Right then, this is all we have from today. Chittagong are knocked out and Rajshahi keep their knockout hopes alive with a big win. We now move to Comilla Victorians v Dhaka Dynamites, which should be pretty exciting as the teams scrap for a top-two finish. We'll be back shortly with the live coverage of that game. Goodbye.

4.45pm A one-sided loss knocks Chittagong out of the tournament. And it's a stunning debut from Qazi Onik that scripts this win for Rajshahi. Four wickets in his maiden appearance for the left-arm pacer. Chittagong looked like they would chase this down with several overs to spare at one point. They were pretty much on course, but have paid the ultimate price for wasting a good start by losing wickets. And let's not forget contributions from Darren Sammy and Mushfiqur that helped Rajshahi recover to a decent score.

Tiger Lily: "Who else is hoping Onik gets the last one? Glad I tuned into this bottom-of-table scrap. Dream debut for the youngster!"

"It was a disgraceful effort with the bat, says Chittagong captain Luke Ronchi. The bowlers did a terrific job, but to get out like that was pretty poor. They did a fantastic job and got wickets when they needed. We kept things tight but we didn't make the most of the opportunities with the bat and let ourselves down."

"It was a good game today, especially for the bowlers," says Rajshahi captain Darren Sammy. "We've got a few games left, which we will try to finish on a high. The wicket was definitely not a 150-wicket. I thought we were 25-30 runs short but our bowlers did well. We've got two games left, and hopefully, if we can win those two games."

Darren Sammy is the Man of the Match.

Qazi Onik to Tanbir Hayder, OUT
another one holes out. Chittagong are unravelling pretty rapidly here. This is another length ball that he tries to flay to long-off and can only smash it straight into the hands of the fielder. Four wickets on debut for Onik
