9.35pm There it is - Rangpur, Khulna, Dhaka, and Comilla are the four teams in the playoffs. How crucial were those late hits from Mithun? Rangpur plundered 33 off their last two overs to lift the total to 147. That has made the difference this game. Do stick around for the presentation.

Mahmudullah: Losing wickets in regular intervals hurt us. The last two overs the bowlers went for runs, but we managed to restrict them to a good total. Next game we need to pull our socks up and finish in the top two.

Mashrafe: With Archer's wicket we were in the game. Mithun has not got to finish games this season, but today we finished it. Because of his innings we won the game. On this wickets spinners can play a good role, that's why we had three spinners. At the moment, we are happy we can through.

Mithun, Man of the Match for his unbeaten 50 off 35 balls.

That is all we have for you from this match. Thanks for reading. Until next time, goodbye and good night

Waleed Zahoor: "Mahmullah's pathetic captaincy has cost them the match. Not playing Junaid was a big blunder, but giving the last 2 overs to Archer and Shafiul were even bigger howlers. Brathwaite and Abu Jayed wouldn't have bowled this poorly "
