Scorecard summary
Dhaka Dynamites202/7(20 overs)
Khulna Titans137(18.1 overs)

10.50pm Dhaka Dynamites have proved to be far too good this evening, racking up a score in excess of 200. When you do that, you generally win. And in the face of that daunting asking rate, the Khulna batsmen kept going, kept attacking, which was the right way to go, but just struggled to stay in touch after losing so many wickets.

Dhaka's bowlers were terrific, hitting the right lengths and the stumps quite often. Dhaka will be happy with that comeback after their tournament opener, but lots of work to do for Khulna.

Cameron Delport is the Man of the Match: "With the start we had, I could play freely. Last night didn't go our way, but we were just positive today."

Shakib Al Hasan: "We held back Sunil's two overs, but it was a very good performance overall. We need to keep that momentum. Our fast bowlers bowled really well, they've put their hands up today."

Mahmudullah: "When you're chasing 200, there will be pressure. Our bowlers did well to bring them back, our top order needs to fire. It's still the first game."

Narine to Shafiul Islam, OUT
that's that for today. Flat and straight, the regulation offbreak. Shafiul winds up and unleashes a wild slog, but makes no contact. Narine's offbreak though clatters into middle stump. Dhaka Dynamites win by 65 runs for their first win of the season

Abu Hider to Mosharraf Hossain, OUT
taken at mid-off. A low full toss on middle, Mosharraf backs away, looks to muscle the ball over mid-off. With this field, it's a good option but all he can do is chip the ball to mid-off, who takes an easy low catch
