NCL fifth round today


League leaders Dhaka take on Sylhet in the fifth round encounter of the Ispahani Mirzapore Tea 8th National Cricket League at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium today.

Dhaka who drew their last game against fellow form team Rajshahi now have an easier home game against Sylhet. Rajshahi are also at their own den -- the Rajshahi Divisional Stadium -- against Barisal.

Away at the Khulna Divisional Stadium, scene of Bangladesh's nine-wicket triumph over visiting Zimbabwe on Thursday, hosts Khulna take on poor finishers Chittagong. The port city side has failed to dislodge most of the tail that they have encountered as well as being at the receiving end of Mohammad Ashraful's record-breaking 263.
