5.55pm That's all from the first match of Sunday's double header. Come back soon as the fourth match of the BPL prepares to start off in under an hour. For now, it's bye from Deiva and Sreshth.

5.52pm We're ready for the presentation.

For the second game in a row, Upul Tharanga is the Man of the Match. He says: "Happy with how I'm batting. We've been training hard."

Winning captain Nasir Hossain: "Two win a row is massive. Credit to my boys, who have worked hard. Proud of my team. All credit to Nurul, but really our bowlers did really well to keep them down to 146. I told my top six to bat through the 20 overs, and that's what they did."

Losing captain Nabi. He says: "We were 10-15 runs short on this track. The way Sylhet started, they batted really well and we didn't bowl as well. We came back after 10, Rashid and Al-Amin bowled nicely for us. Samuels' job is to play until the twenty overs, he played well."

5.44pm The crowd is happy, the home team is ecstatic and the sluggish Whiteley looks very relieved. His slow innings made it very difficult for Sylhet towards the end, but Nurul ensured that the hard work from Fletcher and Tharanga at the top did not go to waste. Rashid Khan kept it tight, and DJ Bravo made interesting, but their total of 145 was always going to be tough to defend under the lights. Presentation in just a few minutes. Stick around.

Here's Liam Plunkett: "We played well, and we took it deep. That was important. Good partnership at the top, that helped. Yesterday we were really good, today not so much, but good to take the second win. Rashid bowled well for them, went for 12 and then conceded nothing after that. Love how loud the crowd was."

Bravo to Nurul Hasan, FOUR runs, Nurul has done it! He Finishes on 11 off three balls. Short on middle, the batsman charges down and pokes at it, takes the outside edge off his bat's shoulder. Short third man can't get to it, and that's all the batsmen want to see. Big celebrations. Sylhet Sixers win by four wickets.
Bravo to Plunkett, 1 run, slower ball (98 kph), on leg stump, misses the whip off his pads, and hits his pads. Dribbles away to short fine leg, they;re going for the dangerous single! They make it

Plunkett to face his first ball. Long on and long off in place. Deep midwicket and deep backward square in place too

Bravo to Nurul Hasan, 1 run, charges down again, making the full ball a low full toss, drilled towards cover
Bravo to Nurul Hasan, SIX runs, ohhhoo! Just flies over long on for a six! Slower ball back of a length on middle, Nurul backs away and lifts this over Bravo's head. Just enough connection, and Rashid can't catch it at long on. Nurul's delighted

Sylhet need Plunkett to hit some runs, but he's at the non-striker's. Nurul will take strike

Bravo to Shuvagata Hom, OUT, let's dance says Bravo! Slow and full on middle and leg, tries to play a cross-batted slog and hits his back pad, and rattles leg stump. Strikes first ball

Shuvagata Hom b Bravo 7 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Ten off the final over then. Who will Nabi hand the ball to? It's the first real close encounter of this season. DJ to bowl
