Afif Hossain’s long wait for a List A century finally ended on Thursday when he smashed an unbeaten 111 to guide Abahani to a comfortable 42-run win over Prime Bank Cricket Club in the Dhaka Premier League. The 23-year-old had to wait for six years and 106 matches to reach the three-figure mark in List A cricket, and he did it in style, hitting five sixes and six fours in his 101-ball knock.

Afif’s journey to his maiden List A Century is a story of perseverance and hard work. He made his debut in 2017 and has been a regular member of the Abahani team ever since. He has played some crucial innings for his side over the years, but the elusive century had always eluded him.
However, Afif did not lose hope and kept working hard on his game.

He continued to score runs and take wickets for his team, and finally, his hard work paid off. His century came at a crucial time for Abahani, who is currently leading the table in the ongoing season of the Dhaka Premier League.

Afif’s innings were a masterclass in pacing an innings. He took his time to settle in, scoring his first fifty runs off 61 deliveries. But once he got his eye in, there was no stopping him. He smashed the next fifty runs in just 36 balls, taking only 97 balls to reach his century.

Results of the Match

Afif’s century is a testament to his talent and hard work. It is also a reminder that success in cricket, as in life, often comes after a long and arduous journey. Afif’s perseverance and determination should inspire young cricketers around the world to keep working hard and never give up on their dreams.

With this win, Abahani has opened up a two-point lead at the top of the table over defending champions Sheikh Jamal DC, who are in second place. Khushdil Shah’s six-wicket haul also played a crucial role in Abahani’s win, but it was Afif’s century that stole the show.
