Ash, Nazir lift Glads→ Sports Reporter from Chittagong
Sylhet Royals wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal attends to Dhaka Gladiators opener Imran Nazir after a Peter Trego delivery had hit the batsman on the head during their BPL T20 match at the Chittagong Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Wednesday.
 A brilliant opening partnership between Imran Nazir and Mohammad Ashraful powered Dhaka Gladiators to a convincing eight-wicket win over Sylhet Royals in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 at the Chittagong Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Wednesday.

Earlier, winning the toss, Dhaka skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza invited Sylhet to bat first.

Sylhet Royals, without a win in the six matches they had played so far, were already morally down and the Glads took advantage of the situation.

Though Mashrafe started off with an expensive over, giving away 12 runs, the compensation was made by the speedster in the third over as he got rid of Sylhet opening batsman Kamran Akmal.

Dhaka bowlers then maintained the momentum as Azhar Mahmood dismissed Sohail Tanvir and Imrul Kayes in the fourth and the sixth overs respectively. The third pacer of the side, Rana Naved, was on fire picking up three wickets.

Sylhet middle order batsman Peter Trego scored 35 runs, the highest for his side while Naeem Islam scored 28 with three boundaries and one over boundary as Sylhet posted 128 runs in 20 overs, losing seven wickets.

Dhaka gave everyone a surprise sending Mohammad Ashraful to open the innings. Their batsmen, keeping the importance of run rate in mind, chased down the target in just 12.5 overs.

Ashraful scored 40 runs in 33 balls with six boundaries while Imran Nazir scored 31 before suffering a nasty blow to his head. He was retired hurt. Azhar Mahmood made 29 runs off 15 deliveries and Keiron Pollard smashed 22 in just six balls to guide Gladiators to victory.

Sylhet Royals: 128/7 (20 ov)

(P Trego 38, Naved 3/18)

Dhaka Glads: 132/2 (12.5 ov)

(Ashraful 40, Mahmood 29)

Result: Dhaka won by 8 wkts

MOM: Azhar Mahmood (Dhaka)
