yeah, definitely feels like we’re in a better place now than say where we were maybe a week ago. And yeah, it feels like we’ve got a bit of momentum on our side. We’re probably gonna have to still get at least two, if not three wins. But it’s not out of the realms of possibility just yet. So, pretty excited,” Tector said after the game.

“We’ve had a few different opening combinations, but I guess today was good. We are only one down in the powerplay and it just gives you a bit more of a chance with wickets in hand at the back end to sort of come home strong like we did today,” he added.
