Defending champions Dhaka Dynamites restricted the table topper Sylhet Sixers on 101 runs in their match of the 5th Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Saturday.

Sent in to bat first, Sylhet lost nine wickets in 20 overs for their collection riding on the unbeaten stand of 49* off 7 overs between Abul Hasan and Taijul Islam in the 10th wicket stand.

Before that, Pakistani all-rounder googly-boy Shahid Afridi (4/12), Sri Lankan spinner Sunil Narine(3/10) and left handed local pace bowler Abu Hider (2/10) delivered four overs each to handle Dhaka's bowling department.

They -- Afridi, Narine, Hider -- destroyed 90 percent of Sylhet's batting strength in a fast mood, taking nine wickets for 53 runs in 13th over.

Number 9 batsman Abul Hasan top-scored with 30* off 26 balls, including three boundaries and one six while Taijul Islam (16* off 20b; 1x4), opener Danushka Gunathilaka (15 off 9b; 3x4) and skipper Nasir Hossain (10 off 14b;1x4) were the other double-digit scorer for Sylhet.
