Iftikhar Ahmed played an unbeaten 51-run inning from 31 balls, to take Fortune Barishal to 194-5 in 20 overs against Khulna Tigers on Friday in Bangladesh Premier League.
Right-hand batsman has now become the joint second leading run-scorer in the ongoing season, with his teammate Shakib Al Hasan also with 347 runs. Iftikhar came to the crease at 97-2 in 12th over, and stitched a 52-run partnership with Shakib to set a perfect platform for finish.
The 32-year-old smashed three fours and as many sixes in his blistering knock. Iftikhar took a particular liking to Mark Deyal and Paul van Meekeren, hitting for a six and four each. Earlier in the season, Iftikhar scored his maiden century from only 45 balls against Rangpur Riders. can you rewrite the content
