Chittagong Vikings139/4(20 overs)
Comilla Victorians140/4(18.1 overs)

9.25pm The batting was clinical, but the key was how well Comilla's spinners did, after a dominating start from Chittagong, courtesy Luke Ronchi and Soumya Sarkar.

Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Arafat Sunny - put the brakes on with their combined figures of two for 50 from 10 overs to bring down a potential 180 target to 140. That made a bid difference in the end. Then Buttler and Imrul walked them home nearly before Samuels brought the house down with some stunning strokes. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as enjoyed bringing it to you. Until next time, I, Shashank Kishore, say goodbye on behalf of Nikhil Kalro. Cheers

Imrul Kayes is the Player of the Match for his steady 36-ball 45 that helped overcome a slow start and put Comilla on the road to victory. So a trophy and a cheque to savour along with the win. The perfect balm to sooth his injured hamstring, isn't it?

Jos Buttler: Quite clinical. Our bowlers were superb in the middle period to tie the opposition down. Yorkers are big part of the game, you try and practice as much as you can against it. T20 is good fun. I love these franchise tournaments, playing with different players and experience different cultures is great fun.

Tanbir Hayder to Samuels, SIX runs
clean strike and it's quite fitting that the best shot of the evening has brought the curtains down on what has been a dominating win for Comilla Victorians. Third win in four matches for Comilla. They join Dhaka Dynamites and Sylhet Sixes with six points in the standings. Lots of thinking to do for Chittagong, who weren't helped by yet another below-par batting performance.

Sunzamul Islam to Buttler, OUT
goes for another big hit, is deceived in flight as the keeper effects the simplest of stumpings. Didn't get to the pitch this time. Terrific innings nonetheless.

sees the ball tossed up over his eyeline, gets close to the pitch and wallops this by going over wide long-on. Tremendous bat speed as he came down on that

this has been blasted over the bowler's head. Too much flight, he gets right to the pitch of the ball and swings this over the boundary

Tanbir Hayder to Buttler, 2 runs
terrific piece of fielding at long-on. The ball may have got stuck inside his hat as it flew off his head. Umpire's not interested. That was absolutely drilled down the ground

w
Sunzamul Islam to Imrul Kayes, OUT
drags this big hit from way outside off toward deep midwicket. Wanted to go over long-on but didn't get to the pitch and simply got it off the inner part of the bat. He may have been better off going back, did the job for the team though. Helped overcome a slow start and put Comilla on the road to victory
