Chittagong Kings 206 for 4 (Jamshed 56, Roy 43, Mahmudullah 43*) beat Duronto Rajshahi 153 (Junaid 42, Bravo 3-17) by 53 runs

The second match of the evening too didn't produce an evenly matched contest as Chittagong Kings' 206 proved too much for Duronto Rajshahi. Nasir Jamshed smashed 56 while Mahmudullah and Jason Roy hit 43 each to bring up the first 200-plus score of the tournament.

Jamshed smashed three sixes and five fours in his knock. England's Roy hit the same number of sixes in his 25-ball knock. Both Roy and Jamshed departed before the 15th over, setting the platform for Mahmudullah and Dwayne Bravo to unleash their fireworks. Bravo hit a 19-ball 38 to go with his partner's 18-ball unbeaten 43.

Bravo was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3 for 17. He truck twice in the first over of the innings and that set Rajshahi back in their chase. They failed to string together partnerships the highest being 60 for the third wicket between Abdul Razzaq and Junaid Siddique. The next highest stand was 27, for the seventh. Rajshahi also found it difficult to get on top of the spin duo of Enamul Haque jnr and Muttiah Muralitharan.
