Rangpur Riders pick up their maiden win of the competition. As for Khulna, they suffer the same fate as Rangpur did a few days ago: losing their first match of the competition.

They were going at nearly 10 an over at the halfway stage and had all their wickets intact. But after Howell broke through, one wicket led to another and before they knew it, the required rate was getting out of hand, having crossed the 12-an-over mark.

Rilee Rossouw and Ravi Bopara set it up with their batting and the bowlers then battled a strong Khulna start and dew to apply the choke and deliver the win. Stay tuned, we'll be back with the presentations.

Stokes: "Haha!"

"I think the target wasn't that huge. It was chaseable," says losing captain Mahmudullah. "We had a good start, but didn't capitalise in the middle overs, where we didn't score enough boundaries. I think the bowlers did well but the fielding was disappointing. We need to look at improving in that department. We lost three-four wickets in the middle and at one point didn't accelerate as well as we would've wanted to."

Rilee Rossouw is Man of the Match. "You never know what you;re going to get on this pitch, so the team talk was to take your time and take it as deep as we could. Fortunately, Ravi and I managed to do well. You just need to knock it around before you can start scoring runs."

"Lot of dew, so wicket is lot better in the second half," says winning captain Mashrafe Mortaza. "When we started, I didn't think we'd score 170, but the way Rossouw and Ravi batted was excellent. I've got some injuries still. Paul Stirling played a good innings. It's a good comeback, but we have to keep the momentum going. We've got big games coming up. It's important to keep the momentum and take off from there."

That's a wrap of this game. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of it. We have ourselves a break tomorrow, but back on Tuesday with more action. See you then!

Two sixes needed now.

Farhad Reza to Jahurul Islam, 1 run, dropped. Thumps this fuller one straight to extra cover who shells it. Mashrafe it is. Hit very hard, though

Farhad Reza to Jahurul Islam, FOUR runs, actually it's Jahurul on strike. Got a little carried away there, I suppose. But he does well himself as he collects a four down the ground to this full toss

Twenty needed off the last over. Time for Brathwaite to do his thing. Somebody bring Ben Stokes on!
