9.42 pm That's all from Mirpur. A bottom-of-the-table clash tonight, where Chittagong Vikings beat Rajshahi Kings by 45 runs. All from me for the evening, and also from both teams for this season. We'll see you tomorrow, for two very important games. Hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of all the BPL action today. See you all tomorrow! It's Sreshth Shah, signing off!

9.37 pm Right, we're ready for the presentation. First up, the losing captain Mushfiqur Rahim. He says: "Our bowlers didn't execute our plans in the Powerplay. Ronchi and Reece were good, and we weren't good with our catching. Samit's knock was a great one, wasn't an easy wicket to bat on. We needed someone till the end. The whole tournament as a whole was really disappointing. Hope to regroup and come back stronger. All the best to the top four teams."

Now the winning captain, Luke Ronchi. He says: "It was a fantastic game, all around, both with bat and ball. Reece and Raza continued their batting form with the ball as well. Taskin, excellent too. Making Reece bat higher worked really well. Overall, we lost a lot of close games. We didn't get demolished in too many games, so that's a positive. We've just been bad at finishing games, which is important between a win and a loss. We're leaving with a smile on our face, especially with the final win. The support from Chittagong and elsewhere has been superb. A cool place to play cricket!"

And Luis Reece is the Man of the Match! For his all-round performance of 80 and a wicket in his three overs. He says: "I open to bat back at home, so good to get an opportunity tonight. A great team performance. Luke knew I wanted to bat top 3 but I had to wait my turn given the quality in our batting. The wicket was a bit 'stoppy', but we knew if had a platform we'd score big. Especially with Raza at the end still left. We were happy with 194."

9.33 pm Hand shakes all around. It's been a difficult campaign for both teams this season. Don't forget, Rajshahi were runners-up last year. Lots of 'what if's' this season, but Chittagong Vikings finish last this season despite the win today. The wooden spoon is theirs. Be back with the presentation in a few minutes.
