Teenager scores 320 runs in BCBs age-level tournament

Left-handed batter Rifat Beg achieved a historic milestone in the ongoing season of the Sheikh Kamal U18 National Cricket Tournament 2023-24 by scoring a triple century.

This remarkable feat marks the first instance of a triple hundred in this prestigious tournament.

Representing the renowned Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishthan (BKSP), Rifat showcased his talent against Dhaka Metro U-18 at Shahid Kamruzzaman Stadium in Rajshahi.

In the first innings of the match, Dhaka Metro struggled, managing only 143 runs. BKSPs captain, Tafsir Arafat Tasib, claimed four wickets, while his teammate Farhan Shahriar secured three dismissals.

In response, BKSP dominated the game, posting a formidable total of 549 runs in their first innings, with Rifat contributing a record-breaking 320 runs from 483 balls, including 29 boundaries and four sixes. His remarkable innings spanned approximately 650 minutes, equivalent to nearly 11 hours.

Fahim Muntasir, Rifats opening partner, also made a notable contribution with 57 runs, ensuring BKSPs commanding position in the match.     —UNB
