The right-arm pace bowling all-rounder became the fifth Bangladeshi bowler to score a hat-trick in 20 overs of cricket.
Babu took 4 wickets for 21 runs in 3.1 overs. This is his best bowling record in T20 cricket.
Rupganj captain Naeem Islam decided to bat first after winning the toss.
But thanks to Alauddin Babu’s hat-trick performance, Rupganj’s innings was stopped by only 111 runs.
The highest 37 runs came from the bat of captain Naeem Islam. Besides, the second highest 23 runs came from Sabbir Rahman’s bat.
