Right then, that brings an end to our coverage of this game. Be back tomorrow with more. Until then, it's goodbye!

Danushka Gunathilaka is Man of the Match. "We're happy as a team and proud of ourselves. Looking forward to continuing my good form, so let's see how it goes."

Darren Sammy is unavailable, so Mushfiqur Rahim is out to talk on behalf of Rajshahi. "I thought 200 was chaseable. Probably difficult but not unchaseable. But we lost wickets. I thought in the field we leaked 10-15 runs more. There is some positive but if you have to win, you have to be good in all three departments. I think Sylhet have had a great journey so far but hopefully we will have a better match next time."

11.11pm Was that a T20 match or a five-year plan? Four hours and 10 minutes is how long the match lasted, and for no reason other than that both teams strolled around like they were enjoying a vacation in their private garden. Sylhet Sixers displayed their batting might, led by Andre Fletcher. They raced away to 205 and that total proved too much for Rajshahi. Sylhet maintain their pristine record this BPL, and what a debut season they are enjoying.

Mastan: "Sylhet got the best opener so far in BPL , Every time they a giving a boost start for the team !! "

Bhavik: "Sammy's poor show continues from PSL to CPL and now BPL. I hope they hand over the captaincy to someone else."

"We executed our plans well, says Andre Fletcher. It's not a one-man show, so it's good that everyone turned up. The surface was a bit slow. It's good that everyone is happy, we just need to continue doing whatever we've been doing well."
