Miraz Hawlader of Khulna National High School and Taizul Islam of Bangladesh Railway Government High School hogged the spotlight in the Prime Bank School Cricket tournament at different venues yesterday.
Miraz hit 114 and captured eight wickets as his side defeated Bangabashi Madhamik School by 118 runs.
Left-arm spinner Taizul claimed eight wickets in Lalmonirhat but his outstanding individual success was not good enough for his side to win the match as BGB snatched a one-wicket victory, riding on Amit Hasan's unbeaten 26.
Taizul and Co. were all out on 159 runs in 46 overs, where Sidi Rahman struck a 151-ball 56 while the same number of runs came from extras.
In reply, BGB reached the target with 12 overs and one wicket remaining, despite Taizul's magical bowling figures of 10-2-23-8. BGB's scored the most, 36 runs, from extras while opener Fazle Rabby added 27 runs.
