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+
