The Dhaka Premier League is set to resume after the three day break for Pahela Baishakh festivities.
Abahani would play Partex Sporting Club with Mahmudullah leading them; Brothers Union would face off with Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club, while Legends of Rupganj would play Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi with Mushfiqur Rahim and Abdur Razzak going head to head. The second round of the league promises excitement.
Partex Sporting were disappointing in their last game and Abahani would be hoping to ride on their good run to get a victory. They defeated Khelaghar Samaj Kallyan Samiti though it was a keen contested one. Abahani had lost three wickets only for Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain to jointly help them recover. Hossain’s century, which is now regular, sealed victory for them.
Partex Sporting, who are playing in the DPL for the first time, are still struggling with the demands of playing at the top level. Against Abahani, they would rely on first class games’ star and new addition Yashpal Singh. The foreigner scored a half century in the last match but he would face tougher opposition.
