That's all we have for you. Thanks for your company

Jahurul Islam is the Man of the Match

. "It was my first opportunity to bat in the centre I was just happy to finish the game. Pollard did most of the work. When he came in, the required rate was 14, when he left, it was only 8 and I and Mosaddek were able to do it."

"Today we showed character. Carlos played a great knock for Khulna, that gave them the momentum and we lost early wickets which set us back. But Pollard and Jahurul played really well. That shows we aren't a one-man team," Shakib Al Hasan says. "When you lose more than two-three wickets in the Powerplay, it's difficult to chase 160 runs. But we did that today and that gives us confidence. These games are very good for BPL, it will improve our cricket"

"I think up front we bowled really well. In the end, it was a bit disappointed. I was really happy with how the boys played though," Mahmudullah says. "With the new ball, it was gripping in the pitch a bit, as we saw both teams struggling in the Poweprlay. But Brathwaite and Rilee's partnership was crucial. And Pollard did the same for them. Happy to have held on to that catch [for Shakib's wicket], happy to contribute."

4.30 pm Heartbreaking loss for Khulna, and for Brathwaite in particular, who struck his maiden T20 fifty, and then was pulling off an outstanding final over. But his heroics come second best to compatriot Kieron Pollard, who slammed a 19-ball fifty.

Khulna brought the game back in the balance when they knocked over Pollard in the 15th over. That's when Jahurul Islam took over. He was 19 off 21 balls, slogging hard, but never finding the timing. He gutsed it out in the middle and finally walks away with the winning hit.

"I was under pressure after Shakib fell," he says. "But Pollard came and played an outstanding innings. It was most crucial, and it helped me finish it later because the required rate was only 8. I got in the wicket after a long time, I didn't play any big innings in the BPL. This is my first time. I was struggling for the first 20-25 balls. But then I started getting set and I said, if we bat through the innings, we would win" Big props to the man for admitting he was struggling.

Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, FOUR runs
reverse scoop! What a way to take the game! He realises the bowler will be going for a yorker, so he gets down low, watches the ball all the way through and with third man inside the boundary, he only needs to get the smallest bit of bat on it

Dhaka need four off two balls.

Brathwaite to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run
full toss outside offl, slaps it to deep point and Brathwaite claps himself on. Continues to stand up under pressure, this time with the ball.

Fine leg and square leg are inside the circle

Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, 1 leg bye
three toe-crushers in a row! Outstanding bowling from Brathwaite. There's something between him and the final over of a T20 match. Jahurul sneaks a legbye, just about digging the ball out outside off
Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, no run
another in the blockhole, and after missing this too, Jahurul yells in disappointment. Mosaddek runs up to his partner to calm him down
Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, no run
nails the yorker outside off. Jahurul tries to flick it, isn't able to because of the late inswing. He's nearly run out looking for a bye

Abu Jayed3-0-24-1
Jofra Archer4-0-26-1

Dhaka need six off the last six balls. Carlos Brathwaite, who set Khulna up with an innings of 64, to close things out

Abu Jayed to Mosaddek Hossain, FOUR runs
gets down the track, turns a yorker into a full toss and launches the ball to the extra cover boundary. Classical shot in crunch time
Abu Jayed to Jahurul Islam, 1 leg bye
sets up for the scoop, then has to think about the reverse scoop since the ball is a yorker outside off. Jayed makes sure the batsman can't get under the ball and the miscue becomes a single as it goes to the wicketkeeper. Good work from Mosaddek, beats the direct hit from Ghosh

Akter Hossain: "Mahmudullah has make a big mistake here Aby Zayed to be bowl over no. 18 & 20 and archer to be bowl in 19th over OMG!"

Abu Jayed to Jahurul Islam, 2 runs
swipes a full delivery outside off to the left of deep midwicket
Abu Jayed to Jahurul Islam, 2 runs
slaps a full and wide delivery to the left of long-off.
Abu Jayed to Jahurul Islam, no run
fuller delivery outside off, swings and misses
Abu Jayed to Jahurul Islam, FOUR runs
walks across outside off and basically sweeps the ball to the square leg boundary. Excellent work from Jahurul. He's persevered through a bad patch, and now he's preempting the bowler's moves. Knows this will be a yorker, so he moves outside the line, stands deep in his crease to give himself those extra milliseconds to sight and time the ball
end of over 188 runs

Shafiul Islam4-0-24-2

Looked like Carlos Brathwaite was about to bowl, but then Abu Jayed has been brought on instead. Dhaka need 19 off 12 now...

Archer to Mosaddek Hossain, no run
how did that miss?. A rip-roaring yorker, tailing in the air, at Mosaddek's off stump. The batsman is hurrying away from the line of the ball, it's at 144 kph. And even as he tries feebly to plant the bat on it, it whispers past the sticks. Archer has his head in his hands...
Archer to Jahurul Islam, 1 run
full on middle, he works it to long-on
Archer to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run
short-arm pull to a slower short ball outside off. Single to deep midwicket
Archer to Jahurul Islam, 1 run
yorker on middle, pushes it through cover
Archer to Jahurul Islam, FOUR runs
beautiful cricket from Jahurul! He gets down with the yorker, outside off, and slices it between point and short third man who had come up for that ball. Archer bowls the worst ball possible considering the leg-side strong field set for him

Fine leg is back. Square leg, midwicket and long-on are back as well

Archer to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run
slower ball, short of a length, Jahurul flat-bats it to long-on
end of over 177 runs

Abu Jayed2-0-12-1

Dhaka need 27 off 18. The highly impressive Jofra Archer has one over left. Abu Jayed, who took four wickets recently, has two left. Khulna are still in this

Shafiul Islam to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run
fuller delivery outside off, pushes to the sweeper
