Earlier, Chittagong Vikings came out all guns blazing and registered their third win of the tournament in Match 16 against Rajshahi Kings at Chittagong on Friday. It was some serious bowling which helped them defend the target on a batting friendly surface. Taskin Ahmed bowled beautifully and chipped five wickets to see his side winning the game by 19 runs. Taskin broke the opponent’s spine by having five key wickets to his name.
