Righto. That brings us to the end of our coverage. Hope you enjoyed it. We have a two-day break, but the tournament resumes on Saturday in Dhaka. We'll be delighted to have you join us then. Until then, it's goodbye from Karthik and me, Shashank Kishore. Cheers.

Khulna captain Mahmudullah is not just the winning captain but also the Player of the Match. "I was very happy, the way we played today," he says. "They were superb upfront with the new ball, especially picking up a couple of early wickets. We wanted to keep it simple. In the first game, we panicked a bit. Here we were stable and calm. We executed really well."

Sylhet captain Nasir Hossain: Disappointed today. The batting didn't come off, we lost too many wickets in the powerplays, couldn't string partnerships in the middle overs. I'm happy with my batting. I wanted to bat long and rotate the strike.

Michael Klinger: The bowlers were fantastic. After going for 200 in game one, to come back like that was special. So in the chase, even though we lost early wickets, there was no real pressure. But you had to put your ego away for a little bit and fight through. The run rate never really got too much over six or seven, we knew if we creak it up a little bit, we would be able to get home. We managed to get boundaries semi-regularly. It's been a lovely week here in Sylhet, hopefully we can keep the momentum going in Dhaka.

Mohammad Sharif to Klinger, FOUR runs
flicks this full toss into the deep square leg boundary. Khulna Titans are off the mark in BPL 2017. The experience and calm that Klinger brings has helped them ride a few wobbles and close out this chase. This also means Sylhet's three-match winning streak has been halted. Not the kind of result they wanted to give to their home fans on the last day of the tournament here, but they're still sitting pretty on top of the points standings.
