They are yet to win a game in the tournament and will have to turn things around soon, if they are to make it to the top 4. As far as the Dhaka Dynamites are concerned, they have made it to the top of the table, tied with Barisal Bulls and Khulna Titans with six points. OUT! Mashrafe Mortaza b Shahid 47 (35)
