BKSP were in genuine danger to hit the new low in Bangladesh’s List A cricket’s history by being reduced to 26-6. But fortunately they managed to overcome the shamble even though they lost the match to Prime Bank Cricket Club by 172 runs.

The lowest total for any club from Bangladesh in List A cricket is Chittagong Division’s 30 against Sylhet at Bangabandhu National Stadium in 2002 in a one-day tournament of National Cricket League (NCL).

DPL however got the List A status in 2013, so the record of the lowest total in Dhaka League is not available before that year.

However Cricket Coaching School’s (CCS) 35 against Abahani in a DPL match at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah in 2002 was the second lowest score.

Khulna Division’s 41 against Rajshahi at Jessore Cricket Stadium in 2004 NCL was the third lowest total.

The fourth lowest was Victoria Sporting Club’s 46 against Khelaghar Samaj Kallayan Samity in 2017’s DPL, also at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium.

BKSP’s 50 against Prime Bank Cricket Club now is the fifth lowest total and the venue was Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium.

Coincidentally all lowest total of DPL was registered at the same venue-- the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium, Fatullah.

Parvez Hossain Emon was the only batsman of BKSP to reach double digit figure, making 15 and it was such vital that it helped BKSP to avoid the ultimate shamble.

West Indies Under-19 was bowled out for 18 in match against Barbados in 2007, which remains the lowest List A total.
