Ahmed Shehzad made 61 runs to steer his side Comilla Victorians to an eight-wicket win over Barisal Bulls in their Bangladesh Premier League match yesterday.

The stylish opener put up a 93-run opening partnership with Imrul Kayes (46) and then shared 27 runs with Marlon Samuels to take his side to 120 before he was dismissed by being caught by wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim off compatriot Rumman Raees’ delivery.

Shehzad’s knock took his total runs tally to 201 from six matches at an average of 40.20 and made him the top scorer for his side in the tournament.
