9.34pm That's all we have for you today. Join us for more BPL action tomorrow. This is Saurabh Somani, signing off.

9.16pm Two more points for Comilla. Easy-paced enough chase in the end despite the wobble at the start. But once they had bowled out Sylhet for 68, it would have taken something extraordinary to win. That didn't happen. Comiilla have 6 points, and are in second place on the points table.

David Warner: "It wasn't ideal, but you have to complement the way they bowled. They took ten wickets which were genuine wickets, there weren't any poor shots. And when you lose wickets up front you get in a defensive mindset. They really took it away from us in that first six overs. The wet outfield helped, with the ball coming on better once it was wet. That's something we have to think about. We need to minimise the damage when the ball is dry and we're batting, and then look to control things when bowling with a wet ball."

Mahedi Hasan is the man of the match. "Everyone dreams of doing well and so did I. I was normal on the hat-trick ball. I was confident after Saifuddin had bowled a good first over."

Imrul Kayes, the winning skipper. "Completely team effort for a good performance. I'll give all credit to our spinners, especially Mahedi. Wahab came today and came straight here. It's very difficult to play here, but he has done that. Overall, our pacers are bowling excellently. I thought if we stayed at the wicket we could easily finish the game (with Shamsur). Everyone is happy with the win and our confidence is up. Last match we played brilliantly but we lost, but that can happen."

Afif Hossain to Imrul Kayes, 2 runs, flat and angled into the batsman, flicked to deep square leg and it's in the gap, so they can pick up the two runs needed for victory. Comfortable eight-wicket win in the end, and they'll have boosted their net run-rate by getting there in 11.1 overs

Al-Amin Hossain to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, flicked to fine leg
Al-Amin Hossain to Imrul Kayes, no run, good comeback by the bowler with a slower bouncer, the batsman shaped to pull then decided against it
Al-Amin Hossain to Imrul Kayes, FOUR runs, carved over extra-cover with great timing and power. Too full on the stumps, and he steps away and lets his arms swing freely. They want to finish it in this over
Al-Amin Hossain to Shamsur Rahman, 1 run, length ball, nipping back in, he has a swat at it, but it rolls to midwicket off the under-edge
Al-Amin Hossain to Imrul Kayes, 1 leg bye, good length on leg stump, pitched outside leg though. Beats his forward defence and raps him on the back pad, nipping off the seam. Can't be lbw because it pitched outside leg. They take a leg-bye to short third man
