That's that for the night. Fourth last-over finish in as many matches has set up this season superbly. There are plenty of videos and post-match stuff to watch out for. Cheers!

Kevon Cooper is the Player of the Match: "We wanted to get 140, and with the ball, it was all about partnerships, which made the difference. When I went in to bat, I realised their bowlers were bowling slower deliveries. We planned to hit hard lengths."

Mahmudullah : The bowlers bowled well with the wet ball, Sami and Cooper were outstanding. The plan was to just wait for the loose balls. I thought we would be able to get to 140. 155 was quite competitive on that wicket. Credit to the bowlers for the way they came out and bowled.

Shakib : We conceded a little too many in the last five overs. We didn't accelerate well in the middle overs. That put a lot of pressure on us. Our top order and middle order needs to step up. I don't think we relaxed after we had them four down for not too many. Credit to them for playing well through that phase.

Rangpur have been brilliant. To recover from three down for nothing to post 155 and then defend it in the manner they have has been heartening. The comeback was kickstarted by their captain Mahmudullah. It's only fitting that he takes the winning catch as well. Cooper too played his part with both bat and ball. At different stages in the chase, it looked like Rangpur would get there easily, but the dismissals of Perera and Mithun towards the end turned it around.

Cooper to Abu Jayed, OUT, Full on the leg side, he looks to go over midwicket but can't get enough bat, Mahmudullah at midwicket runs backwards, goes full stretch, times his jump to perfection and pulls off a tumbling catch. Superb stuff

Cooper to Al-Amin, OUT, excellent delivery, sees the batsman backing away and follows him with the short ball which he can't get any bat to, they set off for the run but Taylor's underarms the throw to Cooper who runs to the striker's end to whip the bails off. That should seal it for Rangpur

Cooper to Sammy, OUT, looks to clear long-off but can only manage to get the toe end, the fielder in the deep kept his eyes on the ball, called loud and clear, settled underneath it, watched it swirl but held it together. Superbly done by Seekkuge Prasanna. His teammates can't be happier. No Sammy magic tonight.

Mohammad Sami to Mohammad Mithun, OUT, right in the slot and he picks the long-on fielder. Didn't really connect but full marks to Sami for bowling it full and straight. The celebration in the Barisal camp tells you a story. Gone for 55.

Mohammad Sami to Mohammad Mithun, 1 run, OUT, sweetly timed, backs away and strokes it to deep cover. The throw comes in to the bowler who fires a five-yard throw to the stumps and Perera is gone. Looks like he's two inches short. Drama all around. Is there another twist?
