That's all we have for you today. Thanks for joining us

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Match"I want to perform for the team. I want to thank God I got wickets today and hopefully I can keep it up. When you have from the other end a bowler helping out, then the batsman tries to take risk. If I am going well and he is going well as well we will take wickets. Our batting plan was to be positive and play till the end. It was totally a team effort. Everything was just perfect"

"The toss was very important. We already decided we would bowl first," Mohammad Nabi says. "They played well in the first six overs, but after that the spinners bowled really well, especially Rashid. The wicket was turning, so that's why we bowled very well, Rashid and me. On this kind of pitch, it's very difficult to play us. Looking forward to giving the captaincy back to Tamim. Been difficult to perform with that [burden]"

"I thought the wicket was very good to bat on early. Then Simmons got injured and we lost momentum," Mushfiqur Rahim says. "We'll have a scan tomorrow. But he's not looking good. Let's see. Right after he was injured two new comers were at the crease and that's hard against Rashid and Nabi. We didn't get any partnerships going and we lost wickets in clusters. We need to do better in the next match"

9.00 pm Two wins in two games spread over two weeks for Comilla Victorians. Showed no signs of rust though. The bowlers, especially Nabi and Rashid who picked up five wickets and made sure 32 of their 48 deliveries were dots, were outstanding.

Then, on a tricky pitch, Jos Buttler batted through to make highly composed fifty in conditions he would rarely face back home in England. "It was a very chaseable target and it was just about getting partnerships together," he says. "Some fantastic bowling. Rashid is probably one of the best T20 bowlers in the world. It's one of those pitches where you have to give yourself a change, you have to get in and not having too much scoreboard pressure allowed us the chance to play without taking risk"

Imrul Kayes at the other end was pretty solid as well, finishing with 44 not out off 41 balls.

comes down the track and heaves the ball out to deep midwicket. Gets an inside edge because Nihad has pulled all the pace off. Fifty for Buttler
Nihaduzzaman to Buttler, FOUR runs

Nihaduzzaman to Imrul Kayes, 1 run
gets down the track, but the left-arm spinner spots the move early and places it wide of the batsman's reach. Kayes slogs, but gets only an inside edge through midwicket

Kesrick Williams3-0-33-0
Williams to Buttler, no run
feigns to move down leg, and then re-positions himself in front of the stumps. Williams follows the batsman and very nearly ends up giving away a wide, or being struck to the fine leg boundary as Buttler's swipe misses
Williams to Imrul Kayes, 1 run
works a full delivery on off stump to deep midwicket
Williams to Buttler, 1 run
clears the front leg so he can swing at a leg-stump yorker to send it down to long-on
Williams to Buttler, SIX runs
free hit that shouldn't have been a free hit goes outta the ground. Short ball, heaved over deep midwicket
Williams to Buttler, (no ball) FOUR runs
picks the slower ball and launches it to the long-on boundary, helped by Franklin misfielding on the boundary. Doesn't bend down properly. Meanwhile, the umpire calls a no-ball that isn't
Williams to Buttler, 2 runs
pulls a short ball out to deep midwicket. Super timing
Williams to Imrul Kayes, 1 run
whips a fuller delivery on off stump to deep midwicket

Farhad Reza2-0-31-1
Nihaduzzaman to Buttler, no run
beaten and its a beauty too. Good length to keep Buttler crease bound. Grips the pitch, which has definitely helped the bowlers by being slow and perhaps even a touch damp, and breaks away spectacularly. Buttler, with a feeble poke, is outmatched
Nihaduzzaman to Imrul Kayes, 1 run
steers a shortish delivery to short third man
Nihaduzzaman to Imrul Kayes, no run
goes for the slog sweep, but Nihaduzzaman has confounded those intentions with a quick, and a very full delivery. Kayes can't get under it to get power in the shot
Nihaduzzaman to Buttler, 1 run
drives to long-off
