3.48pm That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. The next game between Chittagong Vikings and Rangpur Riders will start soon. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. See you in a little bit for match number six. See you!

3.43pm We're here for the presentation.

Shakib, the winning captain: "All the opponents are tough. We are playing well, but we need to keep the momentum. Lucky that all our players are performing, but it's a long tournament. We take a lot of pride playing for Dhaka, and we have only one desire: to win the cup. That's what we are trying, and there are still some areas for improvement.

Hazratullah Zazai, the Man of the Match: "Thanks to Allah I performed well. Today wicket was a little different, difficult for batting. When your form is going good, then you just try to do the best for your team. Enjoying myself, feels good."

Mahmudullah, the losing captain: "We didn't bat.....we batted poorly. Scoreboard pressure was there, but we didn't build any partnerships. When you're chasing 193, you have to use the Powerplay, but when we lost 3-4 wickets, then we needed a partnership to go on. They started really well in the first six, but our bowlers pulled things back. But with the Dhaka team, their batsmen are good and they used the good wicket. But in the end, it's our batters who didn't perform."

3.32pm Massive victory for Dhaka Dynamites. They've bowled Khulna out with 42 balls to spare. Trial by spin for the most part after posting a sizeable first-innings total. Shakib starred with three wickets after falling for a duck, and a bunch of run-outs didn't help Khulna's cause either. Earlier in the day, it was Zazai's half-century, and cameos from Pollard and Talukdar, that took them to 192. It proved to be way too much for a Khulna side that doesn't quite possess the batting firepower barring Stirling and Mahmudullah. Second loss for Khulna, second win for Dhaka. Stick around for presentations.

DRS: "Interesting Fact: Jahurul Islam Of Titans Has played for 6 Different Teams in all the 6 seasons (Chittagong Kings, Chittagong Vikings, Dhaka Dynamites, Duronto Rajshahi, Khulna Titans, Rangpur Riders)"

Narine to Ariful Haque, OUT, is that a run out?! Zahir has taken a huge tumble trying to complete the single, maybe he's lost his footing. It was a length ball tucked away to short fine leg, and while Narine's appealing for lbw, the batsmen try to pinch a single. But a rocket throw from Rubel to the keeper ensures that Zahir is well outside his crease. They're nine down and the game is over because Ali Khan injured his hamstring! Dhaka win by 105 runs!

Zahir Khan run out (Rubel Hossain/†Nurul Hasan) 0 (0b 0x4 0x6)

Narine to Ariful Haque, 1 wide, length ball on middle, and turning down the leg side. Quick work from the keeper to whip the bails off, but his back leg is inside the crease
Narine to Ariful Haque, no run, length ball on off, and spinning into middle. He's on the backfoot to flick off his pads, but misses the shot. Hits his front leg, and big shout for lbw. But not given
Narine to Shoriful Islam, OUT, flat outside leg stump, and he goes for a big leg-side heave. Top-edged to the off side, and short third man takes the easiest of catches. Khulna are disintegrating superfast

Shoriful Islam c Rubel Hossain b Narine 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Narine to Shoriful Islam, no run, full ball on middle, and spinning away from the left-handed batsman. Through to the keeper
Narine to Ariful Haque, 1 run, OUT, length ball on middle, and sliding through. Worked off his pads to deep backward square, but there's been some miscommunication! Both batsmen at the bowler's end, and the keeper whips the bails off for a run-out. Looks like Taijul didn't see his partner saying 'no second', and he has to pay the price

Taijul Islam run out (Mizanur Rahman/†Nurul Hasan) 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
