8:13pm And that is all from our coverage of the BPL today. Good night!

Mashrafe Mortaza: It was a big match. We had to keep the momentum going. It was a good toss to win. In Mirpur you cannot predict the wicket. That's how we approached the decision. The bowlers did well. Taking wickets you need some luck. I think was a bit lucky. All the bowlers put it in the right areas and then I got the wickets. It was a team effort. That's how it is in T20 cricket. Very important to get momentum. The way we've been in the ground the last two matches has been very good. Hopefully it'll carry on, many matches coming up.

Mashrafe Mortaza is the Player of the Match.

Steven Smith: You don't win too many games when your top six gets single digits. We watched the first game and there was a big score. We probably didn't sum up the conditions well. We could have gone a bit easier in the start and have wickets in the back end. But tonight wasn't our night and we got outplayed. Got a few things to look at, plenty of time left in the tournament.

7:57pm Second win for Rangpur Riders. This one sends them rocketing up to be tied in first place with Dhaka Dynamites. That net run rate will increase drastically as well. A comprehensive win today. Comilla Victorians just couldn't challenge at any point of the game.
