In their last match in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL), Sylhet Thunder put up another wretched batting performance to be restricted to 141-5 against Cumilla Warriors at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

Sylhet had already lost 10 matches in their 11 outings but is in quest of a victory in a bid to bow out the tournament with a winning note.

Being sent to bat first they however made a slow start with captain Andre Fletcher particularly failing to get it tough to score runs.

His fellow opener Abdul Mazid batted till the last over and scored team’s highest 45 off 40 with two fours and one six. Fletcher was out on 22 after which Johnson Charles’ showed an intention to pace the innings.

Charles made 15 ball-26, including one four and two sixes.

Charles’ dismissal further stifled the innings with Cumilla bowlers coming up with some disciplined bowling.

Sri Lankan recruit Jeevan Mendis took some big hit towards the end to blast 11 ball-23 with two fours and one six as Sylhet could propel the score past 140.

Al-Amin Hossain and David Wiese scalped two wickets apiece for Cumilla, for whom a victory is badly needed to keep them alive in the play-off race.
