Nailbiting finish. What an end to the game. Dhaka were sloppy on the field but in the end manage to just hang in there for a narrow victory. Rossouw and Mohammad Mithun took them close with that partnership but a flurry of late wickets, highlighted by the hat-trick from Al Islam, cost Rangpur. Dhaka maintain their unbeaten run and their position on top of the table.

Mashrafe Mortaza says: "Although we ended up on the losing side we need to prove ourselves in the next match. We did very well in the middle part. The way Rossouw and Mithun batted was excellent. We came very close, we could have finished it. It's a big mistake we made, hopefully one that we can fix in the next match."

Aliss Islam is Man of the Match.

Shakib, winning captain: "We knew he (Aliss) had the potential. Luckily he showed his class. Long way to go for him, but he did very well today. That's the beauty of captaincy: if it comes off it looks good, otherwise you end up looking bad. Both teams played a very good game of cricket. There are areas where we can improve. It's a long tournament. Winning close matches gives you that extra confidence."

That's all we have from this game. Thanks for joining us.

Al Islam to Farhad Reza, OUT, he gets it! Hat-trick for Al Islam. He wheels away in celebration. Beautifully bowled! On a length, Reza closes the face, playing for the turn, but it spins minimally to take the leading edge to first slip's hands.
