9.25pm The batting was clinical, but the key was how well Comilla's spinners did, after a dominating start from Chittagong, courtesy Luke Ronchi and Soumya Sarkar. Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Arafat Sunny - put the brakes on with their combined figures of two for 50 from 10 overs to bring down a potential 180 target to 140. That made a bid difference in the end. Then Buttler and Imrul walked them home nearly before Samuels brought the house down with some stunning strokes. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as enjoyed bringing it to you. Until next time, I, Shashank Kishore, say goodbye on behalf of Nikhil Kalro. Cheers

Imrul Kayes is the Player of the Match for his steady 36-ball 45 that helped overcome a slow start and put Comilla on the road to victory. So a trophy and a cheque to savour along with the win. The perfect balm to sooth his injured hamstring, isn't it?

Jos Buttler: Quite clinical. Our bowlers were superb in the middle period to tie the opposition down. Yorkers are big part of the game, you try and practice as much as you can against it. T20 is good fun. I love these franchise tournaments, playing with different players and experience different cultures is great fun.

Tanbir Hayder to Samuels, SIX runs, clean strike and it's quite fitting that the best shot of the evening has brought the curtains down on what has been a dominating win for Comilla Victorians. Third win in four matches for Comilla. They join Dhaka Dynamites and Sylhet Sixes with six points in the standings. Lots of thinking to do for Chittagong, who weren't helped by yet another below-par batting performance.

END OF OVER:
18 | 6 Runs 1 Wkt | CV: 134/4 (6 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 7.44, RRR: 3.00)

Sunzamul Islam to Buttler, OUT, goes for another big hit, is deceived in flight as the keeper effects the simplest of stumpings. Didn't get to the pitch this time. Terrific innings nonetheless.
