Pacer Mustafizur Rahman four-wicket haul coupled by opener Liton Das brilliant fifty helped Gazi Group Chattogram earn yet another win in the Bangabandhu Twenty20 Cup as they thrashed as Gemcon Khulna by nine wickets at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Saturday.

It was all too easy for Gazi Group Chattogram in their Bangabandhu T20 Cup encounter against Gemcon Khulna as the star-studded Khulna were bundled out for 86 -- the lowest total of the five-team tournament so far- and later a blistering unbeaten fifty from stylish opener Liton saw Chattogram chase down the meagre total in just 13.4 overs.

Mustafizur picked up four wickets while Taijul Islam and Nahidul Islam took two wickets each forced Khulna to put the lowest team total so far in the tournament.

Khulna’s ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan continued his lean patch in the tournament when he made only three with the bat and remained wicket less in his stipulated four overs.

Chasing a paltry target of 87 runs, Chattttogram reached 87-1 in just 13.4 overs with opener Liton making unbeaten 53 off 46 balls that included nine boundaries. Soumya also chipped in 26.

With the back-to-back wins by big margins Chattogram were on the top of the points table with a healthy net run-rate while Khulna suffered their straight second defeat after their miraculous last over win in the opening game.
