Last Friday, the 28th match of the Bangladesh Premier League 2022 featured Fortune Barishal versus Minister Group Dhaka.

Fortune Barishal, the table-topping team in the BPL 2022, has 13 points after nine matches in the eighth edition. They have won 6 games and got defeated twice while the other one finished with no result. The net run rate for this team is +0.061.

Even if they lose their final league match, Fortune Barishal will finish in the top two at the completion of the league stage. The team, on the other hand, would like to carry its winning streak into the playoffs.

Minister Group Dhaka, on the other hand, is now in third place in the points standings. In BPL 2022, they have 9 points from the matches they have participated.

Fortune Barishal had lost by 4 wickets against Minister Group Dhaka in the previous match between the sides in the ongoing round. Mahmudullah, the winning captain, was named man of the match in the tournament for his run-a-ball 47 and 1/31.

Mahmudullah had won the toss and elected to bowl first in the match. Fortune Barishal was reduced to 129/8 in 20 overs by Minister Group Dhaka, who then chased down the mark with 15 balls to spare. Minister Group Dhaka were 10/4 at one point in the match, but they rallied thanks to a 69-run partnership between Mahmudullah and Shuvagata Hom.

Fortune Barishal, on the other side, crushed Sylhet Sunrisers' chances of making the BPL playoffs by 12 runs. Barishal sat out Colin Ingram's 49-ball 90 before sealing out the match with tight overs in the second part of the pursuit after building a strong 199 for 4 batting first.

Shakib Al Hasan had another all-round performance, but it was his 2 for 23 from four overs that made the difference this time. After part-timer Najmul Hossain Shanto dismissed the well-set Ingram and Mizanur Rahman off consecutive balls to put the squeeze back on Sylhet, his fourth over for three runs enabled Barishal turn the corner.

With 13 points from nine matches, Barishal maintains its lead at the top of the standings. Sylhet is still rooted at the bottom of the table after suffering their sixth defeat in eight games.
