Pakistan’s left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz registered his career-best figures in Twenty20 cricket to help Dhaka Platoon register a 74-run win against Rajshahi Royals in the ongoing season of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
The left-arm pacer started his spell with a triple-wicket maiden to hamper Royals chase of 175 runs. Riaz picked up the wickets of top-order batsmen Liton Das, Alok Kapali and Shoaib Malik to reduce Royals from 39-0 to 39-3.
