5:51pm: Chittagong were rattled by early strikes but there was no recovery. Cooper was impressive with his slower balls and as was Al-Amin. Naeem offered the lone source of resistance, making 38 off 40 balls. Eventually, Mahmudullah's fifty and Seekkuge's late blows proved to be the difference as Chittagong crashed to their fourth loss in five matches.

Presentation:

Tamim Iqbal: It was an important game for us, we lost it in the middle. They batted beautifully in the last eight overs. Credit goes to the Barisal boys. We just need one good game and carry on the momentum.

Mahmudllah: Our top order has to cope with the pressure. The wicket was so good to bat on. The recovery was well. Sekku played a brilliant knock.

Cooper, Man of the Match: As an allrounder it is important to give 100%. We don't have much big players but we put in the hardwork. I think we have the best bowling line-ups in this competition.

That is that from this match. Do come back for the second game of the day, featuring Comilla and Sylhet.
