Shawn scored 71 and took four wickets, while captain Yesin Arafat (46), Junaed Tanin (44 not out) and Jahidul Haque (25) also contributed with the bat for the winners.

Adeel Pirzada’s 88 led Shane Moss to 213-6, as Syed Ifthekar and Morshadur Rahman also picked up wickets for Scintilla.

Arafat said: “This win is a confidence boost for us. The boys played well and showed no fatigue despite fasting for so many long hours.”

Shaha Riadh’s Sunday League side celebrated a six-wicket win over Rose & Brown, with Tanin hitting an unbeaten 85 and Juwel Roy (40) also in the runs.

“This was a big game and the boys came up trumps,” said Riadh. “We thrive on pressure and our opponents presented us with a massive challenge.”
