    Bravo stars in Chittagong win in BPL

    Dhaka: West Indies allrounder Dwayne Bravo shone with both bat and ball as Chittagong Kings hammered Duronto Rajshahi by 53 runs in the second match of the inaugural T20 Bangladesh Premier League at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Friday.

    Electing to bat, the Kings lost their openers Tamim Iqbal and Jahurul Islam with just 31 runs on the board inside six overs. But Nasir Jamshed (56 off 38 balls), Surrey's Jason Roy (43 off 25 balls), Bangladesh international Mahmudullah (43 not out off 18 balls) and West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo (38 not out off 19 balls) combined to take their team to a mammoth 206 for 4 in 20 overs.

    The Rajshahi were never really in it and folded for 153 in the 20th over.

    Apart from Junaid Siddique (42) and Sabbir Rahman (41 not out), the rest of the Rajshahi batsmen were disastrous.

    Bravo and Enamul Haque Junior picked up three wickets each for the Kings.

    With the win, the Kings bagged two points.
