5.29pm So that's all from the tournament opener in Sylhet. Rajshahi v Rangpur starts soon. Catch us there for all the action from Match No. 2 in just a little while. Goodbye for now!
5.22pm Time for the presentation ceremony.
Upul Tharanga is the Man of the Match. He says: "Chasing small targets are always tricky. We went after the bowling in the first six, and got easy for us after that. The way Fletcher played (going after the bowling), I just did my normal job."
Winning captain Nasir Hossain says: "Pretty happy and proud to win the first games. Our bowlers bowled well in the first six overs to get the momentum towards us. Our plans worked out. Thank you to the crowd for supporting us and hope they come and support us every match. Hope to see all of you tomorrow and hope you continue to support cricket."
Losing captain Shakib Al Hasan: "We didn't play according to our potential. Still very early in the tournament, and hopefully we can bounce back. It's a nice venue, we played a domestic tournament here, and it looks good. Hopefully there will be some international matches in the future. We have to come back stronger, and with the team we have we know we can do that. We aim to go all the way."
Tharanga's here: "Credit to bowlers to keep them under 140. Starting off with a win is really good. Everyone did well today, but especially Fletcher. The way he played allowed me to bat easily. He was outstanding. Pitch was good, it got a bit slower, but our bowlers basically adapted well. And when we started to bat, the batting got easy."
5.11pm Quite easily done then, eh? Sylhet Sixers cruise to victory with more than three overs to spare. It was a tricky target, but the openers Tharanga and Fletcher made quick work of the moderate score. They were never in trouble, and to be honest, cantered to the win in front of their home crowd. The Sixers bowlers, led by Liam Plunkett and Nasir Hossain, kept the target down to 137, and deserve the same applause as their openers. Dhaka Dynamites - loaded with Sangakkara, Pollard and Shakib - could not post a big enough total on a decent batting surface, and that came to haunt them eventually. We'll be back with the presentation very soon.
Scores are tied
Supun: "Upul Tharanga from Sri Lanka or kidding? Never seen him batting like this"
Too little too late, you'd think. Sabbir in now.
Ihsaan: "I was looking forward to watching Sabbir Rahman bat, guess I have to wait until tomorrow now " -- Pollard pulls out of the delivery at the last moment. We've got to redo this all over again
slight hold up here, looks like Fletcher wants new gloves but that's not happening mid over. The batsman will have to wait
