SL Opener Upul Tharanga with WI opener Andre Fletcher added their third fifty-plus opening stand in three matches to power Sylhet Sixers to their third successive win the BPL. After toppling defending champions Dhaka Dynamites and former champions Comilla Victorians, Sylhet beat Rajshahi Kings by 33 runs.

This was Opener Upul Tharanga's 3rd consecutive 50 (1x6 - 5x4) in BPL (Upul had scored 69*, 51, 50 = 170 runs @ 85 Av - 136 SR in 3 matches played so far) and he is currently the leading run maker in BPL. Tharanga/ Fletcher had become the most prolific Openers in current BPL with blistering match winning performances.

He is carrying his good form shown in limited over cricket during past 12 months, being the leading run scorer in ODIs for SL scoring nearly 1000 runs, since Nov 2016 - Nov 2017:

WU Tharanga - 25 ing/ 944 runs @ 47 AV / 84 SR- 2 x 100+ / 6 x 50+

Thriving on great upfront 100+ (scored @ 10+ runs per over) launching pad given by Openers Tharanga & Fletcher from initial 10 overs, No4 batter Gunathilake also had scored quick 42 runs to boost the total over 200. It is good to see SL players are doing well and in sparkling form.

How many SL guys are playing in this BPL including Sanga, but so far no outstanding performances from anyone else (despite facing same opponent sides). .

What a great show by tharanga. Against an excellent bowling attack even the best T20 batsmen like Gayle or Warner would envy. But who is Farhad Reza, Hossain Ali, Mehidy Hasan? Are they in the top 10 T20 bowlers in the world? I couldn't find them in any list? Is it because they forgot to put their names on the list?

Only if he could replicate this against an international bowling sides and being a consistent performer rather than go missing when we need a senior most player to stand up and deliver. If he did then we won't be talking about him. Unfortunately he doesn't and fails miserably and moreover letting the side down every single time.

Talking about a flat track bully flogging a dead horse. No matter how hard people try to pump him up, you can't revive someone who is on life support.

@ Donkeys Incorporated:

Tharanga Tops the current BPL T20 batting by a huge margin of runs & Average over the 2nd ranked Fletcher (WI Opener) his opening partner in BPL. His side won 3 out of 4 played so far & Tharanga was the MoM in 2 & highest scorer with 3 consecutive 50s in all 3 matches his side won. Tharanga's 18 x 4 is the highest boundaries scored by any player in the tournament so far.

Ha ha Haa... Donkeys who cannot digest Upul's continuing batting form can poop everywhere... but no matter what, this is a premiere league tournament of a test playing nation with ample international player participation.

1) WU Tharanga : 4 ings -196 runs - 65.33 Av - 132 SR - 3 x 50 - 18 x4 & 5 x6

2) ADS Fletcher : 4 ings - 151 runs - 37.75 Av - 132 SR - 1 x 50 - 16 x4 & 8

3) L Ronchi : 2 ing -118 runs - 59.00 Av - 210 SR - 1 x 50 - 11 x4 & 10 x610

4) MN Samuels : 2 ing -95 runs - 95.00 Av - 146 SR - 1 x 50 - 6 x4 & 4 x6

Tharanga is the most productive SL ODI player during past 12 months and
he is carrying his good form shown in limited over cricket being the leading run scorer in ODIs for SL scoring nearly 1000 runs, since Nov 2016 - Nov 2017:

No1) WU Tharanga - 25 ing/ 944 runs @ 47 AV / 84 SR- 2 x 100+ / 6 x 50+
