Leg-spinner Rishad Hossain claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in List-A cricket for losing sides Shinepukur Cricket Club against Brothers Union (BU) in the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) match at BKSP Ground 3 at Savar on Thursday.

Rishad finished with five for 49 as BU posted 222 for nine wickets thanks to Abdul Mazid's 95 after opting to bat first. 

But Shinepukur were bundled out for 196 in their chase, losing the match by 26 runs. Rishad was part of the Abahani Limited squad at the start of this year's DPL but later joined Shinepukur to get more opportunities. The leg-spinner has so far claimed nine wickets in three matches for Shinepukur. The 21-year-old has so far played just nine List-A games, three of which were ODIs. 

Despite being seen as a prospect for the national team, Rishad would hardly get opportunities at the club level as most teams prefer using off-spinners over wrist spinners.
