Jacks ends Bangladesh Premier League as leading run scorer Skip to main content

Surrey’s Will Jacks saw his stint with Bangladesh Premier League side Chattogram Challengers finish at the Qualifier stage, but still ended as the tournament’s leading run scorer.

Jacks hit 414 runs across 11 innings, four ahead of West Indian Andre Fletcher and seven in front of Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal. With only the final left to play once he was knocked out, only Comilla Victorians and Fortune Barishal remain in the tournament.

Faf du Plessis was the leading run scorer for Comilla with 291 runs and Shakib-Al-Hasan has 277 runs for Barishal, but they scored only four and seven respectively in the final.

The 23-year-old hit a high score of 92 not out from just 57 balls last week against Sylhet Sunrisers. He went beyond the half-century four times, hitting 43 fours and 19 sixes from a 267 balls across the entire tournament.

Highlights from his innings are below.

92* from 57 balls against Sylhet Sunrisers

57 from 37 balls against Comilla Victorians

69 from 42 balls against Comilla Victorians

52 from 19 balls against Sylhet Sunrisers

Jacks was Player of the Tournament in the 2020 Vitality Blast as Surrey reached the final before several incredible performances in 2021; including 70 from 24 balls at Lord’s.

He will be back in action for Surrey this season, including in our Vitality Blast campaign. The best way to see him play at The Kia Oval in 2022 is with a Club Membership, priced at £20 for adults and from £71 for adults.
