Comilla breeze into 3rd straight BPL final

Comilla Victorians' skipper Litton Kumer Das, and batter Towhid Hridoy smashed fifties to power their side into a third successive Bangladesh Premier League T20 final. Comilla beat Rangpur Riders by six wickets in the first qualifier at the Sher-e Bangla National Cricket Satdium in Dhaka on Monday (Feb 26). However, Rangpur will get another chance to reach the final if they beat Fortune Barishal, winners of the Eliminator match, in the second qualifier on Wednesday (Feb 28).

Litton smashed four sixes and nine fours for his 57-ball 83 – his highest score in this edition – and Hridoy put away four sixes and five fours in a 43-ball 64-run knock to help Comilla chase down 186-run target in 18.3 overs.

Moeen Ali hit the winning runs as he smashed a six over mid-wicket to finish off proceedings.

Earlier, all-rounder Jimmy Neesham steered Rangpur to 185 for six with a 49-ball 97 decorated with eight fours and seven sixes.
