Sylhet Sixers skipper David Warner’s untimely dismissal dampened his side’s chances of posting a challenging total for Dhaka Dynamites. Warner came into bat at number four in the sixth over after both openers were dismissed. He held one end up but Sylhet kept losing wickets from the other end and were stuttering at 86-5 at the end of 13th over. Warner and wicketkeeper Jaker Ali then launched a counter attack, adding 63 runs of 35 balls for the sixth wicket. With two overs to go Sylhet were on 138-5, when Dhaka skipper Sakib al Hasan came into ball. Jaker took a single of the first ball before Warner picked up consecutive doubles from the next two deliveries followed by a six over long-off in the fourth ball to reach his highest BPL score of 63. Warner tried to repeat the shot in the next ball but failed to connect and gave a catch to Mohammad Naim. Sylhet only managed eight runs of the final over to reach 158-8, a total which Dhaka chased down with ease.
